    The Ministers & Musicians
    The popular, annual service dedicated to regular yet notable people who died in the last year. We’ll celebrate some of the people whose lives touched ours, even if we never knew their names. Inventors, activists, scientists and more… come for good music and good stories; leave with a spring in your step.
    Music: Spare Parts, with Vance Bass, Jayson Capps, Tania Hopkins, Keith Morris, Chris Paul, Susan Peck

    Livestream at 9:00 am on Zoom

    February 5, 2023

    Our Rainbow Principles curriculum for 2022–23 will begin September 11 and we’ll start with learning about our chalice. The second and third week we’ll learn about covenant and create our own together. Children will have the opportunity to create their own chalice each week in September.
    Class starts at 10:00 am. Each 45-minute class will begin with a song led by one of our UU musicians, and then a chalice lighting and check-in: the Roses and Thorns that are our children’s Joys and Concerns. We’ll read a story together and talk about its meaning. Then we play. A variety of activities are available for children to choose from, and volunteer RE leaders and assistants companion the children, talking, playing, and building relationship. We end at 10:45 so that volunteers and families have the time to go to the service together or get settled on our playground.
    Each month, we’ll explore how we live another Unitarian Universalist Principle together. In October, we’ll explore the first Rainbow Principle: Respect the worth and dignity of each person. I hope that you will join our community!

    Earth Web Monthly Meeting


    February 12, 2023

    First Unitarian’s environmental team, Earth Web, meets on the second Sunday of each month at 12:15 pm, both on campus and on Zoom, and all are welcome to attend. This year we plan to focus on water issues, looking at both personal and congregational ways to use our scarce resource responsibly. We will offer opportunities to educate and celebrate around this issue. We will also engage in legislative action on conservation, environmental, and water issues. Please consider visiting the NM State Engineer’s website, www.505outside.com, for information on xeriscaping. Contact Marilyn O’Boyle at marilynlea@aol.com if you would like more information about getting involved!
