This church year, our smaller congregations have been receiving Touchstones journal as a valuable aid to their worship planning. Touchstones is published monthly as a joint ministry project of the Pacific Western Region of the UUA and First Universalist Church of Denver, and is supported by a grant from the Mountain Desert District. The journal follows First Universalist’s theme-based ministry, exploring each theme in depth.
Touchstones subscriptions are now available to all congregations. Leaders from several of our small congregations describe Touchstones as “wonderful,” “fabulous,” and “invaluable.”
As a subscriber, each month you will receive electronically:
– the eight-page Touchstones journal as a PDF, to share with your congregation’s leadership, worship committee, RE team, or even your entire congregation.
– an extensive Worship Resource Packet as Word documents, offering diverse materials meant to hep you plan two worship services
– a Discussion Guide on the monthly theme, for use by small groups.
Individuals can also subscribe to the Contemplations e-letter, which is sent on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
The annual subscription rate is $240 (September through August) and is available directly through Mountain Desert District. To subscribe your congregation for 2013/14, send a check payable to MDD-Touchstones to: Mountain Desert District, 2242 South Albion Street, Denver, CO 80222. Include the name and address of your congregation, and the name of the person and the email address to whom the journal and accompanying materials are to be sent.
