Update from the Ministerial Search Committee

 

The Ministerial Search Committee has met a few times and we wanted to let everyone know that we are committed to nominating a candidate for Minister that best matches the needs and wishes of the congregation.  We are taking a thoughtful and careful approach to the process as laid out by the UUA and have met with their representatives. Our approach over the coming months will be to gather as much relevant information as possible from the congregation in order to be able to articulate what we, as a congregation, want to attract in terms of the best possible candidate for the position.  We are determining the most effective ways to gather this information through Focus Groups, Surveys, and One-on-one Interviews which will occur during the month of September. The Search Committee will continue to work with the UUA utilizing their best practices and the information from the congregation in order help nominate the best possible candidate.  As we meet and more information is available, we will continue to share our progress.  Thank you for your trust and support.

USSB Women's Group

July 27, 7pm, La Paz Lounge

"USSB Women's Group is starting a new book, New York Times bestseller

"The Power of Habit:  Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business," by Charles Duhigg. New members and even interested drop-ins are welcome. We are more than just a book discussion group; in fact reading the book is somewhat optional, as the ideas from the books stand on their own and serve us for discussion purposes. I think of us mostly as a women's support group. For more information, contact Charlene Little at 805-969-2956.

Shen Zhen Gong Classes
Week-day classes in Parish Hall

www.shengzhensb.com

Sheng Zhen Gong (shung jen goong) is a unique system of Qigong, an ancient form of healing movement and meditation that has been practiced for thousands of years. Sheng Zhen Gong is unique in that it naturally opens the heart. Love and qi are seen to be original, universal energies that are intertwined. As one's heart opens through regular practice, love and qi flow easily, naturally. One is able to settle into a state of ease, the qigong state, the peaceful state of "merging into all." These simple movements can improve health, balance emotions, open the heart, elevate the spirit, and more. For more information and to view the class schedule, please visit www.shengzhensb.com

Pastoral Care E-mail

“Nurturing a spirit of connection and support during times of need.”

When a crisis hits or a major life transition happens, sometimes we need a little extra support. “Pastoral Care” is the term used to describe the kind of care that we offer one another during these hard times.  It may mean a visit from the minister, a bouquet of flowers or a hot meal, or simply sitting down with a cup of tea and another member of the congregation who is willing to listen.

The goal of Pastoral Care is to offer a supportive presence, to help in transition, to provide an environment of hope and growth, and to offer support on the spiritual journey.  If a member has a more serious concern or an ongoing need for support, we can help with a referral to outside resources.

Members, please login for more information.
