Getting a new school year off to a good start can influence children’s attitude, confidence, and performance both socially and academically. The transition from August to September can be difficult for both children and parents. Even children who are eager to return to class must adjust to the greater levels of activity, structure, and, for some, pressures associated with school life.
Summer time no longer means missing the inspiration and connectedness from Sunday mornings at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and Church.
Summer programs will be a little more informal and will include time for sharing, readings, music, the opportunity to come together for reflection and connection, and of course coffee and tea. Activities for children will be provided.
Many Sunday mornings will include time to reflect on a short piece out of From Zip Lines to Hosaphones: Dispatches from the Search for Truth and Meaning by Jane Ranney Rzepka. This delightful book has short essays “reminding us of the depth and breadth of seeing life through UU eyes.” The author has an amazing ability to make every day events illustrate how life is full of possibilities.
Join them each Sunday morning at 10:30 at the Bismarck Mandan UU Fellowship & Church at 818 E. Divide Ave. in Bismarck. Call the church if you would like more information or have questions, 701-223-6788.
Almost Heaven, North Dakota

Younger than the rivers, flowing like a dream

It is hard to know what the city does with it, but they are removing it each week.”
It’s summertime – and that means lots of time outside, soaking up the sun. After all, summer is short in North Dakota – we need to take advantage of it, right? And the sun’s rays make us feel good, and in the short term, make us look good. What harm can it do?
