January 20 – Gratitude

Donna McCartney, Worship Associate

“Gratitude is one of the strongest and most transformative states of being. It shifts your perspective from lack to abundance and allows you to focus on the good in your life, which in turn pulls more goodness into your reality.” ~ Jen Sincero. This Sunday we are exploring the idea of gratitude and its importance in our life. Come ready to share one reason why you are grateful.

January 27 – Homelessness in Laguna and OC: New Challenges and Accomplishments

Dawn Price, Guest Speaker
Rachel Daniels, Worship Associate

Join us for Social Justice Sunday when Dawn Price, Executive Director of the Friendship Shelter in Laguna Beach, returns to update us on what is going on at the Shelter and at the Alternative Sleeping Location (ASL). We’ll get a look at the new challenges, goals and accomplishments in helping the homeless locally. UUFLB has been serving meals at ASL for decades. The Friendship Shelter’s goal is to end homelessness, one person at a time, in South OC. Toward that end, the Friendship Shelter has recently added more than 80 units of Permanent Supportive Housing in South OC, with more units currently in development. Dawn has spent most of her 35-year career serving human services and educational organizations. In addition to being Executive Director of the Friendship Shelter, Dawn currently serves as Vice Chair of the Continuum of Care Board for the County of Orange. Please join us!
