No Adult RE offering today.

Plan Ahead

September 16 — 9:30 am  in the Community Room  Movie Talk: Two movies fold time to look at the present from the past. We will compare these two journeys looking at how each informs and illustrates our UU principles:

Go see “Christopher Robin.” A  search across time and acres for lost friends, lost creativity and perhaps a lost soul.  The movie is not treacly (despite title),  nor is it melancholy; in fact there are laugh-out-loud moments.

Go see “BlacKkKlansman.”  Return to a time when the Colorado Springs Police Department was all white and the Klan was active.  This movie is not a comedy (despite trailers), to quote Rotten Tomatoes it “uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events.”

We will meet at 9:30 am  in the Community Room (located in the far corner of the Enrichment Center) to discuss Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin and Denzel Washington’s son as Ron Stallworth.

September 16 — 19th Century Universalist History Series starts — led by Ken Lofgren. 

Join us for a 6-week adult RE class on 19th Century Universalism. Each class will be offered twice: once on Sunday morning (9:30-10:15 am)  and once on Wednesday evening (7:00-8:00 pm) in Gore Hall Classroom A.

Topics:

9/16 & 9/19 Life of Hosea Ballou. How did an uneducated farm boy become the most influential American Universalist minister in history?

9/23 & 9/26 Becoming A Minister. What did it take to become a Universalist minister and why did that need to change? What were the first Universalist theological schools?

9/30 & 10/3 Defending the Faith. How did Universalists respond to attacks (physical and verbal) from other Christian denominations?

10/7  &  10/10 Sharing the News. How did Universalists use journals (newspapers) to share their news? We will explore an original Universalist journal from 1843: The Evangelical Magazine and Gospel Advocate.

10/14 & 10/17 Reforming Society. What social reform issues were important to early Universalists?

10/21 & 10/24 Life of Olympia Brown. What were some of the challenges faced by the first woman to graduate from theological school and become a Universalist minister?

Mystic Grove Monthly Meeting  — 12:00 pm, Room 1

The Mystic Grove is a mixed Pagan group that is affiliated with the First Unitarian Church of Orlando and CUUPs. Rituals are volunteer led and the volunteer may choose to do the ritual in the style of their Pagan path. Although we vary in the different Pagan paths we follow, we are all Unitarian Universalists. 1st Sunday Meetings are a great way to get to know us and how we work. Everyone is welcome to attend in Room 1. Here we discuss how the past ritual went, plan for next ritual, classes, craft circles, and more. Lunch at a nearby restaurant to follow for those interested in fellowship. For more info, email us at mysticgrove@orlandouu.org.

Wrestling with our Understandings around Race — 12:00–1:00 pm, Room A Gore Hall

This is an open meeting on the first Sunday of each month. The events of the past few years have called our attention to issues of race, and understanding our relationship to those issues. Each week our attention is drawn to another event in the public eye around race and justice. Many of us are wrestling with understanding and responding to ourexperience, our emotions, and what we are called to do. It can be difficult, and for some of us it is destabilizing. Let us remain open in our hearts to this journey. We anticipate deep conversation within the congregation, and hope for greater understanding, healing and spiritual development. You may find readings and resources at:  https://wordpress.com/posts/wrestlingwithrace.wordpress.com.

Leave 1U a Gift from Your Estate and Get a 10% Match Now

If you name 1U or certain other UU organizations as beneficiaries in your will, living trust, or IRA, and notify the Wake Now Our Vision Legacy Challenge, the named beneficiary organization(s) could be eligible to receive a 10% match immediately. Shelter Rock, a very generous UU congregation, is currently providing up to $5 million in matching funds for this campaign with the goal of encouraging people to strengthen Unitarian Universalism through planned giving.

So, for example: If someone identifies their intention to leave $100,000 to 1U and files an application for the match, 1U could be eligible to receive $10,000 in matching funds now. One third of the $5 million is already committed, so it is important to act now, while the match is available. To learn how you can participate, visit www.wakenowourvision.org, or email Endowment@orlandouu.org.

Ongoing Activities, Needs & Resources

1U Central: Your One Stop 1U Info Spot

Do You Have an RMD and Are 70½ or Older?

A Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA or Inherited IRA can cause a higher tax burden. Consider paying your pledge to the Church via a direct Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA. If you are 70½ or older you can instruct your IRA or Inherited IRA custodian to send your QCD directly to the Church to pay your pledge. A QCD counts dollar-for-dollar toward fulfillment of an RMD (up to $100,000) but is excluded from taxable income. You can view or download a sample letter for instructing your IRA custodian here or contact Amy at the Church office to receive it by email. If you have questions contact Michael Cohen or any other member of the Church Endowment Board (Mike Haddad, Jean Siegfried, Diane P. Kerkhoff or Ken Lofgren). For specific tax advice contact a tax professional.

1U Maintenance Contact Info

We now have an email for you to use to let the Long Term Maintenance & Enhancement Team (LTME) know if you observe something on campus that you feel needs repair or some loving attention. Remember that we now will have monthly inspections of the campus in order to monitor buildings and grounds, so we should be more on top of routine maintenance than we have been in the past. That said, the more eyes on things the better. You can always mention an item to the team members: Alan Oberholtzer, Alex Moore, Dan Homblette, George Hooper, John Hartgering, or Mike McCleskey. However if you want to send us an email, please use ltm@orlandouu.org. please be as specific as possible, including details on the location. Send a picture rather than a thousand words. Thanks, LTME Team.
