New UU: February 17 – March 17, 10:05 – 10:55 AM (Please register for this class at link below)

Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? New to Unitarian Universalism, or just finding your UU spiritual path changing as you grow and want to share? Consider joining our New UU class starting on February 17th. Participants will get to know each other and explore the spectrum of beliefs and practices that Unitarian Universalists embody, as well as get a sense of the theological grounding of our faith tradition. We ask that you plan to attend all five sessions.

UUA Common Read: Justice on Earth; April 14, 12:15 – 2:00 PM

The UUA Common Read for 2018-2019 is Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018).

At a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, Justice on Earth explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. Those on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book asks us to recognize that our faith calls us to long-haul work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life. It invites us to look at our current challenges through a variety of different perspectives, offers tools to equip us for sustained engagement, and proposes multiple pathways for follow-up action. Justice on Earth is available at inSpirit: UU Book and Gift Shop.

**You should purchase your own copy of the book and read it ahead of the discussion.

If you are interested in this class and require childcare to participate, please email childcare@liveoakuu.org no later than two weeks prior to the class, with subject line: Common Read. Include the age(s) of your children.
