Sermon by Rev Jay Wolin
With the recent overturning of Roe vs. Wade, many states are further limiting and even criminalizing abortion.

I will share some of the underlying theological thoughts that support that position and many of the underlying fears and myths surrounding these issues.

Thank you to all for participating
in this year's auction.
When can I pick up my winnings?
If you did not pick up your physical winnings yesterday, you can pick them up before and after the services on Sunday, Feb. 5.
How do I know what I won?
The auction team took a well-deserved break after the auction but will determine the winners of non-tangible items soon and will send notifications with invoices before Wednesday, 2/8.
How do I know what I owe and how do I pay?
Your email notification will include an invoice that has a link for you to pay online. The auction team begs you to use this link because you will save an enormous amount of work for them. The site you go to is safe and secure. You will be given the option to pay the bank fee that all credit cards charge and we hope you do so. Otherwise, the charge comes out of the proceeds to UUCS.
If you are unable to pay by credit card, you can pay by cash or check before and after the first service on Sunday, Feb. 12 and Sunday, Feb. 19.
