    ****************COMMUNICATION CORNER*****************                                

    An alternative shared by Ted Doty:

    I pledge allegiance to the earth on which I stand

              One world, one people undivided

              With food, shelter, and justice for all.


    Just a reminder-----

              Each week following the meeting there are tasks that need to be done:  there are signs outside that must be put away along with extra chairs, candle, table, tablecloth, hymnals, name tags, etc.  If more people would do some part of the tasks, then a few people would have a little less to do.  Thank you for helping when you can!


    From the editor:  This is one of my favorite quotations, author unknown---

                                   “He who laughs—lasts.”


    Remember, we are the fellowship; you are the fellowship.  With that in mind-----

         Do you have an idea for a Sunday program?  Your input is needed and appreciated.  Call Beth Perkins or Richard Johnson . 


         Do you have a concern or an idea for SBUF improvement?  Come to a board meeting or call our fearless leader, Les Berg .
