November 10, 2019 | 12:30-1:30pm | Across UUCT
…Deepen faith …Strengthen connections
In this year of experimentation, 2nd Hour is one way that Rev. Bethany and I want to answer the call to offer more opportunities for adults to learn, grow, and deepen in understanding, community, connection, and service.
From 12:30-1:30pm, one Sunday per month, we will offer opportunities for people of all ages to participate in community-led activities or classes. Offerings will vary every month, so watch the weekly email next week for details including descriptions and age restrictions.
This month's workshops are:
Circles of Our Multicultural Selves with Bob Gordon
11 yrs+ | Awareness
Who are you? We all have multiple identities, some visible, others not. We'll share some of them and talk about how they affect our lives. Thoughtful discussion led by Bob Gordon.
Stitch with a Witch (sit and stitch) with Carrie Cooper and EJ Milstone
13 yrs+ | Emerson | Limited to 15 people
Do you knit, crochet, tat, cross-stitch, or otherwise play with thread and yarn? Bring your own project to work on or extra hooks, needles, and yarn to share. Beginners welcome! Two members of our SAZCUUPS community, Carrie (crochet) and EJ (knit), will be on hand to help out with techniques or project issues.
UUs Celebrating Holidays with Margot Garcia
12 yrs+ | Servetus
Who is the family that gathers at Thanksgiving? Creating family out of relationships. How should we celebrate Christmas? What is its meaning for UUs? How do we live our values? Interactive discussion with Margot Garcia
All Ages (under 10 with an adult) | Patio
With cooler weather and gentle breezes comes unsightly garbage blowing around our beautiful church campus! Join this group in a gentle walk around the facilities to pick up trash or, if you’re feeling ambitious, pull a weed or two! We’ll meet on the Patio to distribute trash bags and latex gloves (or bring your own), and then we will split up to wander the campus!
Art of Hope and Healing gallery tour and craft
All Ages | Holland
The church is pleased to present a special show curated by Valarie Lee James and her collaborator, Antonia Gallegos hung in our very own Holland Sanctuary, beginning on November 10. The artworks, made by migrant children mostly from Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico, are amazing, and are displayed as simple drawings or on quilts made by the Esperanza Quilters. Come hear Valarie a brief tour of the show and Gale Hall present works of the Esperanza Quilters. Then enjoy the art and draw your own messages of welcome on fabric squares.
Children are welcome in age-appropriate workshops. Nursery is available for those under 10 years.
