President’s Message — December 2023

Don’t Get Your Tinsel In A Tangle

As most of us know (and probably learned the hard way), the best way to ensure a festive holiday season and maintain your sanity is to keep it simple. To that end, this month’s message will be simple.
First, many thanks go out to Clifford Schulman who created and delivered a very successful fundraiser for UUFP, Cooking with Cliff. Those in attendance learned new ways to prepare and cook turkey. In addition to sampling the prepared food, those in attendance walked away with recipes. Cliff put in a lot of time and effort into this program, and we greatly appreciate it. This event raised over $200 for the UUFP. If you missed this one, stay tuned for details about the next one which will take place sometime in the first quarter of 2024.
Second, please plan to attend our intergenerational “Christmas Eve” service to be held on Sunday, December 24 at 10:30 AM. The children will have a major role in this service which is always enjoyable. There will also be lots of singing, including songs performed by the children, our choir as well as opportunities for everyone in attendance to add their voices. Also, as is our tradition, we will donate our Christmas Eve plate collection to the Pottstown Cluster. Please feel free to bring family and friends to what will be a joyous time. It is important to note that this will not be a candlelight service, rather it will be held at our normal service time of 10:30 AM. Hope to see you there.
Lastly, December marks the start of the winter season and with that comes the risk of snow and ice. The Board will be making the decision regarding the need to cancel in-person services due to inclement weather. If possible, we will hold the service via Zoom. We will post any changes on the website and try to inform everyone by email no later than 8:00 AM on Sunday morning.
I will close with the following Yule Blessing: May the solstice and the turning of the wheel bring you love, peace, and good fortune in the coming year.

With Gratitude, Linda
