Wrestling with our Understandings around Race

The events of this year have called our attention to issues of race, and understanding our relationship to those issues. During General Assembly, our Unitarian Universalist Association was called to affirm that Black Lives Matter.

In addition, here at 1U, we are introducing a series of classes called Beloved Conversations, Meditations on Race and Ethnicity. 25 – 30 of our 1U members will be participating in the program.

Many of us are wrestling with understanding and responding to our experience, our emotions, and what we are called to do. It can be difficult, and for some of us it is destabilizing.

Let us remain open in our hearts to this journey. We anticipate deep conversation within the congregation, and hope for greater understanding, healing and spiritual development. Rev. Kathy and I invite you to bring your questions and concerns to us anytime, and specifically invite you to a conversation after worship on Sunday, November 1 in the Library at 12:15. Please join us.

We have a hard limit on participants in Beloved Conversations, so are preferencing those in leadership positions for our first offering, but expect that we will run the program again.
