This week at uuworld.org: Church on Wednesday.
Tom Stites writes that many congregations are gathering in the middle of the week for worship, dinner, and other programs. Concentrated midweek programming offers "stronger connections and deeper religious lives for members and friends; greater ease for new people in finding their place; and a respite for people with busy lives."
In the news, Jane Greer reports that Star Island, the UU-affiliated summer conference center off the coast of New Hampshire, has reopened after a monthlong closure by the fire marshal. Star Island lost approximately $1 million in revenues while closed. Don Skinner begins a series of articles about the UUA's Gulf Coast congregations as the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches; in the first story, he reports on the Community Church of New Orleans, which has moved back into its old neighborhood, meeting in a house next to its ruined church. And Sonja Cohen rounds up a week's worth of Unitarian Universalists in the media.
