Green Sanctuary Group
GREEN SANCTUARY, APRIL 2017
Green Sanctuary’s latest project, the “green” cleaning of the BUC Sanctuary rug and stairway rugs, as well as a number of Sanctuary chairs, has been completed, and we are pleased to have made it possible.
Our Group will sponsor an Earth Day Service on Sunday, April 23rd, titled “Is It Getting Warmer or Am I Imagining?” We hope this Service will inspire us and strengthen our resolve to support environmental science, which is under siege, and to work to protect our planet and our species.
The next Household Hazardous Waste collection will take place in the Pullman Area on Saturday, May 6th from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. We will accept hazardous household chemicals, oil-based paints and fluorescent light bulbs as well as computers and their accessories, textbooks, eyeglasses and large pieces of packing Styrofoam. No TV’s will be accepted. For more information contact Eileen Klees, 773-708-5111.
The Environmental Taskforce of the Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice has issued an Educational Information piece on the Pros and Cons of GMO Foods. You can pick up a copy of this informational piece from the table in the Castle lobby, or access it at the UUSJ Website: http://www.uusforsocialjustice.org/Environment.htm
Green Sanctuary’s Motion to become a subcommittee of the BUC Social Action Committee was approved at the November 2016 Congregational Meeting. We will no longer function as an affiliated group. We will however, continue to sponsor environmental events, and to contribute to BUC’s sustainable efforts, e.g., providing direct trade Equal Exchange Coffee for Sunday Coffee Hour, and bees wax candles for the Sanctuary.
We intend to continue to collect Household Electronics and Hazardous Waste at BUC in October each year; in addition there will be other collections for hazardous household items (no electronics) in other neighborhoods throughout the year.
Childcare for our youngest is available during services.
All children are welcome!
Reverend Marcia Curtis invites you to participate in a Buddhism-based meditation in a group setting. Join us Sundays at 7:30pm in the church sanctuary. Newcomers welcome.
