This week at uuworld.org: Kate Braestrup, Assoc Sunday.
An excerpt from Kate Braestrup's memoir, Here If You Need Me, tells the story of how the Unitarian Universalist chaplain ministered to the brother of a woman who killed herself in the Maine woods. Don Skinner profiled Braestrup's wilderness chaplaincy back in 2005.
In the news, Don Skinner reports that Unitarian Universalists have given $1.1 million to growth initiatives through the UUA's "Association Sunday" fundraising effort. Sonja Cohen, meanwhile, tracks Unitarian Universalists in the media.
And in case you missed them while I was on vacation, check out these uuworld.org stories from the past two weeks: Robert Fulghum relates how humor has helped him bridge the cultural divide in Crete, his home away from home. Jane Greer profiles an Illinois congregation that recycled its old church. Don Skinner profiles George Tyger, a UU minister who left parish ministry to become an Army chaplain. And Don also reports on diverse and sometimes unusual musical ensembles in UU congregations.
