Help care for BUUF’s Buildings and Grounds
It looks like the weather will be with us this coming Saturday for the Spring Work Day at BUUF! Unless Ray is wrong, and it’s pouring rain, we’ll meet at 9am in the BUUF parking lot, and continue until about noon. Rain date is May 23rd.
Our top priority is to put down black plastic over the area where the pine trees stood, but there will be several other things you can do – from digging, to lightweight weeding to washing windows. Work boots and gloves recommended, garden tools requested. Does anyone have a wheelbarrow they could bring? Come and spend a day outdoors and reconnect with folks at BUUF! If you have any questions please contact Dottie Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-293-3672.
If we get enough volunteers, we will also sell coffee, lemonade and light refreshments to raise money for the Fellowship.
Rain date May 8th.
Email Phoebe Pollitt at email@example.com to reserve a table or volunteer for the Fellowship table and/or refreshment table.
If we don't "rent" at least 5 tables by April 24th, we will cancel this event.
Sunday Service Notes: Elizabeth Davies, Voice Teacher, On Political COnversations - February 14, 2021
In her presentation, “How to Have Better Political Conversations: Lessons From A Voice Teacher," Chorus director Elizabeth Davies led a fascinating discussion on how her training as a voice teacher has led her to helping others have effective and civil discussions on politics. Voice teachers, Elizabeth contends, are like political activists and change-agents, seeking to persuade others to discard habits and beliefs that may have been ingrained over a lifetime. She offered a voice teacher’s perspective on how to create a safe space for change.
