  1. WORSHIP SERVICE: THINGS I’D TELL MY SON, 10 AM, JULY 15

What are the life lessons that we would like to share with our young adult off-spring, if only they’d listen? In her Pulitzer Prize winning book, One of Ours, Willa Cather says: “The dead might as well try to speak to the living as the old to the young.” While that’s not completely true, it is hard to impart our own learned wisdom to others through words. Come, listen and judge for yourself.

  1. NORTHWEST IS MOVING TO GOOGLE DRIVE

As part of our commitment to collaboration and inclusion, Northwest will transition from Box to Google Drive for document sharing starting on August 14. The primary advantages of Google Drive are:

  • Sharing documents on an unrestricted basis is simpler;
  • Directly editing documents in Google Drive requires only a web browser;
  • Newcomers joining in on existing committees and projects are much more likely to already be familiar with Google Drive.

We will be sharing a link to the new NWUUC Google Drive “umbrella folder” as we get closer to August 14. Please contact our office administrator, Shirley Banks, at office@nwuuc.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Your Gardens and Spaces Team is holding a workday on Saturday, July 14, from 9 am to 1 pm. All are invited to join us for fellowship while helping keep our home in the woods in good shape. There will be a variety of jobs to suit your interests and abilities. This is a great way to make new friends and catch up with old ones. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

A memorial service for Dick Holland will be held Saturday, July 14, at 2 pm at The Church of the Epiphany, 2089 Ponce de Leon Ave, NE, Atlanta,30307. Dick and his late wife Dot were founding members of Northwest.

  1. 7. LUUNCH BUUNCH EXPLORES LIFE IN ZAMBIA, JULY 18

Ever been to Zambia?  Want to know more about life in Zambia? Our LUUnch BUUnch program will be led by congregation member Bob Kent. He spent his teenage years growing up in Zambia (mostly), with some time in Kenya, Congo and South Africa. He describes them as interesting times and will compare life then and now. This will be an interactive discussion with time for questions and answers.

Reservations are not required. Bring your lunch and convene in the art gallery at 11:45 am. We’ll begin with lunch, introductions and personal updates. The program will end at 1:15 pm. You may come late or leave early, as your schedule dictates.

Or just come to the gathering in the art gallery to meet other group members and join in the fun.
