WEDNESDAY MORNING MEDITATION AT UU St. Pete

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 7:30am - 8:00am
Location: Gilmour Hall

Midweek Dawn Meditation (7:30-8:00 a.m.) for a boost  through the week.  

Weekly, beginning Wednesday October 3rd, UU St. Pete will start adding more meditation and contemplative prayer gatherings to our church week.  It seems that our world is still in need of deeper understanding and deeper caring.  For that, it seems we also need more of the community and the inner peace which promote that  understanding and caring.  Please take time to join us and add some light to the dawn.  Coffee and tea after, for those with time.

Farmworker/Immigrant Planning Meeting

Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

This Social Justice subcommittee supports Farmworker and Immigrant Families by identifying and organizing our Church’s  participation in projects that support these immigrant communities via direct outreach as well as advocate for systemic change. There are so many ways to help these underserved and often neglected populations. We welcome your ideas and encourage your involvement in this very loving and meaningful work.

At our monthly planning meetings we review status of existing projects and plan new educational and advocacy events as well as steps for outreach to specific individuals. 

Please join us -- all are welcome.

Social Justice Planning Meeting

Thursday, November 1, 2018 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Front Office

At this time the UU St Pete Social Justice Committee includes these five ministries: 

  • American Promise 
  • Fair Trade Coffee & Chocolate Sales
  • Farmworker/Immigrant Families
  • FAST
  • UU’s Helping People 

Our events and projects support those in-need, address local and wide-ranging injustices and the building of local justice networks. Some projects are Outreach; like providing a meal for the less fortunate and supporting refugee families’ basic and educational needs.

This past year we continued our Justice efforts; wanting to address systemic issues. Examples include advocating against punitive immigration legislation at the state and federal levels, working with USF and other organizations on the Tiny Homes for Veterans and Homeless Bill of Rights, joining the FAST network of Churches to increase affordable housing, improve schools and the juvenile justice system and economic justice thru our FairTrade Chocolate and Coffee sales. 

We also maintained and strengthened our partnerships with other organizations – The Society of Friends, Coalition of Downtown Churches, Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services Refugee Resettlement Office and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. 

We encourage any Church member or friend to be engaged in the various aspects of our Social Justice ministries. Though the above ministries plan and communicate their respective projects -- we consider all members of the congregation to be members of the Social Justice Committee and consciously design our projects to facilitate the involvement of a wide range of members and friends of all ages.
