We Are a Welcoming Congregation
Services are on alternate Sundays at 10 AM
January 11: Rev. Suzanne Wasilczuk The Profit of Prophets Our second Source tells us we draw our Living Tradition from “words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.” This month, as we remember the work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we review some of those ancient prophets and their messages. And we ask, who are our current-day prophets?
January 25: Betsy Schussler What if Dr. Jekyll Had Met the Buddha?
Adult R.E.: Adult RE is on alternate Sundays at 10 AM.
Men's Group: The Men's Group will meet Tuesday, January 6, at 6 PM, at the Fellowship. Please bring a dish to pass and your beverage of choice. Bob Hanson will host the meeting. All men in the Fellowship are welcome.
Arts in Our Community: The Boulder Junction Library now has rotating art exhibits. If you'd be interested in showing your work for 2-3 months at a time, visit www.boulderjunction.wislib.org. for more details and an application.

President's Message - - - Dec. 29, 2014
Now that winter has finally and officially arrived, and the daylight hours are increasing instead of shrinking, I feel a new tiny bit of optimism about getting through the chilly days ahead. I find the winter days a good time to read, to be with family for sharing love, to gather friends for sharing thoughts, to share some music with fellow musicians, to reflect upon where I am in life and upon whom I choose to share it with. Our Fellowship has become a larger and larger part of that final category.
I often ponder over just why I find our Fellowship so satisfying, and the coming of the new year seems a good time to do even more such thinking. Even if I never find the actual reasons for my satisfaction with my membership here, perhaps I should just find new and more ways to enjoy what I already have, a group of similar-thinking, accepting friends. Thank you all for being who you are and know that I wish you all the best possible new year you can imagine! Bob
