Hanging of the Greens is an all-ages event to decorate the church for the season, enjoy one another’s company, and share a meal together. Rev. Pam is leading a craft for the young (and young-at-heart). Linda is making pancakes for everyone. And Tesa is leading up the decoration efforts.
Please join us whether you are bringing the holiday cheer, or in need of some holiday cheer, or just available to lend a hand.
Please also participate in our potluck (if you like) by bringing a side dish or dessert.
Join the fun on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 6pm at Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1111 Cordell Street.
You may find a bubbling cauldron, hear ghoulish tunes and just maybe a ghostly figure will appear to share a tragic tale…You have to be there to find out…
This is an event with activities for young, old and in between. So put your costume on, make a scary (looking) dish and join us for the celebration!
Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to multiple life-threatening missions in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save hundreds of imperiled political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.
Defying the Nazis is cinematically told through the letters and journals of the Sharps, with Tom Hanks as the voice of Waitstill and Marina Goldman as the voice of Martha. It features firsthand interviews with the now adult children whom the Sharps saved, as well as leading historians, authors and Holocaust scholars, including William Schulz, Deborah Dwork, Modecai Paldiel, Ghanda DiFiglia and Yehuda Bauer.
