Anti-racism Learning Group Discussion Part 1 of 3 with Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy, Senior Minister
This past summer we began a Facebook group to deepen our anti-racist learning, especially for those of us who identify as white. This group will be a chance to discuss the Facebook posts “face to face” on Zoom and process a bit together. If you choose to attend this group we strongly recommend that you commit to all three sessions (Sept. 30, Oct 28, and Dec 2). If you didn’t join the Facebook group, you can receive the posts and readings via email by contacting Rev. Christina in advance. (christina@fvuuf.org)

What does it mean to join the Fellowship? with Marie Luna, director of congregational life
Many people engage deeply with the Fellowship without ever officially joining. Others find signing the membership book to be one of the most important choices they have made. What does it mean to be a member of a Unitarian Universalist congregation? Join Marie Luna, director of congregational life, in this conversation, whether you are a member or not!

Defining your spiritual practice with Marie Luna, director of congregational life
What is keeping you grounded in your life, as everything has changed so drastically? Join Marie Luna in talking about spiritual practices and why we need them even more in times of stress. As the old Buddhist saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day. Unless you’re too busy, then you should sit for an hour.” Meditation may not be your spiritual practice of choice, so let’s talk about other options!

How Colonialism Sows the Seeds of Racism with Tina Main
Let’s talk about the hard truth about how imperialist thinking and colonialism lead directly to the development of our white supremacist culture. We will also delve into the history of our UU relationship to the Philippines and ways in which we as a UU faith/congregation can move toward building successful cross-cultural relationships.

UU History: A question of conscience with Ali Peters, Intern Minister
As people of the Unitarian Universalist faith, it is helpful to know our faith’s history. In this UU History series, we approach that history from the starting point of compelling stories and personalities, so each session will focus on one or two of our UU ancestors. We will explore the questions they faced, make connections with our own lives and the world around us today. The overarching question is: how can history be translated into our religious life and practice?
