Non Violent Communication(NVC) – Overview
Monthly Theme for February: Goal of World Community
10:00 a.m. Common Ground: Matt Pargeter-Villarreal – “In today’s post-election world, the goal of world community can seem almost an unattainable reality to imagine in our society. Yet, it is through speaking out (advocating for a better and just world) as our UU values have always called us to do, that we can find the secret to world community.” Matt is a second year Master of Divinity student, concentrating on Sexual and Gender Justice, at Brite Divinity School. He is also currently in Aspirancy for Ministerial Fellowship with the UUA. He and his husband, Fernando, attend Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church in Carrollton, Texas.
10:15 a.m. Children’s RE: Finish Freedom Quilts
11:00 a.m Coffee & Conversation
The Other Wes Moore The Harried Reasoners, along with all Pathways Common Readers, will begin the discussion of The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. This book was published several years ago so it can be bought in paper back, from used book sources and probably available from your public library. Additionally, there will be several copies to be lent out on Sunday. We hope that as many as possible will have the time to read it so that much of our discussion will be based on new learnings.
Heartfelt thanks goes out to Sue Mundell for her 8 years of service with the Village People Team.

On My Path
The Quarterly Outreach Recipient for January, February, and March is Camp Quest Texas (a 501-C-3) where our own Marissa Broome worked as a camp counselor last summer..
The original Camp Quest was first held in 1996, the idea originating with Edwin Kagin. From 1996 until 2002 Camp Quest was operated by the Free Inquiry Group, Inc. (FIG) of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Since that time it has been operated by Camp Quest, Inc., an independent 501(c)(3) educational non-profit.
Camp Quest Texas was founded in August of 2009 with the first Camp Quest Texas day camp. It was expanded to a weeklong residential camp in the summer of 2010, and continues this year!
The purpose of Camp Quest is to provide children of freethinking parents a residential summer camp dedicated to improving the human condition through rational inquiry, critical and creative thinking, scientific method, self-respect, ethics, competency, democracy, free speech, and the separation of religion and government guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
NEED – North East Emergency Distribution
NEED is a community supported, non-profit agency whose primary mission is to provide short-term emergency assistance of food, clothing, and financial support to families in our church neighborhood who are in transition to SNAP (formerly food stamps) or other governmental support.
