Credo: A Spiritual Journey
Marsha Kelly, a member of UUCC since 1977, began her spiritual journey in the First Methodist Church of dusty Lubbock, Texas. A lifelong path of questioning and questing has led her through what now seems like ever widening and overlapping circles of meaning and love. Family, communion with women, birth, Mexico, writing and travel all have brought spiritual depth and meaning to her life, and keep teaching her over and over again. She will share this journey and the varied and re-visited experiences that have made her heart sing throughout her life this Sunday, January 25 at 10:30 a.m. in the Bernstein Room. Childcare provided.

Ah-hA Social Justice Auction
We know UUs have a strong history rooted in social justice. And we know our congregation demonstrates its commitment to justice, equity and compassion in human relations through ongoing efforts centered on Homelessness and Affordable Housing, a focus chosen by a vote of the congregation in 2008. But did you know?...The UUCC Social Justice Team makes significant grants to Charlotte-based agencies working to address the root causes of homelessness in our community. And did you know?...The funds for these grants come exclusively from monies raised at the UUCC Auction! This year’s Social Justice Auction will be a fun opportunity for both fundraising and friendraising as we unite to devote our time, energy and resources to this important work. So much goes into the planning and implementation of a successful auction. Please consider volunteering for an organizing committee and/or making a donation. Contact Craig Miller or Trish Hevey, auction co-chairs, for more information or to get involved in our Affordable housing and homelessness Auction – Ah-hA!
