“Iowa Sisterhood”

Rev. Janet Onnie

In recognition of Mothers Day we celebrate the women who birthed and nurtured Unitarian and Universalist congregations in the far reaches of the United States; places where the Harvard-educated clergy would not go.  One of the women even landed in Florida.    Collectively this group is known as the Iowa Sisterhood. 

If you are seeing Chat comments popping up in front of your eyes on your screen during the Sunday Service, you can click on “Exit Full Screen” and then click on the Chat icon. This will move the Chat box to the side, display all the Chat comments that occur during the service and allow you to only read them when you wish.

Now that Rev. Onnie has announced her retirement date there's lots of questions about next steps.  The Tri-UU Board has appointed the following members to the Interim Minister Search Committee to go through the process of finding an Interim Minister: Tim McCusker, Tom Murphy, John Seitz, Joyce Mills, Helen Dohn, and Gail Newstein.  Click HERE for the Interim Search timeline.


We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

  • Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations;

  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations; 

  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

The living tradition which we share draws from many sources:

  • 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;

  • 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;

  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;

  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;

  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;

  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

  • Grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith, we are inspired to deepen our understanding and expand our vision. As free congregations we enter into this covenant, promising to one another our mutual trust and support.

Friendship, the elixir of living

Conducted by John Seitz 

Death Cafe

You are invited to join some people from the Phoenix, AZ UU congregation (Christine Dance's) next Thursday, May 13th at 2 PM for our monthly death cafe.  A great way to meet other UUs and an opportunity to talk about one of our society's forbidden topics. These discussions are always tender and heart-felt and often hilarious. I would love for many of you whom I love to come together and meet each other.  Click HERE to join the Zoom meeting.
