SPECIAL EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS:
A new move for UATL!!!!!!!!!!!! WE HAVE MOVED INTO A NEW SACRED SPACE! It’s located at the “Y” – 870 Emerald Bay Rd/Plaza 89 - Suites 204-208 (our space is in the building on the right side, 2nd floor), so now every time you pass it you can send love & blessings. If we love the space, we can have it for a minimum of 15 years.
Here is the link to our capital campaign thru CrowdRise:. You can share this link with friends and family, too -- perhaps, they would be happy to support what you love & get inspiration from – it couldn’t hurt to ask! The link & campaign info are also easily share-able from Unity at the Lake’s Facebook page. We’d like to thank the Parasol Foundation‘s Pay It Forward Fund for their donation of $2500.
OUR HOLY-DAY SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
24th Annual Bear-a-thon: This wonderful holyday tradition continues in our new home! Over the course of 3 Sundays beginning December 3rd, (through December 17th) bring a NEW, soft and cuddly stuffed animal to Sunday Celebrations. We’ll fill the Sanctuary with them, love them up, and then send them on to local fire and law enforcement agencies to give to children in need
Hands and Hearts for Christmas:We’re taking the year off from the huge shopping we usually do. We have over $200 from what you’ve already contributed this year and we’re donating that to LIveViolenceFree’s gift-giving program. Any further donations received will go to H & H 2018
Caroling at Barton’s Skilled Nursing Facility: another rewarding tradition at UATL, Sunday, December 17th…we’ll meet at 5pm in the main lobby of the hospital and walk down together to SNF
Sunday, December 24th: meditative service 10am
Christmas Eve:7-8:15pm special Celebration and Ceremony. Caroling will begin at 6:30 and we invite everyone to bring goodies to share
NEW YEARS EVE (Sunday Dec 31): We’ll have our regular 10am Sunday morning Celebration (with a Burning Bowl Ceremony), then from 7-8pm we’ll have a special meditation to ring in the new year
Transformational opportunity: We will be unpacking and getting settled in our new space probably for a few months to come. If you have a ½ hour-hour and want to come by during office hours you would be a blessing

An Invitation to Share Hospitality
Hospitality: It ’ s up to all of us ... if we each brought a “ little left - over ” that is in the fridge, we ’ d have a feast! AND IF WE EACH BROUGHT A LITTLE REAL FOOD, AND LESS SUGARY STUFF, OUR BODIES WOULD BE SOOOOO HAPPY, OUR CHILDREN WOULD GREATLY BENEFIT, AND THEIR PARENTS WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL, TOO!!!!!!
HEALING HAND TO MOTHER EARTH **Warm up your engine & car interior by driving instead of idling – changes in technology & electronic fuel injection have eliminated the need to warm up before driving in freezing temps
**Turn off your car ignition if you ’ re idling for more than 10 seconds - idling your car for more than 10 seconds burns more fuel than restarting your car. Turning off your engine to text, to wait for someone or when stopped for construction are easy ways to stop spewing smog/environment - killing carbon & nitrous dioxide & help the planet as well as our beloved Lake Tahoe
**If you have school - age children, ask the principal to enforce a no - idling policy for buses & cars waiting for school to be let out
YEP LEADERS NEEDED! If it is to be, it’s up to us: Now Seeking Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) leaders for our Sunday programs, so we can keep our program alive. You don’t need special skills, just a desire to celebrate/honor/have fun with our children. We have tons of resources & program ideas available, & we can help you get started. You can commit to leading programs as much or as little as you’d like. If you are interested, please contact Laura Staman ASAP at email@example.com, 530-307-3647, or talk to her at Celebration on Sundays
