Bill Newby, a good friend of UUCL and recently-lapsed-South Carolinian, moved back to Cleveland, Ohio, April 2020, just in time for a year of social distancing.
Now, in the middle of National Poetry Month, he will join us to reflect on the power of poetry to keep us connected.
Bill’s poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, and selections from his two collections, Sea Chests or a Carry-On and Passing Through, can be previewed at www.billnewby.net.
Bill will be joining us after the service for our virtual discussion group. If you are not on our ZOOM email list contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join the conversation.
Coming Soon: Sunday, April 11, 2021 - 'The Price of Freedom' a live streamed service with Rev. Dick Hood. Viewable on our Website or at Facebook.com/uulowcountry.

Sunday, April 4, 2021 at 10:00a.m. - "Easter With a UU Filter" a Live Streamed Service with Rev. Pat Jobe. Viewable on our website and at Facebook.com/uulowcountry
His followers claim that a certain teacher and friend of the poor rose from the grave. Is there any value in such a story for Unitarian Universalists? Rev. Pat Jobe shows up for another Sunday with us offering that maybe someone who taught the ultimacy of love and generosity, and later outfoxed the executioner, might have lessons for those of us in the 21st century Lowcountry. Maybe, maybe not. Rev. Jobe said to tell all he misses his friends in the Lowcountry and looks forward to being together in person soon.
Sunday, March 28, 2021 at 10:00a.m. - The Dignity of a Good Death (And other fun conversations) - A Live Streamed Service with Rev. Charlie Tyler and Rev. Dick Hood.

Sunday, Marcy 21, 2021 at 10:00a.m. - "Treating People with Dementia with Dignity" A Live Streamed Service Featuring Debbie Anderson (Community Education Director 'Memory Matters.')
Memory Matters’ Sensitivity Training Program increases awareness of special needs of individuals living with mild to moderate forms of dementia and their caregivers. Attendees will learn effective interaction strategies specific to their environment, i.e. home, church, and other public places. Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common type of dementia, often with unrecognized onset years before symptoms appear. Recognizing and understanding behaviors associated with dementia, and treating the person with dignity and respect, can be key to becoming a congregation sensitive to their needs.

educational presentations and trainings in the Lowcountry. Debbie is also a Certified Dementia
Dialogues Trainer through the University of South Carolina. Her career experiences include

customer service facilitator (The Customer®), and holds a degree in Organizational Leadership
from LaGrange College, GA.

Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 10:00a.m. - "Replacing Me with We." a live streamed service with Rev. Neal Jones.
The insurrection at our Capitol on January 6th was a graphic reminder of the fragility of democracy, even American democracy. But the threat runs deeper than politics and ideology. It is spiritual. It's the inability to put the common good before self-interest.
A Brief Bio of Neal:
Rev. Dr. Neal R. Jones is a psychologist at the Pisgah Institute in Asheville. Born and raised in
North Carolina, he earned his B.A. from Wake Forest University, his M.Div. from Southeastern
Seminary, and his Psy.D. from Baylor University. He has served as pastor to five congregations in North and South Carolina, Texas, and Pennsylvania, most recently at Main Line Unitarian Church near Philly and the UU Congregation of Columbia, SC. He also serves as the chair of the national Board of Trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church & State. Rev. Dr. Jones teaches and practices a spirituality of personal wholeness, relational respect, and social justice.
Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 10:00a.m. - "The small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay" (JRR Tolkien spoken through Gandalf) - A Live Streamed Service with Rev. Charlie Tyler.
Bravery and courage may be big and bold and come at needful times...but this preacher sees the power of ordinary folk (you) doing everyday deeds.
A Special Note from Charlie Tyler:
Our theme for this month is bravery. My message for the 28th revolves around " small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay". We are also in the middle of Black History month. I am offering two links for the congregation that might tie the two together. The links I'm offering are focused on ordinary people and the courage they bring to their every life. I'll be referencing these talks in my message. I'm hoping these links are helpful to the journey we are all on...together.

Sunday, February 21, 20201 at 10:00a.m. - "Finding Our Power in Times Such as These" with Dafina Ward.
We are living through times that will be documented in history books and studied for decades (and possibly centuries) to come. Unprecedented crises surround us and it would be understandable if we all just headed for cover and waited for the storms to pass. But do we have a greater responsibility?
