“The people of KUUC are committed to actively creating compassionate community and working for a fair and peaceful world.”
I am so proud of our church!!! The efforts this weekend, with many people involved, make our mission alive and real: We were “actively creating compassionate community,” and our signs and our voices left no doubt that we are actively involved in “working for a fair and peaceful world!”
Friday night, March 23, many from KUUC attended the sign making party in the Parish Hall, joining folks from MPA and the greater Keene community- from young to old. We made so many signs!!! Extras were taken to the rally and given out on Saturday morning. We talked about it being one way to build community.
Saturday morning a group from KUUC gathered and then walked together to Central Square, many of us wearing the bright yellow “Side of Love” sweatshirts (we certainly could be seen!). Then we gathered back at KUUC for soup, bread, coffee and desserts. There were also members of the community that joined us, and they thanked us for having the church open.
So a huge thank you to everyone who helped make signs, donated food, marched, kept the church open, and cleaned up and locked up. It was a wonderful team effort!
Note: Did you spot the four members of KUUC who were on the front page of the Keene Sentinel? Gratefully, D’Vorah Kelley

“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.” –Walt Whitman
“Every day we have opportunities to reconnect with God through an encounter with nature, whether an ordinary sunrise, a starling on a power line, a tree in a park, or a cloud in the sky. This spirituality doesn’t depend on education or belief. It almost entirely depends on our capacity for simple presence.” –Richard Rohr
