Sun25Oct2020Celebrate UN SundayCatherine Rowlee, Lay Leader
Lily Popova, Music DirectorWorking in the Office of the Ombudsman for the United Nations Funds and Programmes often means being with International Civil Servants when they perceive incompatibilities between the aspirational values as described in the UN Charter, and the realities of working in hierarchical organizations with flawed humans. The work of the Office supports these colleagues through informal means as they navigate how to make decisions in this context. Tamar Gur will share about how she came to work in the United Nations, the work that she has been doing for the past couple of years, and how working in the United Nations has helped her grow as a conflict resolution practitioner.
Sun01Nov2020The Dark Time of the year us upon us, and we invite you to join in exploring its beauty and significance with Dr. Margaret (Maggie) Froelich as she speaks to us on "Embracing the Dark."Maggie has been a polytheist and a Pagan for two decades. She was a regular face at MVUUC CUUPs for eight years, while she worked on a PhD in New Testament and Christian Origins at the Claremont School of Theology. She's a druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, and she writes academic research (which has been published) and fiction (which hasn't yet).Maggie brings a unique and clear-eyed perspective on these challenging but potentially meaningful times.
Our shared experience of life in these most unusual days has us doing all that we can to safely bring a post-election outcome filled with positive change.
We are more than ready to turn the tide.
As we gather this week, we’ll reflect on our sure-footed path through the times ahead of us. Together, we are stronger, more passionate peacemakers.
