Dear Members, Friends, and Visitors – Greetings! I hope each of you had a great summer no matter where you spent it – on or off Island!
One of the things I most like about St. Croix is our sub tropical climate and the eastern trade winds that produces year round summer temperatures. And while Hurricane Season (July to November) can be a little distracting, a more welcome distraction is the start of the Fellowship year that begins the second Sunday in September to May. The Program Committee has once again worked its magic to identify top notch community members that represent critical issues.
As you know, beginning in September, the second and fourth Sunday of each month the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship holds its worship services and features guest speakers’ that talk about key issues. As the minister I bring you homilies (short sermon talks) covering a range of topics. The first and third Sundays Covenant Group, facilitated by Gail Nealon, hosts interesting and thought provoking conversations.
Much like many state siders that have to set their clocks for time changes I invite you to adjust your schedules and activities to accommodate Fellowship services and Covenant Group at 10 A.M. on Sundays. We want to see your face in the place so we can welcome you back as we continue to build a community of individuals making a difference on our beautiful Island of St. Croix.
Don’t forget your water. This year the emphasis is on the importance and significance of water as a spiritual and justice issue. We will have extra water for those that need it!
Warmest Regards, Rev. Qiyamah
