Rooted in our religious history and theological callings, this 6-week series explores reproductive “health,” “rights,” and “justice”; opens awareness of reproductive oppression; offers opportunities to learn about ourselves and each other as sexual and reproductive beings; and equips us to move forward, out into the world, with integrity and vision. This session explore the goals, methods, and strategies for reproductive justice advocacy, affirm the theological and personal sharing within the group, and inspire relationships within the group or with outside partners.
Join us for a cup of coffee, a snack, and interesting conversations!
11:00 a.m. – Service: Giving Thanks: The Art of Gratefulness, led by Min. Justin McCreary
Some mornings I wake up and wonder where my joy has gone. It becomes easy, day after day, to become filled with an unbreaking funk–and not the good kind. But when I look into eyes of love, my heart breaks with joy because I know I am not alone. And then I overflow with thanks.
11:00 a.m. – Religious Exploration:
- Chalice Children (ages 5-8): Wonderful Welcome – Through stories, song, guided play, and arts and crafts, the Chalice Children will explore and share the intangible gifts of welcoming central to Unitarian Universalism such as kindness, love, friendship, hospitality, and fairness.
- U.U. Kids (ages 9-14): Amazing Grace: Exploring Right and Wrong – Through stories, discussion, and activities, the U.U. Kids will develop their own moral compass to guide them on the path toward becoming empathetic and responsible teenagers and adults.
- YUUth (ages 15-17): Cosmos: A Personal Voyage – The YUUth class will begin watching “Travelers’ Tales” learning about the Voyager probes and discussing the Voyager anomaly from 13 Things That Don’t Make Sense. We may also have a cameo appearance by Mr. Spock mind melding with the ‘Veeger’ probe.
