Rev. Lisa Bovee-Kemper
Rev. Bovee-Kemper is the associate minister of the UU Congregation of Asheville, NC. She will assist in the workshop on end-of-life issues which will follow the service. When we reach the end of our lives, deep emotions and physical suffering can combine to create a difficult time for both individuals and families. No matter what our age, talking about it and making plans can be an important process in our spiritual lives.

Love Beyond Belief
What Does It Mean to Be a Friend of the Church?
One of the advantages that comes with being a Friend or Member of the church is access to the Members-and-Friends-only section of the website, where you can see the pictorial directory, birthday lists, and joys and concerns, among other items of interest.
FRIENDS ARE DEFINED BY THEIR:
___ ATTENDANCE at 3 Sunday services prior to their decision to become
___ COMMITMENT to active involvement in church life
___ AGREE to be canvassed during our annual pledge campaign
___ DESIRE to be listed in the UUCS directory (optional) and receive the Happenings (optional)
We also would encourage Friends to support our church during the year with their time, talents, and treasures.
If you have checked off the first three of the above criteria, we welcome you and celebrate your desire to be part of our community as a FRIEND.

This Week at UUCS
Wednesday, March 12, 6:30 Vespers, Thoughtful Discussion
Wednesday, March 12, 6:30 Humanist Social Time, 7:00, Humanist Meeting
Unfortunately, because of the weather, we had to postpone the February Humanist group program until Wednesday, March 12 (in the UUCS Fellowship Hall.) Although we’re a month late, we can still celebrate Charles Darwin’s 205th birthday and “the best idea that anyone has ever had”: The Theory of Evolution. First we will watch a 22-minute TED Talk by Richard Dawkins, “On Our Queer Universe.” Then, Greg R., a former school principal, will discuss his experiences with students, parents, teachers, and superintendents when the controversies about the teaching of Evolution swirled around the Colorado schools. Come at 6:30 p.m. to socialize and at 7:00 p.m. for the meeting. Hope to see you there.
Wednesday, March 12, 7:00-8:15, UUCS-101
A new way to learn more about UUCS and how to get the most out of your church experience. Great for newcomers or “long-timers” who are ready to dive in! Each session is offered twice to accommodate schedule. This month we have: Introduction to UUCS Groups (Humanist, Christian, LFD, etc.).
Thursday, March 13, 9:30, POLOs Meeting
Calling Parents of Little Ones! A new group (POLOs) is meeting twice a month at UUCS to give parents and little ones some social time together. Please bring a small breakfast-y snack to share (like fruit, pastry, etc). Meetings are on second and fourth Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in the nursery. See Tracy S. for more information: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
