Social Justice Movie NightsPosted on January 19th 2021
The Social Justice Consciousness Team invites you to several upcoming movie nights! We have scheduled these movie nights leading up to the congregational dialogues. Even though we can’t gather, we can all watch the movie at the same time! Or, if it works better for you, feel free to watch the movie on your own schedule. Following the movie, we will have a short Zoom gathering where we can discuss the movie.
You should be able to find these movies on multiple streaming services or on DVDs at the library.
Monday, January 25, 7:00 pm – “13th”
Available on Netflix and YouTube
Zoom link for a post-movie discussion on “13th”- 8:45 pm will be posted in the weekly ‘Happenings’ email newsletter.
Next movie: Monday, March 22, 7:00 pm – “Just Mercy”
Watching these movies as a congregation helps us do the consciousness work that is at the center of our social justice emphasis this year. We hope you can join us for the discussion. But we hope you will watch the movie even if you can’t attend the Zoom conversation.
Adult EnrichmentPosted on January 19th 2021
Be on the lookout in this space for future learning opportunities. A new committee is forming whose role is to produce programs aimed at adult learning. The role of the committee is not to produce content, but rather to facilitate other facilitators in arranging programs. We are looking for committee members to represent the diverse life stages of the congregants. We welcome all ideas for programs. Reach out to the committee chair, Jim Scanlan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Long Strange Trip: A History of Unitarian Universalism
The first adult enrichment program of the year will be a Zoom watching of a video series produced by the UUA that will be facilitated by UUCS member Jim Scanlan. The series presents a history of liberal religion beginning with the early Christian era, followed by the development of Unitarian and Universalist faiths, through the merger of the two faiths to the present. We will watch 6 1-hr videos during 6 consecutive weekly sessions. After each viewing, there will be 30-min of discussion. The program will be offered Wednesday evenings 7-8:30 beginning February 10th and continuing through March 17th. Enrollment will be limited to 10 participants and we ask participants commit to attending the majority of the sessions to ensure lively discussion. To enroll, fill out an online form here.
Our Whole Lives for Parents of K-6
Our Wholes Lives is the name given to the comprehensive lifespan human sexuality education program offered through the UUA. One 2-hr session will be offered with the aim of providing parents of children grades K-6 the confidence needed to be the primary sexuality educators of their children. We’ll address questions such as “why talk about sexuality with children this young?” and “why educate children about sexuality in a religious community?”. The program will be co-facilitated by Sybil Arginatar, UUCS Director of Religious Education, and Jim Scanlan, OWL-trained elementary facilitator. Attend one of two sessions, either Sunday, February 7, 2- 4 PM or Saturday, February 13, 2 – 4 PM. To enroll, contact email@example.com.
