Sunday, October 20th the Share the Plate recipient will be Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network. The Network’s dream is for all people who are imprisoned to know they are inherently Worthy Now of love and justice. Worthy Now is also called to be a community resource: creating common space for all of us to connect online, share ideas and resources, and provide/receive training. By uniting, we can grow stronger in our work to end mass incarceration. NTUUC will match the first $5000 contributed by North Texans. You may write a check to Horizon with Worthy Now on the memo line any time in the month of October. Or GIVE on-line and put Worthy Now in Additional Info. Learn more at worthynow.org. In September, Horizon collected $1,585 for the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal. Thank you!

Chalice Lighters is a way for individuals and congregations to support and be generous with one another to work on transformational goals. Chalice Lighter calls are crowd-funded contributions given by committed UU "Chalice Lighters" and Southern Region congregations. Become a Chalice Lighter by joining the Chalice Lighter email list and respond with a contribution when a call goes out. Horizon received the Fall 2018 Chalice Lighter call for the Southwest area to provide start-up funds for the community garden. Now it’s our turn to give back. The Fall 2019 Chalice Lighter call for the Mid-South area will help Georgia Mountains Unitarian Universalist Church in Dahlonega, GA build a new church home on their recently purchased 5-acre property.
