raising event which is open to the public. For $5 dollars, participants
are invited to partake of “all the soup they can eat”, as well as to
purchase additional to take with them; the funds raised at this event go
towards enabling some of the local Blue Hills UU humanitarian efforts.

neighbor Dr. Steve Carlson of Shell Lake will visit Blue Hills UU on
November 10th to share his experience with modern Quakers: what they
believe, how they conduct their business, and how they act in society.
In an informal forum Steve will share his spiritual journey,
which began as a Lutheran. Sequentially, he became an atheist, an
agnostic, a person interested in Eastern religions, followed by a return
to the Lutheran church, then to the Methodists before he finally became
a full member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Eau
Claire. The morning promises to stimulate thoughtful discussion and
A short time for fellowship and light nourishment will follow the 10:00 a.m. service. All are welcome at Blue Hills UU.
One of the tenets of being a Universalist-Unitarian is the stand taken “in the service of justice”; our national UU Service Committee advances human rights through grassroots collaborations. Sunday, November 3rd, member Linda Thompson will talk about the work of our organization, and kick off for our own yearly “Guest at Your Table” project.
The Service begins at 10:00 a.m., followed by a time for gathering and light snacks in the Fellowship Hall. Blue Hills UU is a welcoming congregation located at 230 W Messenger in Rice Lake, and we invite all to attend.
