Bringing Our Best Selves
Synchronicity is a beautiful concept fleshed out by Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. Jung studied the meaning behind experiences that could not be rationally explained. Synchronicity can be defined as meaningful coincidences but synchronicity is, above all else, about connections. How can we embody integrity through exploring the ineffable?

Notes from A Board and your Personnel Committee
Dorothy Holmes, Chair
Greetings to all of you from the Personnel Committee (PC). We write to inform you about us – who we are and what we do for our beloved church. We are: Dorothy Holmes (Chair), Nancy Arteberry, and Judy Saucerman. The PC is duly constituted as delineated in the UUCS Personnel Policy. Accordingly, we, the members of the PC, are the Board’s agents delegated to implement the Board’s role as Employer. This arrangement ensues from the fact that we do not have a settled or interim minister. Ministers appointed in either of those capacities have typically functioned as “Programming Chief” for the church, defined as minister head of staff. The terms of our current half time contract minister intentionally exclude that role.
In our role as employer, the PC is in the process of working to establish a supportive, facilitating and encouraging relationship between the PC and the paid staff members of the church with the exception of our contract minister who reports to the Board as a whole. We seek to:
- promote a productive and satisfying work environment for staff;
- address any concerns any staff member may have in order to enhance their work performance and work satisfaction;
- resolve any work difficulties at an early point in their development, so that they do not become disruptive or irremediable;
- oversee/supervise staff members to ensure timely, reliable, and efficacious work performance and a high level of job satisfaction;
- liaise between staff and the Board as needed.
We ask for the support of the congregation in carrying out our duties. If you have any suggestions or concern to offer us that will help us be more effective in carrying out the above-identified functions, please feel free to contact anyone of us.
Prayerfully and hopefully submitted in the spirit of life,

What If We See Our Shadow?
You entered form to give a holy message.
An envoy from the inconceivable is each of us.
When you have completed that courageous task you will be able to return to a world that does not know sadness.
But so difficult your divine errand it will take a lifetime to accomplish; Love along the way. ~~ Hafiz

Inner City Night Shelter (every third Sunday)
Covenant Groups - Soul Matters
The folks who're part of one are deepening and broadening their journey. You will, too.
For instance, Jozef Bicerano says:
I enjoy participating in a covenant group both because it enables me to explore many aspects of faith and spirituality in greater depth within a non-judgmental and confidential small group setting and because it provides me the opportunity to get to know several members of the congregation very closely.

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.
