Have other people's ideas about religion kept you from coming to church? Do you yearn for a loving, spiritual community where you can be inspired and encouraged as you search for your own truth and meaning? Find a home in the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Lubbock.
We are a church without creed or dogma where people with different beliefs worship together as one faith. The church has a rich history, with followers who were among our founding fathers such as John Adams, as well as leading literary figures such as Henry David Thoreau and social activists such as Susan B. Anthony. We welcome all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs.
We are a welcoming congregation.

Featured Newsletter Article
Common Read Group Met Feb. 16
And Continues through May16
By Sara McLarty "Half of all Americans eat out at least once a week. The restaurant has become our second kitchen...Take a look at who's behind the kitchen door, how they are treated, and why it matters."
This year’s Unitarian Universalist Association Common Read is Behind the Kitchen Door
by Saru Jayaraman, co-founder and co-director of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United and director of the Food Labor Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley. A Common Read is not a book club! Rather, it invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. One purpose is to build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful The Chalice Light January 19, 2014 Page 7 conversations. Another is to consider follow-up action, such as advocacy for just working conditions for restaurant workers.
We began as planned on Sunday, February 16, after the Pot Luck, with 14 people attending and discussing the first chapter. We helped ourselves to food for thought about how it is behind the kitchen door and what local action we might take to make it better for us when we dine out and better for restaurant workers—more than 10 million of them, nation-wide. We hope you join us at the next three meetings in the Abernethy Room, third Sundays, at 12:50 after Pot Luck, March 16, April 20, and May 18, two chapters each meeting. The next two chapters we will discuss are “Real Sustainability, Please,” and “Serving While Sick,” first discussion led by Gay Hedges, second by Rita Chamblin. Copies of the book can be ordered from the UUA Bookstore for $21.95 at www.uuabookstore.org
