What's happening at the UUCG?
Aug. 23rd- Aug. 29th, 2017
These tumultuous times demand something of us: to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and insist our country and communities move forward- not back- on issues of racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and Antisemitism…We must dig deeper into the ways racism has infiltrated our subconscious, our hearts, and our educational, prison and government systems since our country was founded. The hate on display in Charlottesville, as grotesque, as it was, is not disconnected from the rest of us. It is the most egregious visible outgrowth of racism we have all breathed in, like polluted air, our whole lives. We must join hands, join hearts and continue the work of love and justice before us.
Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministries
Sunday August 27- "A Faithful Strength Shall Bend Not Break" - Liz Mount
Speaking to recent events in our denomination, Elizabeth Mount will lead us in thinking deeply about our Unitarian and Universalist faith heritage and how we can bring forth our personal spiritual grounding to strengthen us in confronting white privilege, racism, and white fragility in our communities. We will be called to deepen our spiritual awareness and join in creating a world where black lives matter and the experiences of people of color deepen our own faith.
***Spiritual Stimulation and Support Group Is suspending their meeting times for the Month of August, We will be back in September. ***
4th Tuesday Meditation
4th Tuesday Meditation is cancelled for the month of August. If there is interest, a new group may be formed in the fall.
