This Sunday: solving an immigration problem in Columbus

Bill Harlan will talk about Paz Amigos, a small local group that’s helping immigrants released from the Stewart Detention Center near Lumpkin. These men are dropped off in Columbus every week. They usually speak no English, they often have little or no money and many have no clear idea how to reach family or friends in the United States.

Bill is the president of our Fellowship. He’s retired as the communications director for a research laboratory, and he had a 30-year career as a journalist.

Our Sunday services begin at 11 a.m. but do join us for coffee, refreshments and conversation any time after 10:15 a.m.Services typically are centered on a talk—either by a member of our Fellowship, like Bill, or by a guest speaker. Services also include music, meditation and opportunities (always optional) to add your own thoughts. Unitarian Universalists (UUs) don’t share a creed. Rather, we support each other in our own free and responsible searches for truth and meaning. For us, dogma is less important than treating our fellow human beings with respect. And visitors are always welcome.
