Testimony to Pledge to FUUSE – Jim Webber

Due to popular demand, Jim Webber, put his FUUSE testimonial in written word for you!!

Pledge Testimonial by Jim Webber on March 5, 2017

Title: FUUSE Is Well-Being

In the UU tradition, spiritual growth is an individual matter. To me, spiritual growth can be framed by the notion of well-being, as described by Dr. Daniel Siegel. In his work in interpersonal neurobiology, he sees well-being as made up of 1) emphatic relationships, 2) a healthy mind and 3) an integrated brain. Viewing things this way our church can be seen as a well-being enabler, one that leads to spiritual growth and feeling part of something larger than ourselves. Let me take the three dimensions of well-being and relate it to the FUUSE experience.

The Elm and the Children

In 2016 we planted and transplanted an Elm in front of 10 Elm Street.

The Elm and the Children
You may have noticed last year that we planted a little Elm tree in the yard.  And you might have noticed that over the summer, it moved.  I wanted to tell you the story behind the wandering Elm because I think it tells us some important things about community.

Letter from Rev. Kendra to Gov. Maggie Hassan

Letter19 November 2015

Dear Gov. Hassan –

    I am grateful for all the work you do on behalf of our state and appreciate your willingness to work through conflict.

     Today I write to you to ask you to reconsider your public statement that New Hampshire will not accept Syrian Refugees.  I ask you to reconsider on two merits; the first is legal and the second is humanitarian.
