Online Adult Religious Education — 26 September 2021

Please join us on Sunday (26 September 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.

We have completed our White Fragility book study group using the book by Robin DiAngelo.

This week we continue our exploration of the 8th principle and anti-racism as we look at how Southern socialites rewrote history.

With so much attention turned recently to the teaching of history in our schools (including all the erroneous assertions that critical race theory is taught in kindergarten through grade 12), it’s time to take a look at how our textbooks came to frame the history that many of us learned in school and the huge role that the United Daughters of the Confederacy played in the process.

Online Adult Religious Education — 19 September 2021

Please join us on Sunday (19 September 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.

We have completed our White Fragility book study group using the book by Robin DiAngelo.

This week we continue our exploration of the 8th principle and anti-racism as we look at racial disparities in health care.

In just about every aspect of health care in the US, racial disparities are often stark.

Whether the inequities are present in access to care, in attitudes of medical personnel that impact the treatment of people of color, or in a lack of trust in the medical profession brought about how they treat people of color, the inequities are very real.

Come join us to learn more.

Online Adult Religious Education — 5 September 2021

Please join us on Sunday (5 September 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.

We have completed our White Fragility book study group using the book by Robin DiAngelo.

This week we continue our exploration of the 8th principle and anti-racism as we look at environmental racism in the US.

Rev. William Barber of the Poor People’s Campaign calls on us to end the silos that have so often been characteristic of the movement to remediate climate change and other social justice movements.

If we Unitarian Universalists truly believe in the interdependent web of all existence, we need to take a hard and honest look at how climate change along with all the related threats to our environment affect us all but affect most severely those who are already most marginalized among us.
