September 8. The UUG Book Club's September book
choice is a 1927 novel
by Willa Cather, Death Comes for the Archbishop. It concerns the
attempts of a Catholic bishop and a priest to establish a
diocese in New Mexico
Territory. The novel was included in Life Magazine's list
of the 100 outstanding books of 1924-1944. It was also included on
Time?s 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005 and Modern
Library's list of the top 100 English-language novels of the 20th
century. The book club meets at 6:30 in the sanctuary, and new
people are always welcome.
The WomenSpirit Circle will hold a regular meeting at
10am on June 4 and then will take a summer break until the first
Saturday in October.
In our August 21 service we will have a Blessing
of the Backpacks. Bring your children and their friends, with
their backpacks. We will bless them as they go back to school. Also
bring new backpacks and school supplies, which will be blessed and
donated to SCCAP's Back to School Project. And come early to
decorate our sidewalks with chalk!
