Crafting for a Cause

Our group of knitters and crocheters meets the fourth Wednesday at 6:30-8:45PM. Group meets at various locations. We continue making scarves, hats, socks and mittens for refugees with 75 – 100% wool yarns. We have some additional local charity choices, as well. Some extra supplies and patterns will be on hand, as well as guidance if you hit a snag or are ready to learn to knit or crochet. All are welcome!

Readers’ Theater

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 10:30 to noon.  We are currently reading short stories from the Anthology BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES OF THE CENTURY, John Updike, Editor. We are still meeting on Zoom because it’s the preference of some of our members.  People who enjoy reading short stories aloud are welcome!

Esteemed Elders

In keeping with the mission of our congregation, this group of UU Marin Esteemed Elders can share with you the fruits of diverse individual journeys through life. The Elders exist to be of service to all ages of this congregation, from the oldest to the youngest, by sowing seeds of wisdom acquired through the experiences of long lives. Collectively the group has approximately 1200 years of life experience, and they are multi-talented people who have learned and grown from life’s perennial problems: from the death of loved ones including children, from the suicide of loved ones, from emotional abuse, from domestic violence, from drugs and alcohol abuse in families, from second chances, from career changes, from challenging careers, and from romances at all of life’s stages including the oldest. The elders are also highly trained/educated and skilled in many fields and can offer help in the areas of writing, reading, learning, and communicating and more. The Esteemed Elders seek to be your spiritual mentors and serve as intergenerational bestowers of what has been learned by living long and rich lives. If you are interested, please contact the Pastoral Care Committee Chair, the Minister, or the Office Administrator to receive a list of elders, their listed skills and their contact information.
