Reverend Linda Hart from Tacoma will join us in speaking about "Adapting". Change is inevitable. We can't stop it. What we can do is choose how to adapt. We'll explore choices and decisions and change.
After the service we will have our annual meeting. The main issue to be voted on will be continuation or dissolution. Watch for the letter from the board with more specifics.

“Women’s Work” Rev. Carol McKinley
The theme of the 2019 Women’s History Month is Visionary Women. This Sunday we will reflect on how women of vision and courage shave transformed traditional stereotypes and redefined women’s work in religion, politics, and business.
Welcome back - Hopefully the snow will be gone and we can all safely return for fellowship on Feb. 24.
From the Jewish tradition comes the phrase, tikkun olam, repairing the world. It reminds us that we as people of faith bear responsibility not only for our own moral, spiritual, and material well-being, but also for the well-being of society at large. What are some ways we as Unitarian Universalists can live into the calling to repair the world?
Our next fellowship meeting is January 13 at 4:00 pm with Bridget Laflin on the topic “Who are the People in your Neighborhood?” Dennis and Bonnie O'Hanlon are again providing the music. They do an awesome job of finding music that supports the topic of the day.

Promised Land is a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they've long been denied. In following their story, both in our regions shared heritage and in their modern struggles for federal recognition, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty
Special guest speaker and 4th generation grand-daughter of Chief Si'ahl, Mary Lou Slaughter, will share her story with the audience. She is also featured in the film.
Promised Land is produced and directed by Vasant and Sarah Salcedo, and sponsored by 4Culture and San Francisco Film Society. It has been chosen for the award for Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the 10th Annual LA Skins Fest, and was an official selection for the 41st Annual American Indian Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum's 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, and the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, among others.
