Linda Metzner & Friends

Phil Fryberger was a founder and enthusiastic supporter of the UUCSV since 2004, when the church was

"Let Us Reflect"
Rev. Michael J S Carter
October 4, 2022, marked the Jewish Holiday of Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement & Repentance. It began the evening of Tuesday, October 4th, and ended the evening of Wednesday, October 5th. It is a wonderful holiday in my mind, albeit a solemn one. It is the holiest day of the Hebrew Calendar. It is a time for purification. It is a time for reflection on the past year. It is a time to reflect upon the content of our life journey, our triumphs and challenges, those family, friends and
others who have touched our lives and have died or moved on. It is also a time to reflect on those instances where we as individuals have not been the people we like to think we are. It is a time of repentance. Let's explore the benefits of repenting.

Books For Good - Project Coordinator Needed
Books for Good is a non-profit used bookstore in Fletcher, NC. Here’s how it works: When people donate gently used books, they can specify one of over a hundred non-profit groups (including UUCSV). Proceeds from the sale of the books goes to the designated group. UUCSV has earned well over a thousand dollars over the last several years. They do not take Readers Digest condensed books, magazines or periodicals, cookbooks, library books or damaged books. 
I have been doing most of the leg work since UUCSV became involved with Books For Good and it is time for me to take a break. For a book lover this is a perfect way to help the church. For more information please, please, please call me at 828-275-8453.
