This Week at UBC

Updated every Monday

Hello Friends: 

 

Many of us awoke this morning to more news of trauma in our community. North of Minneapolis, a man was run over by a neighbor in an apparent anti LGBTQ hate crime.  A few hours later another driver drove through a protest vigil in Uptown killing one and injuring three.  Trauma building on trauma, sadness on sadness, anger on anger. As the prophet Habakkuk wondered, “How Long?”  Thoughts and prayers need to move toward peace, justice, accountability, and safety for everyone. 

 

Thanks to all who attended the annual meeting on Sunday. We celebrated a momentous year, passed a budget and elected a slate of officers. 

 

If you have not done so already, please sign up for a survey of congregation members and friends involved in the Alliance of Baptists initiative of Thriving Anti-Racist Congregations. Here's the link to that survey. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeEo7vSE9BXDnnj5babJjuaYDyIESsLC6itbRVXg5gQvm3NfQ/viewform It takes less than a minute to sign up.  Those who sign up will get a more thorough survey in the fall.
