Share The Plate Updates

Our March Share the Plate recipient is Family-to-Family, Inc. (, a grassroots nonprofit 501(c)(3) hunger and poverty relief organization dedicated to providing food, personal hygiene products, and other basic life essentials to American families struggling with the challenges of poverty. By connecting donors one-to-one with specific families in need, Family-to-Family’s mission is to bring a large and seemingly intractable problem – poverty – into personal focus, making concrete and meaningful results possible…one family at a time. We collect for our Share-the-Plate partner throughout the month. Visit the Donation page on, click “Donate,” and select “Share the Plate.”

Reading Black Lives

The FUSW Reading Black Lives book group is reading Harlem Shuffle, the latest from Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Colson Whitehead. The group will meet in April (date TBA) to discuss the novel, which NPR called "a suspenseful crime thriller" and "a powerful tale of a man's love for his family and the neighborhood where he lives." All are welcome. Please contact Denise Woodin ([email protected]) if you would like to join in.

From Our Worship Community

Walkabout Clearwater Coffeehouse

Race & Song: A Musical Conversation with Reggie Harris and Alastair Moock, Saturday, March 18, 7:30pm, Walkabout Clearwater Coffeehouse

Join these two veteran musicians and storytelling troubadours for a very special performance –– an exploration of the past, the present, and the possible. These friends of different races, ages, and social backgrounds share how they’ve seen and experienced the world in different ways. They explore issues of race, class, gender, and history with an intentionality and generosity of spirit that will draw in folks of all ages. These aren’t always comfortable topics for discussion, but the discussion –– and the discomfort –– are keys to moving forward. Together in musical conversation, and with the aid of historical and family photos, Alastair and Reggie open up to each other and frame their perspectives through music.

The evening will begin with the Coffeehouse's popular Teachabout, or singalong, at 6:45 p.m. The concert itself begins at 7:30 p.m. Join us at our new location: Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 468 Rosedale Avenue, White Plains, NY 10608.

Tickets are $23 in advance; $25 at the door. Click here to purchase tickets in advance.
