Sunday, Apr 26Service: What Makes Us UUs?

We need to reflect and celebrate upon this regularly, and be able to speak to our contemporaries. This is a refresher course on who we are and what makes us UUs. Rev. Hover is a retired UU minister.

Dear Parents and Youth (age 12 and over),   
 
A youth retreat, with the emphasis on fun, will happen at Sugarloaf, May 15/16!  D. Ohlandt, a professional youth adventure facilitator, UU Arlington Church member, known and valued in the JPD administration and by the Arlington RE Director, has been hired by our RE Committee.  The retreat is just for our youth (ages 12-15) and their friends.
 
D. tells us: “This overnight retreat will provide opportunities for bonding, reflection, indoor and outdoor adventures, group and individual challenges, and, most importantly, fun!  The retreat will be tailored specifically to our youth, and all activities during the retreat will build on and connect to one another. For the fullest experience, youths should plan to attend the entire retreat,” including the overnight stay. 
 
Informal registration, ASAP, (DEADLINE – April 14) is necessary for us to begin planning.  Therefore, please, let Helen Pop know your possible number of youth participants by phone (301/ 229-0549, 9 AM to 9 PM) or email hpop@verizon.net .  Secondly, with the deadline of April 8th, it would help with the planning if you give us your top two priorities (from the list below) that you feel would be most desirable for D. to focus on:
 
1.   working together/ self-discovery of cooperative strengths
2.   self identity "who am i?" 
3.   communication skills/open-heartedness
4.   personal goal setting
5.   resilience/persistence
6.   creativity/ thinking out of the box
7.   group building, cohesion
8.   parents, teachers, mentors to be included
9.   UU identity along with an attitude that generates gratitude
10.  values, priorities, including exercising more Earth-friendly awareness
       while living on our peaceful, bountiful land
 
All who plan to participate in Sugarloaf’s First Ever Retreat will receive, by April 17, the final information and form to be returned to Tiana by the April 24 deadline.  For logistical purposes, at this point, please RSVP to Helen Pop by April 8 indicating your interest and priorities for this retreat.
 
With Great Anticipation,
