Fourth Sunday Lunch Celebration in September 2016

2016Okland-RevLevente&EvaKeleman

Rev. Levente & Eva Keleman

Unitarians in Romania celebrate the last Sunday in September with a Thanksgiving Communion, one of four annual communion Sundays. UUFA will once again hold its own celebration with a Fourth Sunday Lunch, featuring our version of delicious Transylvanian fare. Mark your calendars and plan to join us Sunday, September!

Partner Church was the Cause of the Month in October 2016

Over the years, UUFA has supported the congregation and its missions in a variety of ways, including establishing a bakery and a dairy, repairing and maintaining buildings, and supporting high school students. In 2015, our Share the Plate contributions will go towards providing stipends for two of those students who are now attending the Unitarian seminary. We also want to help with repairing the church’s ancient van and with defraying the expenses of a hoped-for visit from the minister and his wife in February, 2016.

Sacred Order-Sacred Chaos: Creation and re-creation occur when we embrace the tension between order and chaos. At the border of order and chaos, humans experience meaning and encounter the sacred. Join former Catholic priest Tim McCluskey in exploring these ideas. With Lay Minister Karen Solheim.
