For our Sunday morning worship service on 2018 December 02, Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church welcomes Leslie Wade, a member of our congregation, who will be speaking on the topic of ” What Chimpanzees Can Teach Us about Humanity”.
Leslie tells us that chimpanzees are our closest biological relative but, sadly, we haven’t treated our cousins very well. That’s changing for many former research chimpanzees who are now being relocated from laboratories to special sanctuaries. Leslie Wade will share stories from Project Chimps, the 236-acre sanctuary for former research chimpanzees right here in the North Georgia mountains.
Leslie Wade has worked in the field of communications and public relations for 30 years. She currently serves as Manager of Communications for Project Chimps in Morganton. Leslie is a resident of Ellijay, where she lives with her companion, Ed Campbell, and two small rescue dogs, Kibby and Carlos.
Mountain Light UUC, 2502 Tails Creek Road (GA-282 West), in Ellijay, is a Welcoming Congregation. We welcome guests of all faiths, ethnicities, and gender identifications. Our coffee and fellowship begins at 10 AM, followed by the service from 10:30 to 11:30.
Our Religious Education is provided for children by Dr. Aimee Cribbs on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. Children are always welcome to attend our services in the sanctuary. For information about our 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles and our future services, please go to mluuc.org.
