Hey everyone,

My name is Rachel Sarah, and I just created this new community rainbowsofhope. It was created as a place where you can talk about your problems and make friends along the way. Please feel more than free to join.

My appologies if this sort of thing isn't allowed.

Anyone in the Thomas Jefferson District? (x-posted) [25 May 2005|03:24pm]

Because alot of our success is determined upon our interaction with each other, congregation to congregation - I have decided to form a District Community here on Live Journal.

I do hope this gets used frequently for communication among us; for a sounding board; for a place to share joys, rants, concerns, ideas.

Feel free to post anything you choose; try to stay on topic as far as it being related to the UU's however; we all have times we just need the support of others and I would hope that people within the community would be open to offering that support.

For more information; please refer to our bio.

ps - I'm hoping no one minds the "blurb", if so - feel free to remove it.

still life with chalice

acrylic on canvas, 11x14

I wish you could all come over for tea and have a look.
The glazes on the bottle, knife and apple, that give them a nice wet glow, do not show int eh photograph.
Also, due to the glazes, I could not photograph in such a way as to bring out the more dramatic highlights on the apples than what you see here, without causing a glare on them that ruined the image. Also, I added a bit of clear glaze on and around the flame and sprinkled on a tiny bit of the finest glitter I could find, gives it a nice sparkle! Anyway, you get the idea.

calling all artistic weirdo UUs... [27 Feb 2005|07:00pm]

I know you're out there...
Why, there must be millions of artists hiding and lurking in UU congregations everywhere.
In fact, I would guess that there are more UUs involved, in one way or another, in some form of art, than there are not.

I did some searching for UU art at google, at the uua.org, at the CLF site...
There's not much to be found, and, frankly, that really surprises me.
I found one site selling a few chalice paintings on prints and cards.
It shocks me, really, because, if one can generalize about UUs at all, I think one can say that UUs are colorful, creative, thoughtful people with great vision.
Yes. You know it't true.
There is a UU Musicians Fellowship. I found that.
But there seems to be no commission or committee or fellowship, niche, closet or corner specifically for UU artists to share, learn from and minister to each other.
I think that's a problem. I think that as UU artists, we need to Unite for various purposes.
Well, as mentioned, we should join to share our art, to learn from each other, to minister to each other.
And, if nothing else, we need to do it to make the rest of the world aware of just how brilliant and creative we UUs are.
And, don't you think that UUs the world round would be interested in art created by those who share their spiritual values?
I do.
Perhaps one step would be to create a UUArts community here on LJ?
I don't know. I don't really know what the first step is...Who to talk to at the UUA or CLF or anywhere else, to get the ball rolling.
But, I suppose the precursor to the first step is to find all of you artistic UUs and see what kind of interest exists and what kinds of ways we can envision to create a UU artist community.

Additionally, I was considering the possiblity of compiling a coffeetable book full of UU art, or, at least, art created by UUs (not necessarily chalice art, you know). It occured to me that including UU poetry in such a tome would be possibly appropriate or desirable, too, but, my guess is that books showcasing UU poetry have been done. I haven't looked into that yet. It may be that there is a need for that, as well. Combining both, UU art and poetry, would, imho, be very, very cool.

What do you think?
FAWUU? Fellowship of Artistic Weirdo UUs?
Arjuna? ARtistic Joyful Uu Nutcases Association?
Help me out here....

Locally, I'm looking into developing a UU art show at my own congregation (we have several dozen artistic weirdos, including myself), but all I've done so far is talk to a few of those weirdos during coffee after church. There is an interest. I just need to figure out how to proceed.

Oh yeah.
And I'm new here.
I've been a UU since 2000, officially. All Souls UU, New London, CT is my congregation, and it ROCKS!

President Ronald Reagan has died. [06 Jun 2004|01:00am]

[ mood | melancholy ]

Who's old enough to remember when he was President?

What do you think? He was very sick for a long time with Alzheimer's. Is it a relief for him to die? For anyone unfamiliar with him for whatever reason, Reagan was one of the longest living Presidents and the oldest one ever elected. He began to show signs of senility while in office.

I've been searching for a livejournal UU community for some time - and I've finally found one!

My name is Cass. I'm a teenage girl from the eastern United States. I'd love to discuss religion/politics/or anything else with anyone else hanging out here.

See ya!

Hi, my name is Tori. I'm 21 years old and a Unitarian. I've been trolling around LJ for a long time and never really looked for a LJ group for unitarians. Okay, just saying hi.

Later days.........
