Fragrance-Free Area: In response to a request from the congregation the Coordinating Team has designated the first three pew rows of the sanctuary on the pulpit (west) side as a fragrance-free area. Anyone is welcome to sit in that area if they refrain from using fragrances for the comfort of others who are allergic or chemically sensitive.

An Invitation from the Board of Trustees: Early on the Board of Trustees meeting agenda, there is a "Listening" time. UUCB members are invited to let the Board know what is on their minds with regard to the Church. Since the agenda is usually very full, each person is asked to take no more than two minutes. Also, it is not required, but we would appreciate a written copy of what you say so that it can be part of the official record of the meeting. The next meeting is at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs. Jan. 17.
Roy Zimmerman: Wake Up Call concert on Sunday, January 20, 1:00 p.m. $18 or pay what you can. Roy Zimmerman is an endangered species - a satirical songwriter. Yes, funny songs are everywhere, but Zimmerman's hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable. "He simultaneously inspires me and makes me laugh my ass off," says comedian/author Paul Krassner.
Zimmerman's "Wake Up Call" is ninety minutes of these songs - funny songs like "Abstain With Me" and "I Want a Marriage Like They Had In the Bible," heartfelt songs like "Hope, Struggle and Change" and "I Approve This Message," and impassioned comic commentary.
In thirteen albums over twenty years, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records, and he's been profiled on NPR's "All Things Considered." His YouTube videos have amassed over seven million views, and he's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
In 2012, Roy and his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby traveled 47,000 miles to complete a 50-state tour of all 49 states. (Hawaii was "Omission Accomplished," he says.) "Wake Up Call" is a funny, tuneful and unabashedly Progressive look at what they saw and heard across America in the Obama Era.
