Tuesday evening we learned that Rev. Florence Caplow is leaving Washington State at the end of June. She has accepted a position as minister to a UU Congregation in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, which is near her 88 year old mother, who is needing Florence to be near-by.
Florence: “When I ordained as a Zen priest, nine years before I ordained as a UU minister, I made the vow that I would always go where I am most needed. That vow led me into UU ministry. That vow led me here, with all the hope in the world. And now it is leading me back to the person who raised me as a single mother, to help her at the most vulnerable time in her life. I can’t avoid that call and responsibility, as much as it hurts to leave and give up on my dreams here.”
While we are saddened by these events, she has indicated she will work with us until she leaves and has suggestions for helping to fill the gap here at PUUF. The Quimper UU Fellowship will also be undergoing a time of discernment as well.
Rev. Caplow’s last service with PUUF will be May 12 [Mothers' Day]. Please be sure to join us as we celebrate her service with PUUF and wish her good tidings on her next journey.

THE FACE OF HOMELESSNESS
Keeping high-school-age kids in school can be a challenge, but when those kids are homeless, the barriers to success may seem insurmountable. Nevertheless, CISP succeeds as often as it does by doing whatever it takes to eliminate barriers, and never giving up, on anyone. Come hear how CISP succeeds and what we can do to help.
Remember to set your clocks ahead Saturday before heading to bed so you don't miss our service on Sunday, March 12. We welcome back Rev. Bruce Bode, from Quimper UU Fellowship in Port Townsend.

THE REALM AND EXPERIENCE OF MYSTERY
“The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced,” writes Aart Van Der Leeuw. This sermon will address the question of what the “realm of mystery” is and isn’t, exploring the difference between “mystery” and “puzzle” and what this distinction means for how we live.
