FORUM: "Iceberg Model"
The Welcoming Congregation Committee is helping our congregation to become welcoming and whole.
We are using the "Iceberg Model” as discussed in Module 5 of the Transforming Hearts series; however, watching that module is not a prerequisite for our discussion. We invite everyone (that means YOU!) to join us Sunday, January 24, following the service. For more information, contact Barbara, firstname.lastname@example.org.
UU Studio City Men’s Fellowship
7:00 - 8:30 PM
Two short videos will lead in. One is brief and absolutely hilarious! The second is colorfully animated and explains the Habit Pattern 3 Stage Loop (Cue, Routine, Reward and…back to Cue) To grab more plain M&M’s, in Frank's case.
We will then share our respective experiences with habits.
- New Pandemic habits we have developed
- Old habits
- Habits we have broken
- Habits we’d like to break
- Good habits were trying to adopt
- Habits that annoy friends and loved ones
- Habits that irritate you
- Social Media (post/like/share/comment) - has it become a habit?
Make The Men's Fellowship meetings one of your good habits for the New Year.

UUCSC Women's Book Discussion Group
You’re invited to join in the fascinating book discussion this coming month.
According to Goodreads, “I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.”
Nancy Holland will be serving as the discussion facilitator. Come and join us! For more information, contact Margery Pope, email@example.com
Please mark your calendars. There will be an important Congregational Meeting on Sunday, February 21. Here are the proposed agenda items:
- October Congregational Meeting minutes approval

- Financial Update; Endowment Committee Update
- Bylaws Update
- Welcoming Congregation Committee Presentation
- New Policies Task Force Update
Please plan to attend this meeting. Be informed. Express your opinion.

Gun Violence Prevention Promise Seeking New Direction
For some time now, our group, Gun Violence Prevention Promise, has been looking for new directions for our work, a search heightened with the passing of Dorothy Wait, the founder and inspiration behind GVPP, and now significantly intensified by the events of January 6 in Washington, DC.
We seek to embrace the “8th Principle,” knowing it has to do with putting words to deeds. We realize that this might well be the much-needed localized focus we have been seeking that would give our congregation a greater voice in curbing gun violence.
And so we look forward to participating in the effort to respond to the 8th Principle as laid out during the worship service on January 10. We welcome any calls to provide information and witness where applicable during the coming months. For more information, contact Gil Shorr, email@example.com.
