Clown’s Travel Log - Chapter 2: How to Avoid Being Attacked by Wild, Little Girls when Travelling in Africa. Jonathon’s humanitarian work in West Africa is first and foremost about listening to women.

Today we celebrate our annual UN Sunday with, as guest speaker, a young woman from Washington DC who is studying at McGill University. Audrey is also an intern at the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office in New York City. We have flown the UN flag in our sanctuary for many years, honoring the mutual goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all, which is also the 6th principle of Unitarian Universalism.
Note: today we return to Eastern Standard time. Fall back or you'll be early to church!
Another annual tradition at UUEstrie, where we support Amnesty International by writing letters in support of those who have been unjustly incarcerated, usually simply because of their political beliefs. A special collection will be taken to cover postage for the letters we choose to send.
