This Spring Con Let’s Ally Together

Hello all! Welcome welcome!

Well it’s that time of year again! Spring is bursting forth, flowers be blooming, birds be chirping, Donald’s be quacking-wait-what?! What is this bull-ninny-whiz?! I was looking forward to a happy spring a peaceful  spring, not a spring with duck crap all over it. Ew!

So, In light of recent events, we are holding an Ally Con. We will be having a smaller assortment of workshops than usual, about 3 this year. We will have a speaker to talk about Racial Justice, and two workshops lead by committee members. One is on how to be an ally for the disabled, the other is how to be an ally for the transgender community.

We will also have our usual touchgroups, games, dinner, fun, and dancing! There will also be an open creative activity for those who cannot handle the intensity of the issues. Be comfortable with your own comfort level.

This year Spring-Con is in Columbus. Links listed below to apply for scholarships and to register!

Be Awesome Guys!

Cabin Fever? Winter Blues? Have no fear! Cons are here!

Hello one, hello all! It’s been awhile since last roll-call. We haven’t posted for a year, but here we are to bring back some cheer!

Winter snow is melting now, thank goodness for that fresh dirt smell!

Though, while the aroma may be pleasant, your guts (may) be feeling as phat as a pheasant.

Do not despair my little ones, don’t bring out those carb-controlling guns!

Instead come to CON for food, friends, and fun! (and also some hiking, just to be done).

There’s CABINCON in the month of April from the 15th through the 17th.

There’s also SPRINGCON for the less woodsy from May 20-22nd.

Link’s are below so do not despair!

Spring Con

A Spring Con song!
You know the tune:

Do you wanna go to spring con?
Come on let’s go and play
I don’t see snow here anymore
It’s time to go
Another con is on its way!
We’ll always be best buddies
In big cuddle puddles
Sharing moments that make us laugh and cry!
Do you wanna go to spring con?
It really has to be spring con!

Do you wanna go to spring con?
And hula hoop around the halls?
I think some hugs are overdue
Some awesome worship too
Don’t forget about coffee house
You know you just wanna go!
It never gets too lonely
At con with everyone around
So do you wanna go to spring con?
I really wanna go to spring con!

Spiralling into the Circle

We are the weavers
We are the woven ones
We are the dreamers
We are the dream
– From the song Spiralling into the Circle

This weekend I attended a Spirituality Development Con that our district put on for youth and adults. It was a training on leading circle worship, the style of worship we use at youth and young adult cons. Circle worship is a dynamic alternative to traditional worship. Instead of sitting in pews looking up at the worship leader, we are all equals and participants in our circle, were sharing is prioritized over sermonizing. This weekend we experimented with different worships, one of the most creative being “Here Comes the Sun” while snow melted in our hands, reflecting on the long winter.

We have some upcoming events with circle worships. Please see if you can attend:

Cabin Con: a weekend in a cabin in Hocking Hills, southeast Ohio. Come for hiking, community, and worship. March 21-23. http://ohiomeadville.org/omdevents/234-cabincon2014

Spring Con: one of our two large cons every year, it’s a traditional young adult with workshops, touch groups, and of course, worship. This one will be in Erie, PA, May 30-Jun 1. Registration and other details coming soon.

Opus: the annual retreat for UU young adults in the US and Canada and beyond is being held in Ohio this year. This is a 5 day long supercon held at a campground, with time for more worships, more in depth workshops, and time to form deeper bonds with your peers. August 13-17 at Camp Nuhop. Registration and more details coming soon.
