Farewell for Donna - This Sunday
EVERYONE who is not going to the NASCAR Race this Weekend is expected to be in attendance this Sunday for the Farewell for Donna. It will happen between services - there will be food! It all gets started at 9:45. Be here and make sure to communicate how much LCM appreciates all that Donna has done in her twenty-one years of serving as UniLu's Secretary.
Pilgrimage of Truth-Telling - March 4
The Unitarian Campus Ministry has invited us to a Pilgrimage across campus, to speak of the truth of our campus and its history. The walk begins at 5 and ends at 7:30. LCM will pay for your dinner. Here is a link to the Google Doc, the link to the registration page is at the bottom. Pilgrimage.
Shrove Tuesday - March 5
LCM will be cooking pancakes for the congregation on Shrove Tuesday. The cooking starts at 4:30, folks start eating around 5:30. We stop fixing food at 7:00, and then need a clean up crew. Michael will be lining up helpers.
Ash Wednesday - March 6
The Lenten season begins in two weeks. Now is the time to think about your spiritual discipline for these 40 days. "Giving something up" is a means to making room for something else. What might you make room for in your life? Awareness of the blessings we take for granted - like food? A few minutes to read your bible or to pray? Maybe a weekly service activity. Our Wednesday gathering on March 6 will involve a meal as usual, then moving over to the Sanctuary for worship.
UniLu Lenten Observances - Thursday
The congregation's mid-week Lenten services will be on Thursday nights. There will be a dinner at 6:00, worship at 7:00. The liturgy is Tazie style, with Eucharist. The sermons will address how God's people do the work in the world Jesus calls on us to do - without it seeming to be "political" or partisan.
Camping Trip - March 29-31
We will spend two nights sleeping in the Sanders' Barn. Bring hammocks, mattresses, even a tent. There are bathrooms, but no showers. Meals will be camp-fire inspired. And we will return to town for the In-As-Much service projects on Saturday. Here is the link to sign up - #LetsGetWild!
There is another rodeo happening on Friday March 1st! It starts at 8:00, so if folks want to meet in the lounge at 7:00 and carpool, that'd be great. Tickets are $20. sign up so we know to look for you before we depart!
