This Sunday, beginning at 10:30 am: Be sure to “Come to church!” Virtually, that is.
Your engagement in the democratic process of congregational governance is needed, now more than ever, at this year’s Annual Meeting. Show up to honor your commitment to keeping Fourth UU connections strong, even during uncertain times. The future of Fourth UU depends on your presence and participation. So, be sure to note the 10:30 am start time!
Monday evenings, June 22 and 29, from 7:00-8:30 pm
Book discussion group via Zoom of How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.
Join me, members of the social justice team and others for a “Deep Dive” as part of Fourth UU’s ongoing engagement with the topic of racial injustice and possible social justice actions.
Author and scholar Kendi will be launching the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University next month, and has also written a soon-to-be-released children’s book, Antiracist Baby.
In a recent interview in The Washingtonian, he was asked, “For people who might not read the whole book, what do you want them to know about antiracism?” He replied, “That the racial problem of our society is not in people. It’s policy and power, and we need to focus our energy on transforming and changing policy that is leading to racial inequity and injustice.”
CLICK HERE to purchase the book from Inspirit, the UU Book and Gift Shop. Or, check availability at your local library, Barnes & Noble, local bookstores and others online.
Hope to see you on these Sundays!
Blessings for the journey,
