The GNUUC Social Responsibility group serves as a catalyst for peace and social justice to realize the seven UU principles within our fellowship, our country, and the global community.
The Social Action Committee supports and guides our work with the UU Service Committee, plans theme Sundays, and supports the Second Harvest Food Bank, Room in the Inn, and the Interfaith Alliance of Middle Tennessee.
Meetings are the 2nd Sunday of the month, from 12:45 - 1:45 p.m. in the Credo Conference Room. All are welcome, but agenda items must be submitted at least two days prior to meeting. Contact:
A Chalice Lighter is a person, a couple, or even a group of people who pledges to respond with a contribution when the call comes that it’s time to light a chalice within the Thomas Jefferson District. Calls support specific growth initiatives in individual TJ District congregations. No more than three times a year, you will receive a letter explaining who has applied for a call and what the funds will be used for. You can contribute any amount $10 or above.
GNUUC has received Chalice Lighter grants twice, once when we were trying to hire a full-time minister and again when we bought our own building. Each grant was for more than $15,000. We may want to apply for another grant to create a children’s play area and a minister’s office. The more Chalice Lighters we have, the better it looks when we apply. Please contact Larry Romans (228-2509; firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to be added as a Chalice Lighter.
The Nashville Peace and Justice Center is a community based coalition of organizations and individuals working to promote equity and to create a peaceful, just, and sustainable society through reflection, education, and non-violent action.
