Dear UULMNJ Family,
All of us are still in shock about the horrible tragedy in Newtown, CT. Our congregations around the state are responding with many worship, pastoral and public opportunities to mourn and to support victims families. This is a time to gather in spirit, for none of us is immune to the impact of this. We encourage you to take the time to express whatever you are feeling, to utilize the pastoral presence of your UU community and to be present at the public vigils at this time. We also encourage you to celebrate the holidays with renewed appreciation for family and friends, for life lives on through us.
I have had many requests concerning the UULMNJ response to gun control in New Jersey. The UULMNJ board will be meeting this week to discuss how we can best react in a sustained, state-wide response to gun control and the violence it creates. We will be back to you with our plans in the weeks to come.
In the mean time, may you find peace, joy and serenity during this season.
