The Seven Eight Principles

  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

  8. And Restoration's Eighth Principle... We affirm and promote the following 8th Principle:

    Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by building a diverse, multicultural Beloved Community that by our actions accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Service Auctions: Fun and Fundraising

2017: Alice in Wonderland: March Madness

Our Auction's theme for 2017 was Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland," plus "Through the Looking Glass". Both are satires on politics, royalty, mathematics and academia, fascinating for adults as well as children. Members and friends dressed up characters from either of the books - we had white rabbits, the Queen's playing card gardeners, mad hatters and a couple of Alices prepared to play croquet complete with flamingoes and hedgehogs. Great fun was had by all! We ate a lovely English dinner prepared by Steve W. and Mike F., and raised $7890.00 so far for the church.
