The Lighted Chalice for January 2015

A Month of Sundays

Sunday Service & Religious Exploration Classes begin at 10:30 a.m.
Nursery and childcare available

SUNDAY, JANUARY 4: ‘Prayer Turns the Lights On’ and Other Things I Believe About Prayer

Worship Leader: Sherry Tripodi
Worship Associate: Dianna Poindexter
Sound: Mary Finley
Fellowship Team: Linda & Josh Prokopy
Pulpit Preparation: Robin Poindexter
Sharing of Joys & Concerns

To me, prayer is like electricity. I don’t claim to understand how it works. Yet when I am in the dark, I know to reach for the switch and the light that comes comforts me.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 11 “Epiphany”

Worship Leader: Rev. Charlie Davis
Worship Associate: Michael Lewis
Sound: Carl Seese
Fellowship Team: Mark VanMeeter
Pulpit Preparation: Nina Kirkpatrick

This celebrates the arrival of the Magi at the manger. The followed the light of the star and saw the light of the world. Epiphany also has come to mean whenever a brilliant idea flashes in our mind. Often at New Year’s, we make resolutions about what we are going to give up. This year let us imagine we are Magi. What light will we follow? What gifts do we bring? What do we hope to discover?

SUNDAY, JANUARY 18: “King Wieman and Tillich”

Worship Leader: Rev. Charlie Davis
Worship Associate: Bill Welge
Sound: Jason Dufair
Fellowship Team: Barny Dunning and Beth Misner
Pulpit Preparation: Nina Kirkpatrick

For his PhD dissertation, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., compared Unitarian Henry Nelson Wieman with German theologian Paul Tillich. Wieman defined God as creativity; Tillich defines God as Being itself. King believed both of these concepts were too impersonal to have a religious experience based on relationship.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 25 “Reason the Only Oracle of Man”

Worship Leader: Rev. Charlie Davis
Worship Associate: Kris Taylor
Sound: Noemi Ybarra
Fellowship Team: Amy French and Christine Schertz
Pulpit Preparation: Nina Kirkpatrick

American Revolution hero Ethan Allen wrote this treatise as a compendious system of natural religion. He attacked organized religion and encouraged people to look to reason to discover the transcending mystery and wonder of the world.

Sunday Forum

Sunday Morning Forum meets at 9 am in Room 101/103. Everyone is welcome! Childcare is provided. Co-chairs: Jim Anderson, Tom McConville, Bill Welge

Minister's Musings

Most UUs are familiar with the seven principles. Few people are able to list all seven, but they know that there are seven. Fewer still know that the Unitarian Universalist Association also lists six sources of spirituality.

For the first six months of 2015 we will be focusing on one source per month:

  • January: Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.
  • February: Words and deeds of prophetic women and men, which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.
  • March: Wisdom from the world’s religions, which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.
  • April: Jewish and Christian teachings that call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
  • May: Humanist teachings that counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • June: Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions that celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Most worship services and religious exploration programs will reflect these themes. It is an effort to help each person understand his or her own spirituality. We do not all come from the same place and our goal is not to end up with the same creed. The world supplies a banquet table full of spiritual nourishment. Each congregation is a philosophical potluck. Sharing our stories is source of strength. Come to the table of wonder and transformation.

-- Rev. Charlie

From the Board President

Happy New Year everyone!

There’s just something about starting a new year — be it a new school year, fiscal year, calendar year — that gives one a feeling of new and unlimited possibilities. [In the next section, I date myself. I do not have a smart phone, and my calendar is paper. Really!] The pages of the calendar are unmarked and for a moment, there’s a feeling of freedom — no obligations, no commitments. For a moment. Then, if you are like me, you start by filling in birthdays and anniversaries. You happily remember each person as you place them on your calendar. And then the work begins — you start placing in appointments and meetings, things “to remember,” things “to keep in mind”: pay this bill, take your cat to the vet on this day.

As you are placing dates on your 2015 calendar, do not forget Feb. 22 — it’s the date of our Service Auction and promises to be a fabulous evening! And Dec. 4-5 will be the dates of our Art Fair. Not only are these great events to attend, but they are the major fundraisers for our church. We hope you will be able to volunteer in some way as well. There are other events to keep in mind (and on your calendar), but these do not yet have a fixed date: Church Clean-Up, Plant Sale, and Rummage Sale. There will be times for fun and fellowship too — first Sunday potlucks, last Sunday birthday celebrations, and various events organized by our Fun(d) Force. Add in various RE events, Social Justice activities, and AREC workshops, and it seems like there’s always something going on here.

That’s a good thing … no, a GREAT thing! Our church is open and welcoming. Thanks to you. Thanks to everyone who pledges to our church. By pledging, you allow the Finance Committee and the Board plan for the future. You help us anticipate and plan for our year. Your pledges make our dreams a reality.

Our reality is a very full calendar for 2015. Happy New Year indeed.

2015 Budget

The proposed 2015 budget was approved at the December congregational meeting. The great news is we are on target to end 2014 with a slight surplus; this means we did not have to borrow from our capital funds. The other good news is that we will have a new roof on part of the building before the end of the year.This also means we have almost depleted the capital fund, so there can be no more “borrowing” from there in the event of a shortfall of funds.
We have been talking for a few years about finding ways to increase revenue; depending less on pledge income was the goal. As you will notice, our pledge income for 2015 is just $5,000 more than 2014. So, we HAVE to raise money somewhere else. I have set up two task forces in the past month and have asked a few congregants to be a part of them:

  • We have a building use committee, charged with finding people and groups to use our building.
  • I’ve also constituted a “Fun(d) Force,” who will be exploring ways for our congregation to have fun AND raise some money. For instance, in January, we will be having a fundraiser at Puccini’s Smiling Teeth restaurant. You can take a flyer into Puccini’s on the designated Thursday night and 20 percent of your order will be donated back to the church. We are cautiously optimistic about this Fun(d) Force, and hope to raise at least $1,000 this way.
  • Finally, I ask you for help — do you attend a group that meets here at the church? Are you an artist? A musician? What can you, or your group, do to help us raise some funds? Do you have a Kroger card? Do you use the church link when you order on Amazon?

Just three areas of our expenses have substantial increases for 2015: salaries, benefits, and utilities. For salaries, we are proposing a modest 1.5 percent increase for 2015. Utility costs are also projected to increase, but we hope the new roof will provide some added insulation in the fellowship hall and will save us a bit of money on heating and cooling. I have also put together an energy-saver task force and have asked that they explore concrete ways to save money.

Mark VanMeeter and I met with a couple of cleaning companies in November, and ultimately were able to renegotiate our contract with our current cleaning company, for a savings of almost $3,000.

Finally, we will be reviewing our membership roll and removing individuals who have not responded to our letter, which simply asks if they wish to remain a member of our congregation.

In the end, we still face a shortfall in the 2015 budget of $12,804. In addition, we are unable to pay for a pianist at this time. At this time, I want to ask you for a couple of things: if you have not yet made a commitment to our church for 2015, I ask you to pledge — today. If you have already pledged, please consider making an additional gift for 2015.

When the board voted to approve this budget for 2015, we also made a commitment. We will monitor our expenses in the first quarter of 2015, and we will be re-visiting the budget in March.

Jubilee Christmas

jubilee 1 jubilee 2On Dec. 13, 13 low-income families gathered in our fellowship hall to celebrate LUM’s Jubilee Christmas.

Along with our partner congregations (Lafayette Church of the Brethren and The Society of Friends), we were able to provide fellowship, toys, household supplies, cookies, hams, and gift certificates so that the families could have a joyful holiday season.

In the Lafayette-West Lafayette community, the same event was taking place at 23 other churches, and collectively we served approximately 600 families (1,600 children).

Mary Finley and I, as co-chairs, are enormously grateful to all the UUs who helped make this very meaningful event possible, and we are happy that our congregation is able to play a role in LUM’s Christmas Jubilee each year.

Mary and I would like to acknowledge the UU members and friends who helped with Jubilee. Thank you to all who purchased toys for the children. The selection was amazing. Thank you to the Friday night set-up crew. Thank you to Nicole Rice and the RE program for earning money to shop for other children, and to the parents and children who did that shopping.

Thank you to all those who helped on Saturday by hosting, working in the kitchen, greeting guests, playing holiday music, or wrapping gifts: Linda Lou Prokopy, Maeve Drummond, Rae Brandt, Nina Kirkpatrick, Linda Prokopy, Dave Shelton, Kat Braz, Nancy Patchen, Kris Tiffany, Andrea Burniske, Lola Straub, Gracie Gould, Lynn Holland, Susanne McConville, Della Willmann, Yiseul Suh, Jean Herr, and Dorothy Hughes, John Finley, and anyone else we have overlooked (very sorry to omit any names).

Here are some of the comments our guests made about Jubilee:

  • It means so much to me. I am not able to buy Christmas presents for my girls.
  • My kids wouldn’t have a Christmas without it.
  • Jubilee is the epitome of Santa Claus for our family. It is the magic of Christmas for us.
  • It was great. It helps out a lot having done no shopping yet. Just had surgery.

And from a volunteer:

This was my first year as a host as well and it was absolutely wonderful! The mom I helped shop for was very appreciative and so happy with what she got for her two kids. I went my and saw her today at the restaurant where she works for lunch and she was still full of joy. I will be sending a Christmas card to her family this week! So happy to be a part of this!
— Gracie Gould

All of you made a difference to families needing a helping hand.
Jean Tyner, Jubilee Christmas co-chair

Religious Exploration

Director of Religious Exploration Nicole Rice, drenicolerice@gmail.com

LOOKING BACK

December was a month of sharing joy, traditions, and the spirit of giving. Here are some pictures from the Giving Tree fundraiser. We raised $370 to buy toys for the LUM Jubilee Christmas.

LOOKING FORWARD

In January, the RE program will continue to explore UU traditions by making connections to the weekly sermons.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

  • Jan. 25 You are invited to our monthly birthday party, following the service in the fellowship hall. Please see Nicole to fill out a birthday sheet if you haven’t.
  • We are in need of RE guides, subs, workshop teachers, shadows, and other volunteers. Please let me know if you are interested. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall.
  • Please see http://regluu.wordpress.com/ for RE information and updates.
  • The OWL program will be starting up in January for seventh-ninth grade. Please let me know if you’d like more information.

Stewardship Update

Another successful Stewardship campaign is coming to an end. As of this writing, we have collected 115 pledge cards, totaling $233,743, with several cards still in the mail.
This number exceeds the 2015 budget for pledge income, placing us closer to closing our budget deficit. This is fantastic news! A huge thank you to everyone who pledged, especially those who pledged in a timely manner, and also to everyone who worked on the campaign. All of the support and help made this effort a success.

I would like to recognize those people who reported themselves as Fair Share Givers. This means they gave at or above an amount recommended by the UUA correlating to their income.

We truly could not do the work of our church without these donors: Charles Babbs, Roy and Caroline Barnhart, Rae Brandt and David Shelton, Keith Brown, Gale Charlotte, June Cohen, Don and Ruth Ann Ferris, Mary Ann Foley, Cheryl and Gary Fowler, Cindy Gerlach and Gary Mueller, Laura Geiger and Mike Reed, Dorothy Hughes, Julie and Brent Jesiek, Nina Kirkpatrick, Bob Kovak and Janice Kritchevsky, Joan Marshall, Lorraine and Randy Myer, Linda and Josh Prokopy, Susanne Robinson, Julie and Jason Rubsam, Kim Smith, Mark VanMeeter, Matthew and Jessica Volovski, Della Willmann, Suzan Windnagel, Patty Wood, Noemi Ybarra, and Joan Zinn. (Please excuse any inadvertent omissions.)

Change for Change

The Change for Change recipient for January and February is the Tippecanoe Country Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program.

A child who has been abused or neglected or requires special treatment that can not or will not be provided without court intervention needs someone to advocate for their rights and look out for his or her best interest. A court-appointed advocate tries to fulfill these needs.

The program has grown significantly since 1985, when there were only eight cases in Tippecanoe County in which an attorney guardian ad litem was appointed. By August 1990, the program had 61 cases assigned to a CASA volunteer. Last year CASA represented 340 children with a staff of eight people and 117 volunteers.

Kroger/Payless Gift Cards

Our church sells reloadable Kroger/Payless gift cards as a fundraiser. We receive 3 percent of the amount loaded onto the cards on an ongoing basis. You can purchase a gift card during the potluck on the first Sunday of the month.

The card will be preloaded with $25. Any amount can be added to the card at Payless to continue the fundraising efforts.

-- Kim Smith, Finance Committee

Potlucks! Who doesn't love 'em?

potlucksIt seems everybody loves our first-Sunday-of-the-month potlucks, and we want to continue to be able to invite newcomers and those who visit for the first time to join us, even though they sometimes protest that since they didn't know about it, they do not have a dish to contribute.
We want everybody to feel free to come join us for great food and conversation on the first Sunday of the month, and we hope that there will always be enough to go around, so here are a few simple requests:

  • If your Fellowship Team is "in charge" on a Sunday when there is a potluck, those Fellowship Team members are asked to please bring a main dish that will serve eight to 12.
  • If your Fellowship Team is "off duty" on a potluck Sunday, we hope you will pitch in by providing a salad, side dish, appetizer, bread, or dessert — and again, since there are usually quite a few hearty eaters, it should serve at least eight.

And don't worry that your hot offering will get cold and be unappealing; the Fellowship Team on duty will be glad to keep it warm in one of the ovens until serving time.

Thanks to everybody for all the great food and fellowship that you provide for our potlucks — everybody appreciates it!

-- Lola Straub, Membership Committee

See it? Report it!

You’re at the church and notice a leaky faucet in the kitchen. You are in the bathroom, and a toilet appears to be leaking. What should you do? Walk to the Information Center in front of the church office suite and look for the label “Building.” There you will find a Work Order Request form; read the information and fill out the form. In the case of a leaking toilet, you would follow the directions to alert appropriate staff; in the case of the leaky faucet, fill out the form, please.

Thanks for helping keep our building safe for all.

Art Fair Recap 2014

Another Art Fair has passed and we want to extend our thanks to everyone who volunteered, donated food, or attended. The weather was warm, and a little wet, but the weekend was beautiful and we had very good attendance. Proceeds from the Art Fair were excellent. We wish everyone a happy Holiday Season. See you next year!

-- Art Fair Committee

Exciting Endowment News

The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette has received a $1.5 million grant from the Lilly Foundation to provide 50 percent matches for any gifts to Community Foundation-held endowments. The church has four endowment funds held by the Community Foundation that would be eligible (General, Building, Religious Education and Social Justice).

If you would like to make an endowment gift and have it matched, please send the foundation a check made out to the Community Foundation with UUC Endowment in the memo line (The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, 1114 E. State St., Lafayette, IN 47905-1219).

Please let the Endowment Committee know so that we can acknowledge your gift. The Community Foundation has already seen a large response to this incentive and all match funds are first come, first served.

Building Your Own Theology

Based on the book by Richard Gilbert, this classic Unitarian Universalist adult education program invites participants to develop their personal credos, the fundamental religious beliefs, values and convictions that inform and direct the living of their lives. The eight-week program will be facilitated by Ellen Germann. 4-6 p.m. Sundays beginning Jan. 18, 2015.

E-mail Ellen Germann at ecgermann@earthlink.net. Limited to 12 participants so register soon. Purchase the workbook for $20 or borrow a copy.

Blue Moon Rising Community Choir

On Jan. 14, Blue Moon Rising Choir will gather for the first time. For planning purposes I am trying to get an idea of the size of the choir, so if you are considering joining please let me know.
Though the choir is renting space here at the UU Church and many UUs will be part of the choir, it is an independent organization and is open to anyone in the community. Learn more at www.denisewilson.net/blue-moon-rising or at my Denise Wilson Music Facebook page.

Member Bio: Tim Luttermoser

Tim Luttermoser photo

Tim Luttermoser

Tim Luttermoser grew up Presbyterian but stumbled across the UU tradition while researching Kurt Vonnegut for a high school English paper.

He began attending a UU church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and briefly participated in a UU club at Hiram College. After moving to West Lafayette for graduate school, Tim saw signs for the church but didn’t immediately begin attending until he met some members of the church at Outfest.

He keeps coming back because our church lives up to its commitment to service and social justice and isn’t afraid to take a stand on controversial issues such as gay marriage.
Tim is currently studying for his master’s degree in entomology at Purdue University with the goal of becoming a professor at a small teaching college. Prior to enrolling at Purdue, he spent time living in Iowa and in California, studying the role of bees in agricultural systems as a field technician.

As an undergraduate he was also fortunate enough to go on a 12-week study abroad trip where he took courses on biology, travel writing, and science while visiting nine countries across four continents.

In his free time, Tim enjoys practicing his electric bass, playing Dungeons & Dragons and other role-playing games, and trying new craft beers and mixed drinks. He’s also a board member for the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals (NOGLSTP) at Purdue.

Last year Tim helped with the Art Fair. And in high school, he volunteered via his church with an organization called PeaceJam, which brought together Nobel peace prize laureates and high school students with the goal of empowering students to develop their own volunteer projects.
