Thank You for Your Help!
For the past few weeks, there have been some difficulties in which some people were not receiving emails sent from the firstname.lastname@example.org account. It appears that most of the problem has been solved - at least, there have been no new instances of not receiving the eNews. If you are still getting double emails from UUFCM, please reply to this week's eNews with just the message 'Got It'. If you get two eNews emails, please reply to both. Kirsten has developed a list of those receiving from the UUFCM account, but sends duplicates to everyone else. Thanks again for your help and your patience!
“We are much involved, all of us, with questions about things that matter a good deal today but will be forgotten by this time tomorrow — the immediate wheres and whens and hows that face us daily at home and at work — but at the same time we tend to lose track of the questions about things that matter always, life-and-death questions about meaning, purpose, and value. To lose track of such deep questions as these is to risk losing track of who we really are in our own depths and where we are really going.”
~ Frederick Buechner
