Living Our Mission: Multi-cultural Feast, and Raising Toys and Goods for Easter Seals Children
UUCA is loving community that provides support and care for others through both the best and
the most difficult of times. One of the places in which we live this out is in the context of our
Fellowship Groups. On December 18th, UUCA’s Cultural Mosaic Group hosted a delicious
multi-cultural feast at the Marion-Landais home. UUCA Members from diverse traditions
contributed every kind of food imaginable including Japanese Vegetable Curry, Chinese
Broccoli, Potato Latkes, Cuban Pork, Plantains and Yucca, Sushi, Creole Gumbo, Jamaican
Curried Goat, and Southern Macaroni and Cheese. We even celebrated Kwanzaa with an
African curry dish! The next Cultural Mosaic event will be in February. Stay tuned, you don’t
want to miss this exciting blend of people, perspectives and passions.
UUCA is about people with a passion for social and economic justice. A recent Atlanta-Journal
Constitution article featured the role UUCA congregants played in raising toys for a good cause:
Guice Educare, an Easter Seals child development center in East Atlanta. A former elementary
school, Guice specializes in serving impoverished students and children with learning needs.
Thanks in particular go to the Preschool Family Ministry Team for their leadership. As the article
says, ”The final tally: clothing and toys for 155 children; bedding, cooking utensils and other
home necessities for three single-parent households; and gift cards from Kroger totaling $1,120
— all without government grants, permits, community studies or focus groups. It took two days
to distribute it all.” For more, see the article at AccessAtlanta.
