Unitarian Universalist
Church of Cheyenne
A community of refuge where all have equal worth and are invited into spiritual exploration as a foundation for: 
hope. compassionate service. action. 
 Leaning In, Falling Forward

Trust walks and team-building exercises might be fun or anxiety provoking in the workplace. Today, we explore their function in building metaphors for community and helping us to move into the unknown together. What does falling feel like when we can’t see the ground? What changes when we know that the divine or the Beloved Community can be counted on to catch hold?
 Preacher – Reverend Elizabeth Mount

All are welcome!

My wonderful and worthy neighbors,

I came to you here in Cheyenne after three years living in the town of Indiana, just outside of Pittsburgh, PA, where our Unitarian Universalists from all over the country will be meeting in June for General Assembly. Pittsburgh is a city you may know as the home of Mr. Rogers. Mr. Rogers was a gently-spoken, kind, brave person who ran a children’s television show on PBS when I was a child. Today, his messages continue to be seen on Daniel Tiger, which many current children watch and love. What I learned watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood as a child is that we all have emotions like hope and fear and joy and sadness, and we all need other people. We need a community capable of hearing all the beautiful ways that we are and all the ways that we are struggling as well in order to live a good life and become our best selves. 

Mr. Rogers said, “I love you, just the way you are,” and I, like so many of the children who grew up with him, believed it. So as much as I find worth in the complex words of theologians and philosophers, when I need to find a simple way forward with my feelings, I come back to Mr. Rogers. So this week, I watched this old video:

It starts out asking, “What do you do with the mad that you feel
When you feel so mad you could bite?
When the whole wide world seems oh, so wrong…
And nothing you do seems very right?
Well, I sure have been thinking about where I put my feelings of frustration with our legislature who seem not to understand how blessed and wonderful our children and Youth in this very congregation are. So, I’ve been turning that back around into abundant love and a fierce appreciation for the hard work and courageous witness I’m seeing when people all the way from 5-85 years old are committed to loving one another. And I’ll note that this Mr. Rogers song ends on a gender binary note, but Mr. Rogers always told us that how we feel inside is real and worthy, and so I’ll say that if you’re a boy who becomes a woman or a girl who may grow up to be a man, or a person of any age who has a gender that’s doesn’t go in one of those two boxes, Mr. Rogers would’ve told you this: 

“I like you as you are
Exactly and precisely
I think you turned out nicely
And I like you as you are”

Here we are in our church community, capable of carrying that message of abundant, extravagant, overflowing, and unceasingly divine Love into the world. Here, we are building a community where we can trust ourselves to be held when we are not strong enough to do it all alone, and celebrated for being who we are without apology, and given the space to grieve in community, to come here for help. Here, we are building a space where people can return without shame when we’ve had an emotional outburst, a mental health issue, a substance abuse relapse… when we’re struggling with things we cannot even name, we come back here because we’re ready to work together to find a way forward, or just to sit with you in your pain.

Here we are a community of trust. Let us be worthy of opening our hearts to one another. Let us do our best work in this sacred space which we are building together. 

In the fullness of love,
Rev. Elizabeth


Reverend Elizabeth will be teaching a UU History class, 3 sessions, beginning April 6, 2023

Join us online or in-person in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Becoming a 2023 General Assembly Delegate
Congregations are now selecting delegates to represent them at GA in June, both virtually and on-site in Pittsburgh. If you’re curious about what it means to be a delegate and how to become one, allow UUA Secretary Bill Young and Co-Financial Advisor Chris Chepel to tell you more about what to expect as a delegate and how to approach the possibility in your congregation.

Only certified member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) may be represented by voting delegates to GA.


On the round table in the lobby, there is a signup sheet for Coffee Hour. Please put your name down for one of the next three weeks to set up or clean up – nobody wants to miss out on coffee and treats! 
If the date you choose ends up not working out for you to come early or stay late, you can cancel or switch dates easily by contacting  Jan at administrator@uucheyenne.org,or Kayla.
Or, if you would like a predictable schedule, let Jan or Kayla know you can make coffee every third Sunday or want to take down tables one Sunday a month. We can put that in a regular slot for you and our Realm system will send you a handy Friday reminder to your email whenever it’s your turn!
 Please sign up at least once each quarter so everyone has an opportunity to volunteer.
Thank you!

Important communications are now being sent by many people in the UUCC community via emails through Realm. Be sure you are not missing anything by adding the following email address to either your whitelist or your contacts: notifications@onrealmmail.org.
If you have any questions or want to create an account on Realm, please feel free to reach out to the Realm Implementation team at uuccrealmhelp@uucheyenne.org.

The Realm Implementation Team and the Policies and Procedures Team often run into questions regarding the administration of the church that they would like to receive guidance on. The team would like to have a group of people with experience and/or interest in administration, church leadership, policy making, human resources, organizational development, or anything along those lines to help in creating an effective church administrative system.

The idea is not to meet on a regular basis but to confer on issues as they arise via email or Realm chat with an occasional in-person or Zoom meeting as necessary. If you have any interest in helping the church meet this challenge, please contact Gene Heater.  His contact information is in Realm or can be obtained from Jan.
