Join us next Sunday
February 3, 2019

10:30 AM Sunday Service | Legacies of Justice
Martin Luther King Jr. told the Unitarian Universalist Association during his 1966 Ware Lecture, "Don't sleep through the revolution!" These words have great meaning for our congregation today as well as for our denomination. In the age of Black Lives Matter, we are being called to wake up and to take action.

9:15 AM Drop-in Discussion | White Fragility Part II
Why is it so difficult for white people to talk about racism?
Join facilitators Shelly Adams and Elizabeth Osta as we continue to explore what makes discussing racism so difficult and what we can do to make it work! (“White Fragility,” Author Robin DiAngelo 2018)
