Sunday April 28, 10:00 AM - Sunday Salon: What's the problem? For the last several meetings we've concluded that there are some major dysfunctionalities in our economic/social system. Come prepared to propose the keystone that's holding the whole structure up. There was some question as to whether we should read one of Frederick Engel's books to prepare for this. The small volume is titled "Socialism, Utopian and Scientific" also by Engels. It is not essential we read it.

About Our Fellowship
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Rocky Mount NC formed in March of 1998. We began our Religious Education programs in 2001, initiated an annual retreat in 2004, and formally organized in 2006. In 2007, we purchased our own building. In March 2008 we held our first services in the new building and formally affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
Our social justice activities have included annual sponsorship of a family at the local women's shelter at Christmas, collecting supplies for the homeless shelter, and contributing to the Heifer Project. Of course individual members volunteer in other activities in the Rocky Mount area.
