Although hearing is the first sense we develop, even before we are born, listening and connecting by really hearing the deep truth of another person is a skill we cultivate through our lifetimes. Let us explore the various ways we listen, how our hearing can deepen connection, and how together in our listening and hearing we bring our creative power to the world.
January Drive for Joseph's House
As we have done the past 3 years COW will be collecting items for Joseph's House of Camden. Joseph's House is committed to offering temporary shelter and services to homeless men and women of Camden. Read about them here https://www.jhoc.org/.
There are many ways to support Joseph's house, we are focusing on items in demand this time of year, ADULT winter hats, gloves, scarves, ADULT socks and underwear male and female all sizes. You can drop off items in the COW bin in Unitarian House or have items delivered to the church. The drive for Joseph's House will continue through January 31st. Thank you for your continued support.
Covid Task Force Update
As you are aware, the Omicron variant is rapidly spreading in our area. The Covid Task Force has been watching the numbers and the Risk Level in Camden, Burlington and Gloucester Counties is now listed as Severe.
In order to keep the congregation safe, the Task Force has recommended, and the Board agrees, that we suspend all in-person gatherings and continue all our activities (meetings, classes, rehearsals, worship) in virtual mode only. We will continue to monitor the Risk Level and look forward to returning to in-person gatherings when we are more safely able to do so.
January Split Plate - Cherry Hill Food Pantry
This month’s plate collection will be split evenly between UUCCH and Hopeworks. All cash, and checks, and online/text giving, unless indicated for some other purpose (e.g. Stewardship) will be divided.
We are a group of 12 Religious congregations (including UUCCH) & community groups who volunteer time & energy and donate food and money to support our mission of supplying groceries & related social services to 500 families in need per month in Cherry Hill & surrounding communities. We have an open market where families may choose their food (frozen meat, fresh vegs & fruit, bread & many packaged goods.)

Healthy Boundaries in Congregations – A Two-Part Workshop
Each of us have different understanding of what boundaries are, where they are, and how they are implemented in our lives. This program explores the unique challenges and ultimate benefits of boundaries in congregational community. Through presentation, conversation, and case studies, we will explore how boundaries can deepen the health of your congregation and model it well for a world that desperately needs more models for healthy relationship. Rev. Sunshine Wolfe is a certified facilitator in Healthy Boundaries with the Faith Trust Institute and Rev. Sana Saeed has completed Healthy Boundaries training. This workshop is being offered on Zoom in two segments, and registration includes both parts, even if you can only attend one. The Zoom link will be sent out to those registered. The link and dates are in the Newsgram.
