After two years of conversation (ok, it was a very slow conversation) and feedback, we are pleased to share ERUUF’s new covenant. Many thanks to Paul Baerman who took all our notes and ideas and shaped them into a brief, simple statement that highlights what’s most important.
This is a living document, created from our values and shared commitments. Groups, teams and committees are encouraged to use this to share the spirit that informs their work. And we’ll use it in services and on special occasions, and we’ll check in on it in the future to see what updates might be right at that time.

All of us together - members and friends along with staff - form the beating heart of ERUUF, and it's time once again to check our Pulse! The ERUUF Board of Trustees would like feedback about life at ERUUF. The Pulse Survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is open from February 1st through February 28th. Our Board and staff use this information to help guide the Congregation’s efforts going forward. This year, the Pulse Survey includes some focused questions about ERUUF's strategic goal of becoming a Green Sanctuary. Come by the table at Coffee Hour to chat with members of the Committee on the Evaluation of Ministry who will arrange for you to complete the survey on the spot or click link below. Questions? Contact Julie Edmunds, .

Nevertheless, We Persist in NC
by Rev. Deborah Cayer
Are you ready for this year’s HKonJ? I sure am. The acronym stands for the NC NAACP’s “Historic Thousands (Roman numeral K) on Jones (Street) in Raleigh. In a couple weeks on Saturday, February 10 we can expect to meet up on Jones with several thousand fellow North Carolinians to let our elected officials know that we are vigilant about civil rights for every person, and we’re not letting any slip away without a fight.
We’ve been here before. In blistering heat, howling wind, pouring rain, bitter cold, we’ve persistently shown up for civil rights time and again, whenever we were needed, which infuriatingly has been much too often in the past several years.

Intentionally, on Purpose
by Rev. Deborah Cayer, Lead Minister
The sky this new year has been the pure, clear blue that comes when arctic air rushes down from the North Pole and sweeps it clean. It appears overhead like a bright fresh page that could hold any great vision, every resolution and best intention. But once imagined up above the fray of our everyday world, how do we bring these visions and ideals down to earth, and make them real amid the chaos and mess of regular life?

Deep Wells Require Tending
by Rev. Deborah Cayer, Lead Minister
How is it with your spirit? What’s holding you in balance after big losses? Amid big political and climate changes? What’s holding you steady in the times when life doesn’t unfold as you had expected?
Me? I’ve been walking a lot more. I’ve reduced my intake of the news and have limited my time on Facebook. I try to read balanced reporting from reliable sources. I talk with friends and family as much as possible. I’m eating more salad and less carbs, and most nights manage to sleep for eight hours.
