The Mattatuck Unitarian Universalist Society , 122South Pomperaug Avenue in Woodbury, CT will feature Bob Taylor as its speaker on Sunday, March 4, 2012 at 10:30 am. Taylor is the president of the Community Services Council of Woodbury. He will share his perspectives and experiences over the past four years, in serving our neighbors in need at the Woodbury Food Bank and the council.
The society has embarked on a project to address the fundamental challenge of hunger in its community, in the local and regional area. It has formed task forces in the areas of service, advocacy, education, witness and community organizing to address this complex issue.
Taylor’s speech is entitled, “We are Called”. He will talk about our universal callings to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters in a spirit of compassion and respect for the value of every human being. Taylor offers his participation in the service with the hope that all will find inspiration and strength to carry on this important work.
The society wants to work collaboratively with others, at learning about and addressing issues of hunger. “We are eager to contribute our time and service at a variety of levels all the while knowing that we do not have answers or solutions. Nonetheless, we hope that our efforts will prove meaningful and helpful to those who struggle with hunger every day, “said Rev. Jeanne Lloyd, minister of MUUS.
The public is welcome to the service. Refreshments will be available after the service.
