A brief talk exploring barriers and opportunities for everyday kindness–enough to prime small group discussions with our guests from out of town. We’ll distribute kindness cards that can be explored and used later.
The address is: 312 Government St, Taylors Falls, MN.ย  The directions are: Hwy 8, cross the St. Croix River, at the stoplight go UP the hill to the right (NOT continuing on Hwy 8) and watch carefully on the left for the Community Center. (I think it’s just at the top of the bluff.) Jim Price of SCFUU will give a brief talk and there will be small group discussions. A potluck will follow; St. Croix Fallsย  said they will provide all the food but I’m sure edible contributions will be welcome.
Please attend if you can.ย  Judy Barisonzi will facilitate car-pooling. Please contact her is you need a ride or can offer a ride.

Sunday, April 15th Schedule- CANCELLED

Hello Unitarian Univeralists! The BHUU has decided to cancel the forum and service for tomorrow, Sunday the 15th.

We would rather be safe than sorry with this beautiful, but potentially dangerous weather. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish you a very merry Sunday!
