On the term,
Jim Key, UUA Moderator, recently shared the following: “The term white supremacist once referred exclusively to individuals and organizations that openly espoused the superiority of white people. In recent years the term has come to refer to a culture, or a social narrative that places the needs, desires, stories, well-being, and the very lives of white people over and above those of people of color. It is the water we swim in. It is so much a part of our lives and of the life of our Association that it has just become business as usual. We have chosen to use the term and to endorse the teach-in called for by many of our religious educators because we are absolutely committed to staying awake to the challenges before us. White supremacy is a continuum. When we refuse to acknowledge our place in that continuum we risk being lulled back into complicity. Not this time friends.”

Meditation Group: Meets the First Friday of Each Month, 7:30-9:00 PM.
Friday June 2nd, 2017 - The Simple Life.
Diane Courtney is facilitating. We will begin with 20 minutes of silent meditation.
The simple life means eliminating all but the essential, eschewing chaos for peace, and spending your time doing what’s important to you.
However, getting to simplicity isn’t simple. It’s a journey, not a destination. Often, there are two steps forward, and one back.
Diane Courtney will share her journey using a common-sense approach, gathas, and other tools she has discovered in her ongoing efforts to attain simplicity.
Networking and refreshments.
