HomeStretch Happenings

Talaya Parker will bring our CUC lesson this week. She is the Executive Director of HomeStretch, one of our CUC ministry partners. “HomeStretch Happenings” will be the topic of her lesson. CUC has been actively involved with Homestretch since its beginning. It will be interesting to see how this local ministry has grown and serves deserving families from our community who need a “hand up rather than a handout”.

CUC President’s Message

Leslie D. Weatherhead, author of the highly-regarded book The Will of God, says that for three reasons being “within the will of God means peace.”

The third of those reasons is that “in his will our conflicts are resolved.” “The soul that is unconscious of any conflict would be one ceasing to recognize a clash of good and evil…The guiding principle ‘I will do God’s will as far as I can see it’ answers many of our conflicts and brings peace and strength….By facing our conflicts and deliberately making our choice, by directing all our endeavors to one great purpose, confidently and fearlessly, the soul is restored to harmony and strength.”
