Welcome to UUHonolulu Coordinated Communications!

We are now each empowered to write our messages once for publishing through any of our media: Website, Weekly Newsletter, Monthly KukuiLamalama Magazine, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google Photo.

Given the times we live in, it is yet more important for us to communicate quickly and efficiently. We welcome others into our community and we will share news and events from our partner groups and the world at large.

To post a News item, log in to the website and write the Post.
Kanoa will review and publish.

To schedule and publicize an Event, log in and create an Event.
Suzette will review and publish it or work out changes as needed and publish.

Look for us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google Photos–
all with the name “UUHonolulu”. — Rev. Deborah Bond-Upson
