Guest at Your Table Continues 


Sunday, January 20, bring your box with a check enclosed. Make check payable to UU St Pete with GAYT on the Memo line.

Last week we introduced you to Valentina who traveled via caravan from El Salvador to the US, and asked for asylum when she crossed the border into California in November, 2017. After seven months in a detention center in California and paying a $15,000 bond, she now resides in a host home and supports women detained in the Orange Count, CA jail with phone calls and letters.

By sharing our Guests’ stories we hope to raise your awareness about human rights issues that Central Americans face in their home countries, during their treks through Mexico and then at our southern border as they seek asylum in the US.

To participate in a more in-depth look at these human rights issues — join us at the Religious Wednesdays Studies programs on January 16, 10am or 7pm in Conway Hall. Reading for this week are:

Use parking lot/playground entrance. These workshops are co-facilitated by Rev Jack and Social Justice Co-Chair Karen Coale.

Please continue to share meals with our Guests by placing the cost of those meals in your Guest at Your Table box. On Sunday, January 20, our children will be collecting your boxes with the enclosed donations during the service. It would be most helpful if you would combine your donations into a single check made payable to UU St Pete with Guest at Your Table in the Memo line. That way we can write a single check to the UUSC. 

Thank you, your Social Justice Farmworker/Immigrant Committee
