Adventure Playground Brings Community Together

Adventure Playground Brings Community Together

This Sunday, we’ll think about and discuss the concept of the shrinking middle class, and action that is being taken to address this concern.

Unitarian Universalist Fellow­ship of the Firelands, meeting in the lower level of First Congregational Church, 431 Columbus Ave., Sandusky will present “Adventure Playground” with Tricia O’Connor, at 10:30 a.m. Children’s Religious Education available. Enter through glass doors at rear of church and take elevator down. A liberal religion that embraces diversity.

Below, you will find some reading to introduce you to the background subject about which Tricia will be speaking on Sunday.

Do you agree there has been a growing division between the upper and lower class in the Firelands area? What can be done to help bridge this gap?

The Times article (Excerpt)
“Putnam’s Times article discussed the loss of connection and community and the widening divide between the privileged and the poor, and created much discussion in Port Clinton. Many of Port Clinton’s civic and education leaders responded that the portrayal was in some ways unfair, in particular the Times’ lead photo of the demolition of the old middle school, as the middle school has been replaced by a new middle school.”

See ‘Promised Land’ This Weekend with UUs!

“Promised Land” is hitting theatres nationwide this weekend, and we are proud to say that our friends & family helped make this film possible!

Be part of the national dialog on energy policy, hydraulic fracturing and the way it is impacting communities all across the country! Join us in watching this Oscar-nominated film, directed by Gus Van Sant (Goodwill Hunting), this Saturday at the Regal Cobblestone Square 20 Theatre Complex in Elyria, Ohio.
We will be attending the 1:50pm matinee showing ($7.50/ticket) & will probably go have coffee somewhere after for discussion and fellowship.

“Promised Land” Story Line (Running Time: 1hr 46min):
Corporate salesman Steve Butler (Matt Damon) arrives in a rural town with his sales partner, Sue Thomason (Francis McDormand). With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company’s offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski) who counters Steve both personally and professionally.

We hope to see you! However, if you are unable to attend, please visit https://eriecountyuu.com/ and check out our FACT & UUJO page to read more about our environmental/social justice initiatives & raising fracking awareness through our faith-based network of communities.
