The Theme for April is STEWARDSHIP!

Greetings from the
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Galveston County!


April 3: – Rev. Bob Tucker “Misplaced Concreteness"
The mathematician-philosopher Alfred North Whitehead diagnosed a serious, and sometimes fatal, disease of the intellect as “misplaced concreteness.” That is, we make words and images the reality, identical to that to which they point. The topic of stewardship allows us to explore this use of language. Bob is a native of Minnesota and has served churches in South Dakota, Minnesota, Texas and Kansas. He was, for twenty-eight years, the Senior Minister of First Congregational Church of Houston. He is Executive Director Emeritus of The Foundation for Contemporary Theology.

Roll out the Barrel... Remember the barrel in the UU foyer designed by Lisa Windsor? It was originally there for placing donated gifts to be taken to various nonprofits as part of our Compassionate Offering Program--but often used as a trash can We have now dedicated the barrel for ongoing collection of disposable DIAPERS for the Galveston Diaper Bank. This group partners with other local organizations involved with creating a healthier environment for our low-income families. Diapers are given as an incentive to parents who participate in the Incredible Years parenting classes, a proven effective program for parents of young children.
