Annual Giving Drive
Creating, Widening, Celebrating The Circle of Love!
This is the time of year when we invite you to consider your financial commitment in the form of making an annual pledge to Boise UU. Your pledges help support the mission and vision of this beloved community and all of our programs, ministries, and operations. This year’s theme is “The Circle of Love” inviting us to reflect on how we help create and widen that circle, welcoming and nurturing those seeking a spiritual community where all have a place at the table. We extend that welcome out into the world through acts of service, public witness, advocacy and justice recognizing that our commitment to radical love and hospitality extends beyond our walls even as we support those within. And now, more than ever, the world needs our voices of hope, love, and justice.
As Unitarian Universalists, we are in the business of changing lives. On some level we have committed ourselves to this fellowship to create wholeness, healing, and transformation in our own lives, in the lives of this community, and in the world. When we give, we say YES to that vision, mission, and possibility. YES to being co-creators in that transformation.
This church belongs to each of us and it is supported almost entirely through the annual pledges of its members and friends. We give to support not only its daily operations and all of the vital programs and ministry like worship, religious exploration, music and small groups; but also to ensure its legacy for the future. Generosity is a deeply rooted spiritual practice, one that reminds us when we give, we receive just as much—the two are inextricably linked. With your pledges for 2017-2018 we can create a circle of love that not only sustains us, but ripples out beyond where our eyes can see, touching hearts, minds, and spirits; transforming lives!
