UU Eco-Action Challenge! The worship theme for April is “Care of the Earth.” Earth Day is April 22nd, so let’s celebrate with the UU Eco Action Challenge!  While we are keeping our distance from friends and neighbors, we can still get out of the house and clean up our neighborhoods.  Lots of trash has blown around during the winter. So, when you are out for a walk, please pick up some trash. Although the city is currently not recycling, if you are able to store aluminum cans and plastic bottles, hang onto them for future recycling.  Questions or suggestions for other eco-actions? Email info@uucasper.org.

Minister’s Musing, from Reverend Leslie Kee:

“The Covid-19 virus causes a dreadful illness to which every human being in every community around the world is susceptible. Because we are able to monitor its movements, its infection rates, the disruption of daily life, and of course its death toll, we are beginning to understand what the word ‘pandemic’ really means. We are also being challenged to think about what the word ‘we’ really means.” Follow this link to continue reading Reverend Kee’s message for April 2020.

The UU Casper Care Circle, under the guidance of Rev. Kee, continues to contact members and friends to ask how everyone is doing and how we can help. If you are in a non-high-risk group and have time to help out occasionally for things like picking up and delivering groceries, meals or prescriptions, please contact Reverend Kee (contact information below), or email info@uucasper.org.

The Minister’s Discretionary Fund is available to assist with emergency needs. Contact Rev. Kee for more information (lkee@wyoming.com, 307-340-0697).
