2010.09.10(Fri)2300- very short notice (so don't expect many RSVPs) but I just heard about this event and it's cool. Being in S. OC, I probably can't go (unless I find a carpool) but hopefully some UU do.
L6CBY8:* =While the founders & leaders of this group are Unitarian Universalists(UU) and this group is done in the spirit of UU (minus the politics), the names “Unitarian Universalist” and “Unitarian Universalism” and “UU” are not owned by this group and while this group would like to be endorsed by the name owners, in the meantime this group runs independently and by its own funding and no official affiliation, connection, association, approval, endorsement, or sponsorship by the name owners should be assumed. However, for everyone's benefit, I strongly encourage you to encourage the name owners to endorse us!
This chapter and parent organization fully matches UU guidelines as best as known,
so is awaiting official UU endorsement — why this group's currently Private
(though temporarily public to share this weekend's community events protesting Quran burning).
So you can see everything, and be ready & notified at that time, and show your support, Please join now! —you can signup using your Facebook login. L6FAFG
“STRONGLY "YOUNG ADULT": Networking & connections (#1), building relationships of all sorts (friends, family, romance, business, & spiritual), dating/singles, hot music & tunes, adventure, partying, dancing, singing, clubbing, outdoors, sports, military, political debate, social action, personal growth, career & family starting, college & trade-school, high tech & modern (Meetup.com & Web 2.0, smartphones, YouTube, Twitter), discovery, travel, and more!”
“BEING A UUYA! MEMBER AND POSTER IS FREE (free to join, free to post, free photo & profile directory of all members, etc, and no tithing required!), thanks to the chapter's head organizer who pays ~$15/mo so this is
HOSTED ON MEETUP.COM, the leading local-group web-hosting service, operating world-wide, and outperforming Yahoo Groups, Facebook Groups, eVite,... seeming everything. Meetup's like MySpace but IN-PERSON (face-to-face, what a "concept"! Meetup's goal is to MEET-UP!). And UNLIKE Facebook, Meetup respects your privacy (use a pseudonym or just first name), essential to protect your freedom of speech so your personal life doesn't permanently get onto your business resume and you can safely speak your mind, participate in controversial groups, and more.
And most events are free or quite inexpensive (if they are typical Meetup.com events).” And...
“If you're not a member of a physical UU congregation, or even if you've never heard of UU before, that's fine! If this group sounds like it could be a match, join!
To join, you need to Be “a UU or UU-curious Young Adult (appearing 18 to 30s) in the area OR a supporter”,
but you do NOT need to be a member of a physical UU congregation
--join a physical UU congregation only when you are ready, and when you found one you like!”
As we are a tiny group, it is critical here that you constructively speak-up and volunteer for something and ideally come up with Ideas! (use our Ideas menu). Including:
RSVP with constructive comments to our events (yes, ideally every event (there are only a few), yes even if you're not coming)
constructively saying "why" your coming or not and what disinterests & interests you in it. For instance, as our member Craig PRSVPed NO with “I will be out of town but I like the spirit of this. Thanks.”. Constructive comments are always appreciated, but especially important (and polite) when saying NO.
Being UU starts now: Live up to UU principles #1&2 (“The inherent worth and dignity of every person” & “Justice, equity and compassion in human relations”) and give constructive feedback & comments, especially in reply to an invite to a tiny group.
SO, ARE YOU A YOUNG ADULT in Orange County seeing some sense in UU thinking? OR DO YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE?
