Eco Friday: Improving Home Energy Performance

Is your home chilly in the winter? Is it hot and sticky in the summer? Are your power bills through the roof? Maybe it’s time for some insulation between you and the roof!

Efficiency is key:  We will take a look at basic ways to make your house more comfortable throughout the year with a special focus on the upcoming winter months. Some topics we will cover include air sealing, insulation, windows, heating and cooling systems, with a brief focus on renewable energy and winterization of second homes. This will be followed by a question and answer session so come prepared!

Presentation by James Pader, owner of Winter Sun Construction, LLC, an award-winning, green building company located in Franklin, NC. James holds multiple green building certifications and is a Licensed General Contractor.

We are Family: Celebrating with Pride

Terry A. Davis.  The second annual Blue Ridge Pride and Unitarian Universalist Association Sunday coincide this weekend. What does it mean to be a family of faith that honors the inherent worth and dignity of every person regardless of their sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression?  Unitarian Universalist Minister Terry Davis explores how our wider movement is “Standing on the Side of Love” for LGBT persons and all families – and why it is especially important to support the work of the UUA as we approach our 50th year as a liberal religious movement.
