Bless All Who Serve

For Veterans Day, the Denton UU Fellowship is collecting a special offering to purchase and ship copies of Bless All Who Serve to service members and chaplains stationed overseas. This pocket-sized book of prayers, readings and songs has become very popular not only with the relatively few UUs in the military, but also with service men and women of other religions and those who never considered themselves religious.
Please consider a donation of $12.50 to cover the cost of a book and shipping. If you like, you can make the donation in honor of a friend or family member who served in the armed forces.
At our November 14 service we’ll read the names of those being honored.
Denton CUUPS will make a donation in honor of James Stevens, a CUUPS member and Navy veteran who died earlier this year.
We may disagree with the way our political leaders make use of our military forces, but as long as there are those who would do us harm, military service is a job that has to be done. Let us always remember to honor those who serve, both now and when these wars are finally over.

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
