  • "The World Needs Chaos Muppets"

    Rev. Jennifer Channin, Assistant Minister

    “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.” — The Book of Genesis

    Question for Reflection—Are you a Chaos Muppet or an Order Muppet?

Persistent Faith

Bright and sunny San Diego is an ideal spot for solar energy. Just ask First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego’s Trustee, David Karpinski. He and the congregation’s Green Team oversaw not only a lighting retrofit, the placement of drought-tolerant landscaping, and several other efficiency measures, but guided the process of financing their new 290-panel 65-kilowatt system. The entire system was paid for with low-cost loans from congregation members. “We’re thrilled with the system,” Karpinski says. “With the solar energy offsetting almost all of our electrical needs, and reduced demand charges, we have been able to reduce our electric bills by about 90%.” View full brochure.
