The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N. at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27. Dan Dworkin will speak on his return to the Fiji Islands, where he was a Peace Corps volunteer 42 years ago. His visit included working on a Habitat for Humanity building project.
“Yesterday was a day spent in a new paradigm, where rain didn’t matter, where the seemingly impossible happens, where 15 mud-caked Americans worked like stevedores in the mud to build an addition to a poor man’s house. There was much joy in our camaraderie, in our work. Our efforts were blessed,” said Dworkin.  “Living in a village in Fiji with no roads, electricity or running water was real and immediate. Living at a subsistence, survival level brings out people’s basic interrelatedness and interdependence. Our essential oneness was revealed to me in the actions of the villagers. ”
Come early for fellowship and refreshments. For information call 828-894-5776 or visit www.uutryonnc.org.
