EnvironmentalJusticePractiioners LogoThe UUAA Climate Action Group invites all to gather in the Jackson Chapel to take part in a webinar call on Thursday, January 24, 7:30pm–9:00pm.
"Water Unites Us" is part of the Environmental Justice Practitioners Network Webinar Series. UU co-ministers emeriti, Reverends Rose Edington and Mel Hoover, will build upon stories and lessons learned from their chapter “Water Unites Us” in the current UUA Common Read, Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment. Both have long and continuing histories of activism in justice work. Justice on Earth is co-edited by Jennifer Nordstrom and UUAA's Senior Minister, Manish Mishra-Marzetti.

Please come help "Re-Ignite" the 20s and 30s Group for the new year at a gathering Sunday, January 27, 1:00pm–2:00pm.

What does it mean to be a "man" in today's world? What does the world need from those that identify as men? Come to a panel discussion from 1- 3pm in the Social Hall. Community / thought leaders will hold an open community dialogue exploring these complex and thought-provoking questions. All genders are welcome. Please bring open minds, open hearts, and a constructive approach. This event is sponsored by UUAA Men's Fellowship, the Intentional Living Collective, and Evenstar's Chalice. Reserve a spot today at bettermendialogue.eventbrite.com

CenteringBookChallenging Racism warmly invites you to discuss the last half of Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry from 1:00pm-3:00pm in the Fahs Chapel. The book reflects on the ways that UU religious professionals of color are sometimes marginalized in the white congregations they serve. It is an essential book for all of us at UUAA to ponder. It is a tender invitation to majority UUers to stand in the shoes of non-majority religious leaders, particularly those with whom we worship and work.The editor urges white UUs to take in their words and allow their stories "to touch your heart and soul" (p. xvi). Copies are available for borrowing from the UUAA office.

Hey UUAA – we’re putting on a show again (or – full disclosure-- we’re putting on an auction but there will be music).  It will be Saturday, April 13, 2019, so save the date.  One thing that we’re still working on is an auction theme.  Ideas for a theme?  Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
