Supporting the JourneyWe are all on a journey these days. Some of us are working our way through our working lives, family lives, personal lives, and/or our retirement lives. But the thing we have in common on this journey is our connection with the Unitarian Church of Edmonton. That connection means that we do not need to travel our journey alone. We can come together in this church and see how others are handling their journey and get comfort, inspiration, and support for our own journeys.
But not all journeys are easy. When we look at the news we see the caravan on their journey from Honduras full of people forced from their homes by economic desperation. Closer to home is the family of refugees from Syria; sponsored by Edmonton Unitarians as they fled from their damaged country. How would you react to having your home shot up? Where would you go? Who would take you in on a journey to the unknown?
The Unitarian Church of Edmonton has provided support for refugee families and people at risk for years. Whether it is the direct sponsorship of refugees from abroad, LGTBQ rights, support for local charities, providing food for those in need, or participation in social action to make the world a fairer place, UCE supports the journeys of both our members and the wider community. That journey is worth supporting.
Please support our journey and pledge to the work of your church.
Over the next few months I am going to share thoughts of how find truth in our community and within our church. I'll do that through newsletter articles, talks in church, with this small web site, and through emails and letters that I will send to our donor members and friends.
Canvass time is when you, the members and friends of the church, tell us what your financial intentions are for the coming year. We need to gather your intentions of support so that we can prepare our annual budgets. Between now and the end of March I will be asking all members (and interested friends) to provide a pledge of financial support which we will use to prepare our budget in the spring.
On this little web site you will find a number of helpful explanations that I don't have space to include elsewhere. It is also where you can find the online pledge form, information on how to set up preauthorized deposits, and information on the two on-line payment sites we have set up so that you can pay your pledge.
I also try and post the letters and articles that I use in the canvass here so that you can see what I have sent to people over the course of the campaign.
So please fill out your pledge before the end of March 2019.
