Come in, from the crisp morning air outside,
come in, wearing the autumn sunlight on your face,
come, carrying the turning of the seasons in your heart.
Whatever and however the greatness of life is speaking to you now,
you are welcome here in our circle of friends.
With these words from the Rev. Sarah Gettie McNeill, I’d like to welcome you to this issue of the MidAmerica Messenger. Here you’ll find the latest information on our Chalice Lighters program, including a brand new opportunity to support another of our congregations through Faithify. You’ll also hear from a UU youth who had a transformative time this summer at our Youth Midwest Leadership School. There’s also an invitation for your congregation to join others across the country in Conversations for Liberation, a reminder to visit our wonderful UUA bookstore, and more!
