might not seem fair. Consider that though our contract specifies 45 hours per week, like
most ministers, I usually work at least 50 hours per week and sometimes as much as
sixty. Ministers have only one guaranteed day off each week.                                     Sunday August 15th Who are the UUs? Family

Unity Church Restoration Update

     Progress continues on the church restoration. The Joseph Gnazzo Company has completed a superb masonry restoration on all exte-
rior walls and the two retaining walls on the west side of the building, including removal of over a century’s worth of dirt and stains and a
great deal of repointing.
     Architect J. Thomas has been hard at work planning the next steps in the restoration. Nationally-known stained glass expert Robin
Neeley has completed a comprehensive survey of all of our stained glass. Robin was the conservator for the LaFarge windows restora-
tions a decade or so ago. Robin has helped us to determine which windows need attention first. The Chaffin Room’s Good Shepherd win-
dow is in the most critical condition and will need to be removed to be restored at some point in the hopefully not too distant future.
     In the meantime, the first order of business is to address water drainage problems that still threaten the building with water damage.
The committee is investigating drainage improvements around the entire building, but especially under the Wisdom Window, where wa-
ter finds its way through the foundation into the Work Room (old oil room).
     We are also addressing new window protection for the stained glass windows. The old milky plastic window protection will be re-
moved, and new tempered clear glass will be installed with improved venting over the old protection system. This change will not only
lead to an improvement to the appearance of the building, but will also be healthier for the stained glass windows themselves. By getting
the new window protection in place (and the adjacent wood restored), we will buy time to raise funds to restore the stained glass win-
dows. Once the windows’ woodwork is restored, the old yellow paint will be covered with the historically-correct Sycamore Tan color of
the tower louvers. The building will finally be color coordinated! Restoration of all of the stained glass windows themselves will likely
take place over years as funds become available.
     We are aware that the driveways and parking lot started out in rough shape and have deteriorated with time and heavy equipment use.
The committee is investigating ways to improve on this situation and will update everyone once we have a clearer idea of if and how we
can remedy the situation.
     For those of you who have completed their restoration pledge, many, many thanks! For those of you who have outstanding payments,
thank you for your payments to date; and we certainly appreciate your continued commitment to your pledge as we grapple with all of the
issues above. Every dollar counts!
     As always, please feel free to speak with any of us on the Unity Church Restoration Committee (UCRC) if you have any questions,
concerns, or suggestions.
