GS 29: The Excitement Begins – A Letter from Rev. Felix Villanueva
July 12, 2012 Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, General Synod is the United Church of Christ unleashed and out of the box… It is excitement, hoopla and all the diversity and energy one can imagine - and perhaps more… It is celebrities, surprises and tangible opportunities to begin to KNOW what it means to be UCC... It is also a time of discovery – “How many forms of “UCC” can I see/feel here?” “What (if any) are the extents or limits of UCC?” “How/where does UCC change the world and people’s lives?” All this and more can be discovered during Synod…can make your experience there one to celebrate – and share! And, of course, there are the cookies, hundreds of dozens of them, mostly home baked. It’s a never-ending supply of cookies - enough to blow one’s mind... And those are just for starters! It is also a chance to experience the mystery and power of “God’s Vision: ” Note the space after the colon. It represents your, my, our chance to discern as God speaks to us. The theme of Synod 29, “God’s Vision: ” is an open invitation to listen to our stillspeaking God and to share, up close and personal, ...
Get the Most From General Synod 29: Start Your Bucket List Now!
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, as a couple of terminally ill duffers out to LIVE! before they die, made “bucket list” a household phrase in 2007. From skydiving to riding motorcycles along the Great Wall of China and flying over the North Pole, they “did it all,” crossing item after item off their lists with a panache that eventually spilled over into friendship, connection with faith and family and the fulfillment of dreams in unexpected ways. Good plot…great plan for Synod goers! Okay, you’ve decided to give General Synod 29 a try: it is, after all, in Long Beach, hosted by your own Conference. Now would be a good time to think bucket list. What might you hope to see and do between June 28 and July 2, 2013?” How about the 2013 equivalents of “dancing with Bishop Tutu” and “flash mob communion,” memorable moments recalled by past participants in articles for Connecting Voices magazine (http://www.scncucc.org/voices/)? Or, as others have celebrated: • “an experience of God’s peace” • “a family reunion - immersion into our identity as people of the UCC” • “the palpable power of those who follow Jesus” • “the energy of faith-rich community” • “worship as an invitation to simply be” • “a deep sense of belonging…these people ‘get ...
UCC Scarf Project for General Synod 29
If rainbow-splashed scarves blowing in the California breeze on a hot summer day don't raise a few eyebrows and generate some dialogue, the Rev. Marja Coons-Torn doesn't know what will. In a colorful, symbolic move to stem the tide of violence –– most notably, the recent wave of bullying –– Coons-Torn has created the UCC Scarf Project with a goal of crafting 3,000 scarves in time for the United Church of Christ's General Synod 29 next July in Long Beach, Calif. "The project has spread like wildfire," said Coons-Torn. "It truly has taken on a life of its own. I know of men and women in at least a half-dozen conferences that are already hard at work." One church off and running with the project is St. John's UCC in Mifflinburg, Pa., where the Rev. Susan Gabbard has a message for those who are bullied: You do not deserve it. "There are some people who are just so full of hate and insecurities that they look for other people to pick on to make themselves feel better," said the Rev. Susan Gabbard, church pastor. "It's not even about you." Volunteers have started to knit, crochet and weave their way ...

Border Immersion with the Los Angeles Council of Religious Leaders
On February 26 and February 27, a delegation of distinguished Los Angeles faith leaders visited the U.S. – Mexico border at San Diego– Tijuana to on an information gathering tour to survey the border environment in order to better understand the complexities and challenges of immigration reform. In Mexico, faith leaders met with immigration reform advocates, public policy experts, immigration attorneys and heard personal testimony from persons adversely affected by American immigration laws, particularly those displaced from family members still living in the United States, as part of The Los Angeles Council of Religious Leader’s (LACRL) “One Voice For Comprehensive Immigration Reform” initiative.

Reflections with Fellow Sojourners – After the First Day: Genesis, Paul, Resurrection, and the Journey of Life
by Rev. Dr. James D. Findlay As we enter the season of Easter, the defining event of our faith, we bask in the beauty and power of our yearly celebration of new life. Even as the memory of joyful hymns and springtime growth remains with us, we also sense that we are experiencing a new time. Cross and Resurrection, deepest loss and overwhelming blessing, are now behind us, and we face a future in which faith must confront both possibility and uncertainty. As the old song asks, “What are you doing the rest of your life?” After Easter, after the first day of new creation, the Word and the Spirit offer us guidance. If we consider Genesis 1 and the days of creation, we hear on the first day that God spoke, and there was light. Similarly, if we see Easter as our first day, the resurrection of Christ is the light from which all else flows. Without this primal and powerful event, there is no eternal hope, there is no light which even darkness cannot overcome. As Paul writes after his Corinthian congregation asks about the Resurrection: “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile.” (1 Cor. 15:17). ...
by Reverend Heather Miner An Epiphany! I love it when I get to have an epiphany! It is like the moment when that word you need to finish the crossword puzzle suddenly pops into your head, only better, 100 times better. You have found not only an answer, but also God. I came to this awareness on Good Friday, the wrong season for Epiphany. Good Friday is about Jesus, the cross, and the realization that, within the worst parts of our humanity, lay the seeds for Jesus’ death. It is a time of confession and tears. How much have we lost as a human race? How much have we killed? What have I done? The music of the Christian church grows solemn; the words of guilt placed upon our tongues as we confess that our ways are what killed Jesus. We are meant to feel the distance between us and God…a distance caused by tuning into the wrong voices and forgetting to listen to the only one that matters. With Jesus gone, the voice that connects us to God, the universe seems so vast; we so small. Silence. Gone is the chatty prayer. Our friend is gone. Jesus’ absence makes clear ...
Planting Trees in Peru a Labor of Love for California Church
by Connie N. Larkman, Reprinted from www.ucc.org/news (used with permission) Mission 4/1 Earth is an incredibly personal project for members of a Southern California church. Gina Low, a long-time member of the Woodland Hills Community Church congregation has just returned from the Amazon Jungle, where she spent months working to save the rainforest in remote river villages in the Loreto Region of Peru. "The only thing you can do to help these people is educate them — teach them that the rest of the world needs them," said Low. "Once they have awareness that other people need them to plant these trees and care for the forest, it happens. They learn reforestation is important to the rest of the world." Gina Low should know. As the founder and president of the Association Promoting Education and Conservation in Amazonia (APECA), Low has dedicated the past 20 years to teaching the villagers in Peru about reforestation. "Planting a tree comes with education," Low stressed. "The education component is life-saving in these villages. We're planting trees, but we're also addressing health and education. These people are conservators of the rain forest — we need them healthy." As part of Mission 4/1 Earth, 50 ...
Supporting Synod: Pilgrim Place’s Extravagant Welcome!
by Janet Vandevender [caption id="attachment_1299" align="alignleft" width="300"] Janet Vandevender[/caption] Do you believe in the future of the United Church of Christ? Residents - and staff - of Pilgrim Place, the retirement community founded for missionaries 98 years ago in Claremont, do!

141 Great Years: First Congregational Church of Riverside
by Don Miller, Moderator In the stifling midsummer heat, two men shared a buggy on the long ride out to the proposed site for a new settlement carved out of the old Juan Bandini Land Grant. They were Isaac Atherton, Senior Minister and founder of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, and John North, founder of the city of Riverside. The great flood of 1863 and the subsequent drought had wiped out ranching in much of Southern California and the great Spanish and Mexican land grants were being sold off. The men drove across the Santa Ana River through the chaparral brush, stopping often to check the soil, and soon concluded that if water could be found, this land could prosper. Reverend Atherton also noted that the clean dry air seemed to ease the respiratory illness that was causing him distress. Both men decided to take a chance and set down roots. North found the water and organized a town and Atherton began a little church with six members, including himself and his wife. The city of Riverside and the First Congregational Church of Riverside share a great deal of history. Both were founded in 1872. Many of the ...

UCUC Celebrates a Milestone
By Lisa Stofan* [caption id="attachment_8604" align="alignleft" width="300"] L to R - Lisa Stofan, Kassandra Wallies, Tom O'Toole[/caption] A strong and growing church has to stay on its toes and offer new and exciting ways to worship. Many churches have given contemporary gatherings a try and we at University City United Church, San Diego are no exception. More than two years ago, a small group of forward thinkers met to discuss the idea of having a Saturday evening contemporary worship service. It would be led by a lay person, and include new music, topics, activities, and guest speakers. The service began in January 2010 and was to go for a six month trial period. We are proud to announce that we have just celebrated our two year anniversary! We call our service “The 5:11 Gathering” and start the monthly service at … you guessed it…5:11 pm. We meet on the fourth Saturday of each month. We picked our scripture inspiration from Psalm 5, verse 11, “Let all who take refuge in You rejoice, let them sing joyful praises forever.” It has become truly a place of refuge and rejoicing – a place to share our faith and our fellowship. We have shared ...
Bright Shiny Seeds: Neal Washburn’s Ecclesiastical Council and Other Highlights of the Southern Association’s Annual Meeting
by Mary Domb Mikkelson, Senior Editor Connecting Voices [caption id="attachment_8385" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="Neal Washburn"][/caption] “Look! Something shiny!” Asked about his seemingly boundless energy and the myriad directions in which he expends it, Neal Washburn pointed skyward, conveying with both words and gesture the excitement of yet another new toy, another star to follow, another way to enrich the lives of UCC’s youth. “Something shiny” summed the day up neatly, from Neal’s Ecclesiastical Council (affirming him as a Commissioned Minister of Youth) to the installation of the Southern Association’s new officers and enthusiastic reports of “success stories” and opportunities to serve – from conference, association and individual churches, alike. Here, too, Neal set the tone, speaking of his personal “cloud of witnesses,” the “seed planters” who so greatly influenced the direction of his life – parents who encouraged service and faithfulness, “Gram,” whose “message” was of faith and love, the minister whose “seeds” promoted curiosity, questioning and study. Then there were Dexter, the youth leader whose ministry inspired Neal’s, and the folks at various church camps. Among the seeds they planted were outdoor ministry, guitar music, worship as a celebration to God, listening, patience, love, acceptance, community and communion. There were many ...
New Hurricane Sandy Disaster Recovery Opportunities
Opportunities now are available in Atlantic City, NJ in partnership with the Fuller Center for Housing. This community is ready to embark on the repair/rebuild stage of disaster recovery. The minimum age is 16 years (with some limited projects for volunteers age 14). Opportunities for service (and group housing) now also are available in New York City in partnership with New York Cares with housing at a local UCC church. This opportunity engages volunteers in the continuing muck out/mold remediation stage of disaster recovery. Volunteers at this location will not be doing repair/rebuild. Also note: although disaster-related projects are assigned with priority, groups serving here also may engage in non-disaster-related volunteer projects with New York Cares. Those particular project assignments are made one-month prior to the date of service. The minimum age for this location is 18 years. The length of time between destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy in late October of 2012 and today when impacted communities still are hovering between the continuing clean-up stage of recovery and the housing repair/rebuild stage illustrates the need for the commitment to long-term disaster recovery. The recovery process takes a long time. The sustenance of faith feeds a commitment to accompany ...

Come and hear a bit of what we are doing nationally and internationally in our ministries of justice and witness! Plus as a bonus, you’ll get to meet other P & J (peace and justice) friends from our UCC churches! We know this is Mother’s Day – and how appropriate since in 1870, Julia Ward Howe wrote a passionate appeal to women and urged them to rise against war in her famous Mother’s Day Proclamation. This was shortly after the conclusion of the Civil War. Two years later Mother’s Day was celebrated as a witness against the carnage of war by Mother’s on behalf of their children. Rev. Linda Jaramillo is one of our contemporary UCC women who advocates for Justice and Peace on our behalf. You and others from your church are invite to come meet her, LIVE and IN PERSON!
