Today was my first day at UUCC and I have to say, they all made it feel like I was home again. I was so happy to be back with UU's. I almost cried from happiness. Thank UUCC for making Chattanooga feel like home.

To be in a place where everyone is striving to simply be better people, love those in the world around them, and accept everyone for who they are and where they are in their journeys, is such a gift for me. No doubt in my mind that I am where I need to be. The good energy in that place is a pulsing heartbeat... alive and vibrant.

It was beyond wonderful seeing everyone at church this morning. All the hugs - the very meaningful service - the singing! It's the first time I've felt like I was really at church since August. I'll be a UU until I die, and I'm gonna make it a point to be there at least once a month. Thanks for the love you continue to show me. It's reciprocated ten times over!
