PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE— Why Do You Come to UU?
It’s the Asking-for-Money season again — no one’s favorite, I think I can say with a fair chance of accuracy. But, like many institutions lucky enough to have the legacy of a building to meet in, and the means to hire good people to attend to the needs and the spiritual goals of those gathered there, it’s an inevitable time of each year.
