UU Identity: A Virtual Summer “Boot Camp”
Rev. Ritchie will be offering an exciting new virtual learning opportunity this summer. “UU Identity: A Virtual Summer Boot Camp” will meet for an hour and a half virtually twice a month in June, July, and August (the exact day and time will be coordinated with the schedules of those registering for the class). This course is intended to be an in-depth treatment of topics intended to develop and enhance Unitarian Universalist identity. We’ll cover our history, our polity (how we organize authority), our theology, and explore the basis of our commitments to social action. Participants can expect to spend two to three hours between each class session watching some video presentations and doing some reading (all of which will be provided online). While this course is geared towards adults, young people interested in serious engagement are most welcome. To register, write email@example.com
by Sunday, June 7, at 2:00PM. Classes will meet virtually using ZOOM video teleconferencing. Not used to zoom? No worries, we will provide assistance.
Soul Matters Small Covenant Groups
Soul Matters Small Groups invite people to deepen their connection to self, others, and spirit, through regular monthly meetings, reflection and spiritual practice. Soul Matters Small Groups consist of 6-8 people, one of whom acts as facilitator, who meet once a month for one and a half hours. Like covenant groups, group meetings provide opportunity for personal check-ins, with the additional of a mutual exploration of a monthly theme. We currently have three soul matters groups meeting through ZOOM video conferencing. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining.
White Supremacy and Me Discussion Groups
We have formed two discussion groups for exploring Layla Saad’s book, “Me and White Supremacy.” We anticipate meeting a total of ten times, via the regular church Zoom videoconference platform. While the groups have formed, we welcome new members, just write email@example.com.
Here’s a description of the book: Me and White Supremacy: A 28-Day Challenge to Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.
