Meals on Wheels - OFF SITE

Are you looking for a satisfying way to live our church's ideal of Connect, Grow, Serve?  Do you have a friend you would like to see regularly?  Are you seeking a way to participate in some meaningful community action? Meals on Wheels is for you!

Congregants from UUCA deliver meals on the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month. Many of us arrange to do a route with a friend, giving us a guaranteed time to be together to chat as we make our rounds.  Parents sometimes find this activity a good one to do with children, especially during summer break. When we do the same route for several months, we also get to know the clients, who nearly always seem grateful to converse with a visitor. We serve a diverse population of clients in South Arlington who live in single family homes as well as in high rise and garden apartments. They represent the ethnic and racial diversity of South Arlington, where people from over 100 nations live. Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer is a perfect example of an outreach activity that enables participants to Connect—with fellow congregants as well as the clients, Grow—in knowledge of and sensitivity to others, and Serve—in a very tangible and important way.
   
The time commitment is from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.  The meals are delivered to the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church at 601 N. Vermont St., with the driveway off Carlin Springs Road, a block from Ballston Common.  We go in teams of two, one driver, and one to run the meals in to the clients.  When you sign up, we ask you indicate which of these  you prefer, or say 'either' if it does not matter.

Tina Hinh and Sara Anderson
are the coordinators of the UUCA MoW volunteers.  Please contact us:  Sara: rayandsara@aol.com or 703-532-3830; Tina: tinahinh@gmail.com.  Email Sara and Tina to add your name to the volunteer list serve.

Getting to Know Ta-Nehisi Coates: a 21st Century View
Photo w/ Atlantic article
Reparations!  What a loaded word!  Ta-Nehisi Coates confronts this topic head-on in an Atlantic Monthly article “The Case for Reparations.”  As we read about redlining, poverty, crime, and other factors, how do we react? Find this article at  https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/06/the-case-for-reparations/361631/.

Or, learn more about Mr. Coates and his book Between the World and Me by reading the article “A Generation Waking Up” by Brit Bennett at http://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/ta-nehisi-coates-and-a-generation-waking-up.  

Both articles address our history and how history affects black and white American.

The class is designed to be inclusive for all levels of yoga, from new to experienced. 

Class begins as 6:30 and ends at 7:20, giving you time to gently transition to the guided meditation with Jonathan at 7:30.

Buddhist Meditation Class - Sanctuary

meditation mindfulnessClasses focus on sitting and walking meditation, different aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, and how to bring the practice into everyday life. Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself. No fee, but donations accepted. Instructor is Jonathan Foust of the Insight Meditation Community of  Washington. See Jonathan's website for more information and class schedule here.
