Social Justice Reading Circle: Her Body, Our Laws

Meeting with Ahmadiyya Muslim women

Thursday, June 14 at 10 a.m. in The Friarplace 

Come meet with Ahmadiyya Muslim women.  We will continue our time to socialize, chat and have a chance to learn more about the Muslim faith.    EUUC has a long relationship with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community beginning when its mosque was in Lynnwood.   This is the 4th get together we have had and each has been a wonderful way to learn and grow together.  Take advantage of this chance to get to know each other more deeply.

Because this is Ramadan, there will not be food.  Let Carolyn Tucker know if you have questions.  RSVP to the EUUC office.

Announcements

EUUC’s new website is around the corner 

EUUC is moving to a new website on Sunday evening, June 3. It will be reached at the same web address- euuc.org. It is based on a website template produced by the Unitarian Universalist Association, which is used by many other Unitarian Universalist congregations. It can be viewed easily on many different devices – tablets, smart phones, laptops, desktop computers. We wish to thank our retiring webmaster, Nancy Samuels, who has spent the past 12 years creating and maintaining our content-rich website. We owe Nancy a huge debt of gratitude for her dedication and countless hours maintaining the EUUC presence on the web, and setting up a technical infrastructure that supports many operations of our congregation. More Information.

Mini potlucks- Seeking volunteers to host summer potlucks

If you would like to host a summer potluck in your home for new members to meet other members please contact Cyndy Norman at the Minipotluck email. Potlucks are important for helping new members get acquainted. Plus, they are fun!

Help create a just transition to a clean energy economy. Turn in your I-1631 petitions.

To the 62+ people who have turned in 911 signatures as of May 20 – thank you. To those of you who perhaps don’t see yourself as the “petition type” or who keep meaning to take it to your office – now’s the time to do it. Folk have found it’s easier than they thought. “Everyone in book club signed it.” “My neighbors were happy to do it.” The Snohomish County goal is 10,000 signatures. We are hoping to make a significant dent at 2,000 signatures. Bring yours next Sunday, no matter how many you have. The absolute deadline is June 17.

New Directories ready to pick up in the office 

We were waiting to print another batch of directories, which will include all of our new members, until after the Congregational meeting so that our updated Bylaws could be included.  Come pick up your new directory at your convenience in the office.

Still Time to Support the Malala Fund

The Advocates for Women committee thanks everyone who attended our complimentary Pakistani dinner last Sunday and contributed so generously to the Malala Fund. Founded in 2013, the Malala Fund champions every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education. We received over $3,300 in donations that the Malala Fund will invest in local educators and activists in countries where the most girls are not in school. If you were unable to attend our dinner, you can still contribute to this global movement. Please send your check to EUUC with A4W Malala written in the memo line.

Initiative #1600– Whole Washington

Initiative #1600 is a proposal to support Universal Healthcare for all Washington residents.  Access to affordable healthcare is important for all of the Social Justice projects we do as a congregation. Initiative #1600 proposes replacing Washington’s current multi-payer system in which individuals, private businesses and government entities pay public and private insurers for health care coverage with a state health plan available to all residents. Sign petitions to get Initiative #1600 on the ballot at the Social Justice Desk.

UUA General Assembly in June

The UUA General Assembly is in Kansas City, MO from June 20 to 24. Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. EUUC is entitled to 6 delegates and these can attend in person or online. If you are interested in being a delegate, contact the office. Delegates attend the business meetings and participate in the decisions made at this meeting. Find more information at the UUA website. Our GoGA fund is available to help with the cost of attending. Also, If you plan to focus on Social Justice workshops, you can apply for a stipend from the Social Justice Council. Need more information? Contact any member of the Board of Trustees or the office.

Sunday Offering for June

Mujeres de Maiz Foundation is Sunday Offering’s cause for June, and founder, Judith Pasco, will be speaking to us on June 3 during the service, bringing us up to date on scholarships she will be awarding to indigenous women and children to continue their education. Judith will be going to Chiapas, Mexico, this summer as she does every year, to award these scholarships and catch up on students’ progress and the impact this effort has had on several communities. Sunday Offering has given support to Mujeres on a regular basis because Judith is a UU who has brought education opportunities to many with very little in the way of resources.

Weekly Family Email

Our Minister for Faith and Justice, the Rev. Cecilia Kingman, sends out a weekly email update about the week’s programs and other special announcements. If you have children under 18 and would like to receive this weekly message, send a note to Cecilia and include your children’s names and ages, and your name and contact info.
