Each year at this time, friends and families in our congregation participate in Guest at Your Table — a 40-year UU tradition. By bringing home a beautiful Stories of Hope booklet and Guest at Your Table envelope, families and individuals learn about how the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee puts our shared values into action. Through a potent combination of advocacy, education, and partnerships with grassroots human rights leaders, UUSC promotes workers’ rights, upholds the human right to water, and protects communities at risk.
Through the Stories of Hope booklet, we connect with leaders throughout the world who are working hard for human rights in partnership with UUSC. Households are invited to share Guest at Your Table materials when family and friends gather together, reflect on the contributions of these “guests” toward justice, and share generously. Each week, we can choose a different story to read, bringing our guests to life and helping celebrate our own rights.
Sharing our blessings through Guest at Your Table ensures that UUSC’s human rights work continues. Please consider making contributions throughout the program, to collect enough to be eligible for the matching grant: any donation of $125 or more is eligible to be matched dollar for dollar, thanks to a generous grant by the UU Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, N.Y. This means you could double the impact of your gift!
Please be sure to pick up your Stories of Hope booklet and envelope. If you prefer, you can make your contribution online at uusc.org/givetoguest. Our Guest at Your Table program will run from November 9th until December 21st. You can mail your donation or bring it to a service and the SAC will mail it for you.
