April 29 & 30 – Bad Karma: Is Unitarian Universalism a White Supremacist Movement?
It is customary to affix the label “white supremacist” to hate groups like the KKK and Aryan Nation. But UU’s are now being challenged by people of color and their allies to explore whether this shoe fits us as well. We will be one of as many as 500 congregations grappling with this issue. At our own services I will try explain why this question has arisen, whether the history of our denomination supports the contention and how we at FUS might respond to it. There will be an opportunity for congregational conversation as part of our Saturday service and after the 11 a.m. service on Sunday.
On Saturday, solos will be played by guitarist Joe Harris. On Sunday, the Society Choir will sing The Size of Your Heart by Canadian composer Eleanor Daley.
