As a person who lives in the Northeast, I look forward to Spring’s arrival. I start to get excited to put my hands in the dirt of the gardens, get seeds in the ground and cleaning the yard up. I think about what seeds I want to grow in my personal life, businesses, and in all areas of my life. That includes in CUUPS too. I look at the projects we have going on, and what is needed to grow and ground them so they flourish.
One of the seeds we planted in CUUPS is the we proudly renewed CUUPS as a covenanting community
with the UUA. A covenanting community supports people create new ways of expressing their UU faith and values while being connected to the larger UU family. It gives the earth-centered the opportunity to bridge our spirituality with our UU values and principles within our congregations. You, our members and chapters are integral to this by educating about the earth-centered traditions, thinking, and celebrations.
One thing we are realizing is that when seeds are planted, one gets to see beautiful flowers, fruits, or wonderful vegetables. We would love to see and hear what your chapters and congregations are doing that honor earth centered thinking! We are inviting you to send pictures and info
about what you chapters and congregations are up to that we can publish.
May this Spring bring all of you fresh thinking, a renewed spirit, and beautiful rays of sunshine! Many Blessings!
Jerrie Hildebrand, President
