Upcoming Events – February

New Group for Caregivers of LGBTQIA+ Young People

Parents of LGBTQIA+ young people, please join us in gathering on the first Friday of every month from 7:30-9PM for mutual support and celebration of our kids. Our February meeting will take place on February 2nd.  Please RSVP to dre@uudanbury.org.  

UUCD Men Conversing over Coffee meets on the second Wednesday of each month.  Our next meeting is on Wednesday, February 14th at 10:00 a.m. at UUCD in the Fellowship Hall Lower Level. For more information contact Jeff Asher or Joe Gillotti.

February 10th: Suze Shaner and Dan Brodax are facilitating Movies with a Message, using Spiritual Cinema’s movie shorts the second Saturday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. These nights will consist of 1-3 short movies that explore the big questions about life and living (i.e, Who are we? Why are we here? Where are we bound? and What can we become when we live at our highest level of potential? ) with discussion afterwards. We will supply water and popcorn. Feel free to bring your takeout dinner. Donations to UUCD accepted.

Our wonderful Community Dinner for February will fall on Wednesday, February 14 – an auspicious day – and our Board and Common Council will make sure we are fed both physically and spiritually.  What does the spirit of love mean when applied to a community? We will find out. Watch for the signup notice at the beginning of February.

Generally speaking, people do not like to talk about death. Joni Lowe and Marcia Brooker invite you to have such a conversation with members of this congregation beginning in February. The Death Cafe will be offered to give participants an opportunity to explore different aspects of death and/or the dying process. The cafe is conversational amongst a small group of attendees so everyone one may ask questions and share. The group will be limited to 8 people and will meet on Sundays right after the service every other week beginning February 25th.  Sign up to claim your spot, grab your tea/coffee after the Sunday service and come downstairs for community and conversation. Please contact Joni Lowe or Marcia Brooker for questions or to sign up.
