If you haven't received the issue already as an attachment .pdf file and
would like to, send a preferred email address to _UUCFOffice at aol.com_
(mailto:UUCFOffice at aol.com) . We are also preparing to do more special email
correspondence with members, so make sure we have the email address of your
choice. Please feel free to pass this issue on to others who you think would
find it, and our movement, of interest. You can of course print off the issue
from the website for ease of your reading.
We apologize for being a little late with this particular issue, one of our
two annual online issues (the other is the post-GA summer issue). We are
in between Good News Editors. But we are already at work on the Easter Good
News issue and you will also receive it later this month. You can get it
sooner than those who receive it through the mail by opting to receive all
our Good News issues online, and saving the UUCF some much needed money in
the process, and helping the environment.
We also are seeking special Easter reflections, news from UUCF related
small groups, prayers, favorite Easter sermons, and especially testimonials, as
in this issue, of "Why I Am A UU Christian" or "Why I am A Member of the
UUCF." Send those contributions, along with any pertinent reviews of new
books, movies, music, to me at _executivedirector at uuchristian.org_
tor at uuchristian.org) . Finally, if you are interested in applying for the
Good News Editorship, or being on the Editorial Team, also let us know.
The website has recently been updated with much new content, and will be
adding new to it throughout Lent. Go especially to the Virtual Monastery
section for weekly prayer and scripture reflections and meditations. If you
would like to contribute to this section, let me know. All the weekly
materials are archived and accessible at the site, as well as previous issues of
the Good News.
We have a special Lenten/Easter resource packet for sale for $15 which can
ordered through the UUCF Bookstore online.
And while you are on the website, on the home page, you can easily give
back to our movement through clicking on the Join, Renew, Donate link. We are
publishing a special issue of the UU Christian Journal this Spring,
celebrating 25 years of editorship by the Rev. Tom Wintle. It will only go out
free to those whose memberships are current, paid during the previous year.
Make sure you are one of those. If you have doubts about your membership
renewal date, contact _UUCFOffice at aol.com_
Blessings of this season, to you and all of yours,
Rev. Ron Robinson
Executive Director, UUCF
