Unitarian Univeralist Clergy located in SouthEast Michigan today issued the following statement:
As Unitarian Universalist ministers we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person; and because marriage is held in honor among the blessings of life, we stand in strong support of equal marriage. As clergy, we will speak out to ensure equal protection for all who live and love in our state of Michigan. As people of faith, we call on our elected officials to pass marriage equality in the state of Michigan. Marriage equality strengthens families, protects children, and ensures the basic rights of citizenship for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender couples. In the face of injustice, we stand on the side of love.

Congratulations to these two congregations!
Members of the Peace, Justice and Sustainability Group at James Reeb UUC in Madison WI put on a service focused on Ethical Eating.
A message for all ages showed the children 2 types of lettuce - one conventionally grown in California, the other organically grown locally. After an explanation of the ways each lettuce were grown, the children determined that the more expensive, but locally grown lettuce was the better deal - for the environment, the growers and for the family that would eat it.
