You May not be able to change the whole world but you can change the place you live!

Putting the 7th Unitarian Universalist principle into action in our church and our community: “We Affirm and Promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”.

 

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more”.   Lord Byron

Our next EARTH FRIENDLY FRIDAY PROGRAM:

NATIONAL AUDUBON SOCIETY

Jan. 12, 2018 – Social time, 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program, 7:00

Whether a birder, naturalist, or environmentalist, you will agree, what we owe the Audubon Society is beyond measure. Ed Kyle will share details of their history, contributions and current programs. His visits to associated sanctuaries and National Wildlife Refuges will come to life through “oh wow” photography and stories enriched by Ed’s attention to details and passion for sharing priceless moments.

Ed is a retired clinical psychologist, originally from Lynchburg, and an alumnus of Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University. A former member of the Sierra Club’s Roanoke Group Executive Committee, Ed remains a solid supporter of local, national, and worldwide efforts to maintain quality of life on Earth. His parents’ backyard bird feeder and far-reaching curiosities sparked his early interest in birds and plants and he still recalls his father pointing out the difference between a chickadee and a nuthatch. Ed, Barbara and family are avid hikers and like to know something about what they’re seeing along the way.

This program is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Roanoke and the Roanoke Group of the Sierra Club. Programs are held on the second Friday of each month at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2015 Grandin Road SW, in Roanoke at the intersection with Brandon Avenue. Snacks for the social time before & after the presentation are welcome but not required. For more information contact:  Bob Egbert at canyonlake76@gmail.com

ALL PROGRAMS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

CLIMATE & CLEAN ENERGY RALLIES

We gather outside at our street corner one Sunday each month to show our support for climate protection and clean, renewable, energy.

In spite of the cold, we took it to the street again on December 10th.
