Captured by Capturing Cape Cod

This was our church’s annual Memorial Day retreat at the Cape Cod Sea Camps. It seems we and two other church groups do this annually, although as discrete cliques.

At the annual meeting of the UU Urban Ministry she was one who spoke of what the UUUM meant to her. She and her family volunteer at the youth programs in Roxbury and mentor a young girl. It’s a great example of living out faith rather than just checkbook liberalism.

At a session break at the meeting, I asked introduced myself to Lisa and asked whether she was headed to the retreat. She was and agreed to tell our group about her family’s involvement with the UUUM. She then did at the Sunday lay-led worship. Her husband, Hill, joined her and I hope inspired one or more of the Brookline couples to dare the inner city for some doing good. Plus, we had actually encounters beyond nodding chins among the two groups.
