Resistance and Transformation: UU Social Justice History
6:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays, Oct. 1-Nov. 19
Kickoff Potluck – 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1
Our fall Adult RE program, “Resistance and Transformation: UU Social Justice History,” will be offered from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday evenings starting Oct. 1 and continuing through Nov. 19. We’ll kick off the semester with a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 1.
Join teaching team Kyna Byerly, Tim Dickerson and Connie Ordway to learn about the social justice actions of our forebears and consider how to apply their lessons to our work today.
Curriculum authors Collin Bossen and Julia Hamilton write:
Grounded in the belief that even “failures” in our history can be instructive, this program presents the ongoing struggle of our tradition to live up to its ever-evolving ideals of social transformation. Themes include abolition, peace-making, civil rights, free speech, utopianism, counter-culture, the women’s movements of both 19th and 20th centuries, sexuality education, and LGBT equality.
Over the years, our congregation has amassed a wide range of books for our library on almost every topic that intrigues the mind. The extensive lending library, located in the lower level of the church in the Forum Room/Library, is available to all.
