This Week at BBUUC…September 8

This week at BBUUC….


September 8: Reverend Jack Ford will present Water Under the Bridge: How our benign neglect for water may be drowning us. ”


Jack says: “I grew up in the springs and sink holes, lakes and rivers, ‘borrow pits’ and puddles of Florida. Twenty years ago my brother and I could drive across a lonely pasture in central Florida, strap on a tank, and dive into the deep, clear waters of our amazing aquifer. And Silver Springs was the crown jewel among

those mystical waters, a first-magnitude spring discharging more than 550 million gallons of water a day! As a child I enjoyed our family trips to ride glass-bottomed boats and watch pyramids of water skiers. Today, our misguided illusion of endless cascades of pure, clean water is costing us dearly. Florida’s finest gift of life is drying up: polluted, choked and smothering in a sea of mistakes and abuse. Let not this water flow under our Buckman Bridge unnoticed.”


Led by: Amber Rodriguez

 Accompanied by: Gary Smart


This intergenerational service will include our annual ingathering/water sharing.
