November 19 – “The Abundance of All Good Things” by Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder
It is so easy to take things for granted. It seems that we think about the importance of church and its role in our lives in the spring at pledge time. But there is so much that is going on all year long! Some of the events at church that we just come to expect deserve special celebration, as do the people who make it happen. The best way to celebrate Thanksgiving.
November 26 – “The Promise and the Practice” by the Black Lives Matter Work Group
In this service we will lift up the lives of black Unitarians and Universalists and learn how our mostly white and mostly privileged movement has ignored, denied, and suppressed information about their contributions. We will also introduce the current Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism movement or BLUU, who’s contributions can already be felt reinvigorating our religious movement.
Immediately following the service, we will unveil our church’s BLACK LIVES MATTER banner. Please gather at the church labyrinth on the West side of the Sanctuary (the side near the I-10 access road). Please wear your Black Lives Matter t-shirts or buttons, if you have them, for this special service and banner unveiling.
December 3 – “Speaking Justice in the Language of Our Faith” by Rev. Kathleen McTigue
We are living in troubled times. Threats to basic human rights are on the rise, as stark barriers defining “us” and “them” are fortified and championed. But our faith speaks a different word into these difficult times: it calls us to keep our hearts and minds open, and our hands turned to the urgent needs of healing and justice.
The Rev. Kathleen McTigue is the Director of the UU College of Social Justice. Prior to accepting this position in 2012, she served as a parish minister for 25 years, first in North Carolina and then New Haven, CT. She currently resides in Boston, MA, with her husband; they are the parents of three adult children.
