Lots of comings and goings in our family. Our sweet
mama, Mary Elizabeth Caldwell Manire Short (Beth,
Snookie, Patches!), breathed her last breath in this
world today, July 11, 2017, peacefully, with me, Danny,
and hospice by her side. Her one fear at going was that
she wouldn’t be able to tell everyone she knew and
loved how much she loved and cherished them. I’m
telling you now. Rest assured she is joyfully dancing in
the arms of my beloved daddy, Hubert and that she will
take her new position, as guardian angel to us all very
seriously! I would say “Rest in Peace” but that was not
her way! “Get up and go, we have things to do, places to
go, people to laugh with”, was the way she lived her 96
years! Thank you all for the love and concern you have
showered us with. We are blessed!
Jane, Larry, Bryan, Steve Manire and all!
After the July 9th presentation by Suzie Bell of ECHO, several members expressed an
interest in showing support for their new project to create a sustainable village with
affordable housing for some of our community’s most vulnerable people.
If you care to contribute you can make out your check to EUUF, and mail it to 17 Elk
Street, Eureka Springs, AR 72632. Please put ECHO on the comment line. We will give
everyone a couple of weeks and then send a donation to ECHO from the Fellowship.
from the 56th UU General Assembly
“Challenging extreme inequality
is a moral imperative.”
“… injustices that our faith movement
is committed to addressing:
from economic injustice;
from migrant injustice;
to climate change;
from sexual and gender injustices
to attacks on voting rights.”
“All forms of oppression or privilege
intersect and contribute to
inequity and inequality.”
“Our UU faith demands that we respond
to economic injustice and advocate
for those among us who
are being harmed by inequity.”
“We strive to build communities
where everyone is supported in living
safe, safe, and sustainable lives.”
“Buddhists acknowledge the poisonous nature of greed.
Islam asserts that the principle of justice must be
at the core of economic activities.
The Tao Te Ching states that if you chase after money and security,
your heart will never unclench.
Judaism teaches that poverty is an unjustifiable burden.
Our UU roots teach that we should love our
neighbors as ourselves.”

We know we don't have all the answers. Here, we can at least share our questions. And here, we can share a lot more than that: we can share our thoughts and ideas, we can share our pain and our hope. Here, we can remember that we are not alone. - Rev. Evan Keely, UU Minister
