Oct 19: Social Justice and Education

 
We welcome diversity. We commit to undo racism and all other oppressions in ourselves, our church,
and our community.
To be a good citizen, it's important to be able to put yourself in other people's shoes and see the big picture. If everything you see is rooted in your own identity, that becomes difficult or impossible.
 

Social Justice

 
The Social Justice Council, chaired by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 11am.  All are invited to participate.
 
 
The Social Justice Council is once again holding sign vigils in front of the church on Tuesdays from 8:00 to 8:45. We have signs reflecting our values, or you can bring your own. If you haven't come before, come join us!
 
 
HELP NEEDED WITH UUCT SIGN
Since last April we have posted 24 different messages on our street sign. They include both our UU Principles and issues of current socio-political interest. Currently, we are a team of 6, and about every 2 weeks 2-3 of us change the message. We need another volunteer who is willing and able to work on a ladder, and open and close our somewhat quirky sign. Please help us spread our message to the community. Contact Bob Gordon:

Renewal
Our theme in worship and RE this month is "Renewal." What are we renewing? Where in your life do you feel the need for renewal (like getting more sleep?) and where do you feel full up? What commitments are you willing to renew and which do you need to let go? Our resources this month ask us to think about Renewal in terms of our commitments to our communities, to our churches, to each other, and to ourselves. Let's explore!

Stained Glass Window

Our Seven Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.

We envision a program that is rooted in our UU principles and a free and responsible search for meaning that through the thoughts and actions of our lives, transforms us, our community, and our world.
