After two years of conversation (ok, it was a very slow conversation) and feedback, we are pleased to share ERUUF’s new covenant. Many thanks to Paul Baerman who took all our notes and ideas and shaped them into a brief, simple statement that highlights what’s most important.
This is a living document, created from our values and shared commitments. Groups, teams and committees are encouraged to use this to share the spirit that informs their work. And we’ll use it in services and on special occasions, and we’ll check in on it in the future to see what updates might be right at that time.

With Winter seeming unable to make up its mind whether to stay or go, it is heartening to see all the signs of new life around ERUUF’s campus. With all that is new comes preparation for the 2018/2019 fiscal year. Our Pledge Campaign team has done an incredible job, haven’t they? Kudos to Clint McSherry and Rose Auman, and THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged their support of ERUUF. Now it is time to create a budget from the results of this campaign.

The Black Lives Matter banner at the UU congregation in Winston-Salem has been stolen several times now. So often, in fact, that my intrepid colleague, Rev. Lisa Schwartz, bought a spare the last time she re-ordered.

Trauma and New Life
by Reverend Deborah Cayer, Lead Minister
Emma Gonzalez. A tiny young woman who arrested our attention with the way she held space for grief and outrage not with words, but 6 ½ minutes of silence, the amount of time it took a gunman to kill 17 of her classmates and friends. She could have spoken, and it would have been a significant moment. Instead, her presence, raw courage, and commitment traveled around the world. With no words, at a time when it seems that the NRA has bought the compliant silence of the majority of our national politicians, she called on each of us to make change.
