“The gospel of Archy and Mehitabel part 2
The Christmas edition“
Our story so far: Archy the cockroach was the literary creation of Don Marquis (1878—1937), a New York newspaper columnist. Archy had once been a human poet, but he died and was reincarnated as an insect. With the assistance of Marquis and Marquis’s office typewriter, Archy produced about 20 years’ worth of witty poems about himself and other denizens of Shinbone Alley — chief among them being Mehitabel the alley cat, who claims she was once Cleopatra. Archy’s poems revealed both his critical sense and his charitable heart, giving evidence that he had actually read the Sermon on the Mount at least once. Now Archy is back at the keyboard after an 80-year absence. Starting a few months ago he’s been sending out a steady stream of poems from firstname.lastname@example.org. It should come as no surprise that Archy has something to say about the holiday season. What’s the yuletide message from the gospel of the Church of Archy, and how does Mehitabel figure into it?

Today’s story is called “This is the stable.” The children will explore the Christian Christmas story, as well as the 2nd UU principle, Be kind in all you do.
The beautiful quilts displayed on the sides of our page were created by our quilters, who meet second and fourthThursday every month. They, along with the Hummingbird quilters of Sierra Vista donate the quilts to people in need. The quilters are Karen Horton, Jean Mackeen, Ellie Waters, Susie Fawcett, Sue Speicher, Jan Boucher, Rosie Carpenter, and Georgia Nielson. If you have an interest in quilting, contact Karen Horton. No experience needed. It’s a great opportunity to learn a new skill, and make new friends while doing good work.
After the Service: Join us for coffee and conversation, so we can get to know you and you can get to know us. A number of us like to go out to lunch.
