February 28 — Rev. Scott Dillard "Overcoming Our Fears"
If we give in to our fears, we stay frozen in time and can not move forward. There is, however, a path forward when we confront our fears and trust not only in our abilities but in the larger forces that guide us and help us through these difficult confrontations.

My husband, Bruce, and I first discovered Mountain Light in May 2011. We had been hoping to find a Unitarian church in north Georgia since moving to Talking Rock in 2010. We knew immediately we had found our church home.
Mountain Light exemplifies the Unitarian belief in the acceptance, as well as the celebration, of all individuals. It is a joy to experience MLUUC members welcoming visitors and friends every Sunday. Visitors are delighted when they realize their beliefs are embraced and not rejected or criticized. Whether a family of one or a family of 15, you are supported at Mountain Light.
I have found the more involved I become at MLUUC, the happier I am and the more I love the members and friends I meet. I was raised as a Methodist in Oklahoma. Today, I embrace the inclusiveness of all people, which is an inspiring foundation of Unitarian Universalism.
Bruce and I were married in a Unitarian church in Oklahoma City. We attended UU churches in Little Rock and Atlanta with our two grown sons, Jacob and Jordan. I joined MLUUC in 2012 and Bruce joined in 2015. We could not be more pleased. You will be pleased when you experience UU-ism, too.
