HOW DO WE DO IT ALL?

Janis Cheney & Colleen Reinke

 

It is important, in every area of our lives, to be good stewards of our resources. In our church community, 'stewardship' is our shared responsibility to support and grow the organization for the benefit of each member, our families, friends and our larger community. Janis Cheney and Colleen Reinke will offer reflections about their personal commitment and suggest ways for us all to consider what is, and how we meet, the needs of our shared ministry.

Janis has been a member of the Bismarck-Mandan UU for 32 years and has served in a variety of leadership positions over the years. She recently began a 3 year term on the MidAmerica Regional UU Board. Colleen has been an active member since 2008 and has also contributed her time and talent to leading our congregation. She currently serves as president of the Board of Trustees.

THIS I BELIEVE AND THIS I DO

Aruna Seth

 

As UUs, we hold a belief in 7 Principles and the sentiment that what we do while here on Earth matters. In this popular service format, two members will share their spiritual journey and how they live our UU principles.

 

Aruna is a longtime friend and active member of our fellowship and the wider community. She served on the Bismarck School Board and she and her husband Vinod have brought out joy and peace through their work in the Gandhi Peace Network.
