Expectations, Yearnings, and Goals

Rev Jonalu Johnstone speaks.  What we expect and what we long for are not always the same.  What’s more, wanting something to happen is far from achieving it.  In the gap sit our goals, the concrete aims we put our minds and hearts into accomplishing.  This is true for us as individuals, as families, and as organizations.  We’ll consider this broadly, and also as we conclude our Next Steps Weekend, wonder what it means for us as a congregation. Convener is Mark Clarke at

5:15 pm -6:30 pm Next Steps Weekend   UUFM, Manhattan KS

Our Fellowship has been considering the purchase of a different building.  Though several questions and concerns about that remain, one stands out.  How would we pay for it–both in terms of purchase and on-going expenses?  To help us address these questions, our Board has invited a consultant to help us in financial planning.   Barry Finkelstein will spend Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 20 thru 22, with us to conduct a Next Steps Weekend program.  Barry meets with staff on Friday evening, September 20.  Members and friends are urged to join us on Saturday, September 21, from 2 to 3:15 pm, for an interactive sharing session at the Fellowship.  Barry will sum up his weekend findings during an open session following the service on Sunday, September 22.
