    Figuratively/Literally on the Move? – Keep Connected!

    “Life is a Journey”, and, “You Can’t Take it With You”: True AND False Striking out on new adventures – whether moving around the block or across the country – also means leaving your youth group behind, where deep relationship and spiritual connection are built right in. And though you may miss the support youth groups provide, an exciting part of this transition is the opportunity to discover how to join with other UUs to express your faith in a new way – in your way.

    Massachusetts – Immigration Mayhem!

    Controversy Breaks out at the Mass. State House Surrounding Immigrant Minors By Olivia McCormack and Chloe Ockey As a part of our Youth Justice Training in Boston, offered by the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice (UUCSJ), one of the requirements was to intern at a social justice organization. In our case, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Our UUA liason (Susan Leslie) took us to the Massachusetts State House to view and observe the photo exhibit later mentioned in this post.   An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them. Transnational gangs…
