SPEAKING OF ‘LOVE’
REV. BRUCE BODE
“Love” is, indeed, “a many splendored thing” … particularly in the English language where it is used as an umbrella word to cover our positive feelings towards everything from our links to inanimate objects to our most intimate human relationships. This sermon will attempt to distinguish some of our different types of love, with a special look, on this Sunday prior to Valentine’s Day, at “romantic love.”
Bruce A. Bode, a native of Lynden, Washington, is in his fourteenth and final year as the minister of the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend, Washington. He and his congregation have been faithful supporters of PUUF since its inception. An incidental note: he and Flossie Bode are grandparents to two-year old Clara Grace Bode-Lang, "one of this planet’s loveliest creatures," according to her devoted grandfather.

THE MOST IMPORTANT INTENTION
Many of us cobbled together a list of inspiring-sounding intentions to encourage ourselves as we prepared to welcome the New Year. But did we all remember to include the most important intention of all?
Matt Aspin is Candidate Minister presently serving Tahoma UU Congregation and Vashon Island Unitarian Fellowship. He finds joy in promoting the ideals of our liberal faith tradition to the wider world.
There is a new Citizens' Climate Lobby group that meets in Belfair on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Contact Marti [firstname.lastname@example.org]
if you wish to be added to their mailing list.
Our next Family Kitchen is December 29. We join together with members from Kitsap UU Fellowship and First Lutheran Community Church to provide a meal to people who have difficulty stretching their food budget to the end of the month. We prepare, serve, and clean up after the meal, which is at the First Lutheran Church on Mitchell Avenue in Port Orchard. If you would like to donate some time to help with this social justice contact Sally Murphy [KUUF] who coordinates volunteers for the last Friday of each month: Salmurf@ix.netcom.com
