Coalition meeting March 25, 9 am, Savannah Police Central Precinct, 1710 MLK Blvd.
The Chatham County Housing Coalition is a group of non-profit-, public-, and corporate organizations that advocates for good quality affordable housing. Its three broad strategies are: 1. Retain, improve, and develop housing; 2. Increase local housing investments; and 3. Adopt supportive policies. Here's the Coalition flyer with more info.
Although Savannah is widely known for its elegant public and private buildings, forty-four percent of Savannah households cannot afford good quality housing. Are there ways UUCSavannah can help the Coalition reach its goals? Please come to the next Coalition meeting to explore the possibilities.
We are well into our 8th month in this 12-month cycle and pledges are at 74%. Thank you for your support and keep those pledges coming in!
As of Jan 31, our finances are in a positive upturn. We have a surplus, and if this trend holds, we will have funds at the end of the year to contribute to the reserve account.
Income: $141,750 - Expense: $116,348 = Net Income: $25,402
Other items of interest:
Discretionary monies were moved to savings when Rev Dave left. We have opened a new account for Rev Susan so that she can financially assist persons struggling to meet basic needs.
We suspended third Sunday charity collections for just this year. Cash flow was too tight last year, so in addition to a lean budget we felt the need to focus inward and build reserves. We are accomplishing this objective and have every intention of instating third Sunday collections next year.
I supply monthly financials to the board and hope to post them to the church website in a timelier manner. As always if you can’t wait, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy.
Lastly, in the next few months the finance team and I will be working on the budget and planning a budget round table meeting to gather congregation input. As you may know the finance team is comprised of 8 amazing church members. If you would like to join us let me know.
A New Starting Point Series Begins March 14
Saturdays, March 14, 21 and 28 in Rahn Hall, 2:00 to 4:00. For more information or to register, contact Linda Archinaco at 843-422-0387 or email@example.com.
Are you new to Unitarian Universalism, or have you been here awhile and would like to deepen your connection and understanding? Join us in the Starting Point workshops!
They offer a rich, small-group format where newcomers as well as current members have a chance to connect and experience what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. More than just a conversation, each session is built around deep listening, spiritual reflection and journeying together. They provide an opportunity to consider your own spiritual path, our congregation's history and future, and the changing role of UU in today's world.
Explore! Engage! Connect!
The spiritual path is not a solo endeavor. In fact, the very notion of a self who is trying to free him/herself is a delusion. We are in it together and the company of spiritual friends helps us realize our connectedness. - Tara Brach
Covenant Groups - Soul Matters
Meeting once a month in conversation around our monthly worship theme, Covenant Groups share experience and reflect together. Use the link above or talk to Linda Archinaco firstname.lastname@example.org or Rev Susan email@example.com to get more details.
The folks who're part of one are deepening and broadening their journey. You will, too.
This is from the intro to Resilience:When did we decide that resilience was a solo project? It's not that we consciously defined it that way. It's just what we were taught, from the time we were little until, well, today. The same thing was - and is - said in so many ways: "Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps"; "You're stronger than you think."; "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.”; “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” The cultural message is clear: resilience depends on you - your individual toughness and inner strength. It’s a solo act.

Another Way to Painlessly Support UUCS
Did you know that when you shop via Amazon that there are two ways to support the church?
Amazon account holders can choose to use Amazon Smile to designate the "Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah" as the recipient of a small portion of each purchase (remember to save an Amazon Smile bookmark (smile.amazon.com)). You can also simply link through to Amazon via the text at the top of the right column on our website home page and when you order UUCS then also receives a small portion.
