Our Summer of Forums, 10 am!
August 16 - "Moving to a theme based curriculum for both the adult and youth programs." Christopher Bakker, speaking. Allen Matthews hosting. You may be wondering, "What does this mean to me?" Come learn about the Six Sources of Unitarian Universalism, Chalice Lighting, and our Seven Princicples. See how these sources and principles will inform our year together. Be more aware of how the children and adults will be learning concurrently. You are one of our teachers for the children, whether you're aware of it or not.
August 23 - Summer Book Club, part 3. Ghettoside: a True Story of Murder in America by Jill Loevy. Deb Donavan to lead and Barbara Minor hosting. “America’s black-on-black-crime problem isn’t going to be solved by black boys pulling up their pants or refraining from using the N-word or any of the other condescending solutions cable-news pundits have eagerly urged on the monolithic “black community” of their feverish imaginings. Our justice system can prevent blacks from killing blacks in the same way that it prevents whites from killing whites: by investing time, money, and police resources into proving that black people are valuable to our society—by extending them material and cultural support while aggressively investigating and prosecuting the perpetrators of their violent deaths. Unfortunately, such a commitment is expensive and arduous, and it requires white Americans to admit that, in some ways, black-on-black crime is an outgrowth of historic white-on-black crime. It’s much easier to watch TV’s one hundredth Natalee Holloway special and tolerate cops who write off black murder victims as subhuman.” Book Forum.com
We invite you to join us at Third Unitarian Church at 10 am on Sundays this Summer.
