Twinkle and friends are taking part in this fun wellness dance/exercise class led by the amazing Darcy Rollins! Monday evenings at 6:00PM January 27th-March 16th, 2020. Join us and attend as many sessions as you can. Twinkle will host refreshments are her place afterwords for each week except for January 27th, and March 9th as she will be in Florida and California on those dates (respectively).
As we approach the close of one decade and open into the next, let us consider what it means to be called into covenant with one another, let us consider what our beloved communities are called to be for one another.
In less than five minutes Sofia Avery-Kapulski delivers her “Euphorically Dumbfounded” homily (which is really better titled a micro-sermon with maximum impact) in which she confronts, delineates, summarizes and wholly determinizes existentially the very things that confound humanity. She speaks concisely and articulately of necessary and possibly immanent new cosmos, multiverses, symbiotic interconnectivity, numerical concepts and incomprehensible theories of time and matter and life and death. She declares boldly, “I don’t believe in ‘God.’ But I believe that entropy is coming for the universe with everything in it and that this universe will die and no mind will be active to even recall what happened.”
“Some good news to share. The Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is pleased to announce its unanimous nomination of the Rev. Meg Riley and Charles Du Mond for election as the next co-moderators of the UUA, at the special election to be held at General Assembly (GA) 2020, in Providence, RI. If elected, they will serve in this position for a term beginning at the conclusion of GA 2020 and ending at the conclusion of GA 2025.”
Meg is my Senior Minister where I am an affiliate community minister at the Church of the Larger Fellowship. She announced her retirement a few weeks ago. She will be missed at CLF. I am deeply grateful personally and for our UU world to see her nominated as co-Moderator.
Be sure to check the calendar of events at Twinkle’s Place as well as at Moosehead Lake Retreats for enrollment information about scheduled retreats. We are also able to custom-design retreats to meet your group’s specific needs. (Spiritual, Wellness, Nature, Womens, Couples, Artists and Writers retreats and more!).

Thought for Contemplation: “When we serve we become more compassionate, more sensitive, more understanding, and more aware. When we serve we experience what love can do.” ~ Rev. Peter Morales
