Unitarian Universalist Church of Brazos Valley

Posted by Edith Cook on Thursday, January 19, 2017 Under: Events
This church in College Station is one I attended last year. When I attended earlier this month, I learned that the church & grounds had ben "condemned" via Eminent Domain: the city wants the property in order to expand the streets going--the church sits on a corner.

"We got a good settlement," a trustee told me. "We'll be able to build a new church--but need to find the right location."

Until then, the congregation and its pastor will use the Jewish Hillel Center on A&M's campus to hold services.

"We've used it before," I was told. "Its rabbi has been guest speaker at some of our services."

Below are some pics. First, the final day at its location on Wellborn Street: The pastor, a group of fine musicians, a child before a poster; children at play in January's pile of autumn leaves; group pic of congregation.

Now, at its temporary location, TAMU's Hillel Center: The bassoonist, the congregation, the pastor.

About Me

Edith Cook Though I now live in Wyoming, I make frequent return trips to California with visits to travel club members along the way. At home I play classical guitar, enjoy gardening and cooking, and participate in group yoga. Getting together with family and friends is high on my agenda. I value people who write or make music and love it when my adult children and their offspring play their instruments, sing songs with me, or discuss what they read and write. Such gatherings help me cope with the losses in my life, which have been severe. Next year I hope to visit family in Germany.
