Horizon Women’s Retreat
September 29-October 1, 2017
Friday evening through noon Sunday
Do you write, bake, quilt, draw, sing, encourage, dream, or listen? Come, share your way of expressing yourself. Learn new forms of expression and build a supportive community of women. How do you share your authentic self, your point of view? Come find your voice with us!
Horizon Women and Visitors age 21+, join us during this relaxing weekend where we can throw off responsibilities and get to know ourselves and others. The annual retreat is a great place to reconnect as well as meet new friends!
Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center in Glen Rose, TX is a beautiful retreat center with wooded areas, walking trails, and access to the Paluxy River. We stay in deluxe cabins and have access to a limited number of hotel-style rooms.

Horizon Ministers Education Fund
Thanks to a generous donation from Gordon and Patsy Roe, Horizon can establish a Ministers Education Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial support to members of Horizon and members of other Unitarian Universalist congregations pursuing a graduate course of study towards the Unitarian Universalist ministry or pursuing appropriate post-baccalaureate certification in a profession serving the UU mission (i.e., Lifespan Religious Education Director, Chaplaincy, etc.).
In the past, Horizon has supported members Jessica Purple Rodela and Frieda Gillespie, who are both currently serving UU congregations. The church also has a strong legacy as a teaching church, having mentored 10 ministerial interns including Rev. Lora. The establishment of the Horizon Ministers Education Fund is a testament to our history of supporting Unitarian Universalist religious professionals and an investment in the future of our faith. If you would like to donate to the fund, please contact Lora.

Tolle, Lege: Take Up & Read the Bible
Augustine of Hippo in his "Confessions" written between 397 - 400 CE declared that he heard a small voice saying "tolle, lege" as he was agonizing about his sinful life. Tolle, lege - take up, read! He opened the Bible and read a passage which changed his life. The same thing happened to me! But certainly not as dramatic. Growing up in the Unitarian Church, I did not know much about the Bible. In recent years I have learned a great deal about it and I intend to share some knowledge and my feelings about the Bible with you. UU's, let's take up and read the Bible. No longer should it be owned solely by literalists and fundamentalists.
