Aisha Hauser, Christina Rivera, Rev. Michael Tino, Quiana Perkins, Dawn Fortune, and Julica Hermann DelaFuente host this live Unitarian Universalist talk show discussing today’s topics from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and multicultural perspective. The VUU streams live on YouTube every Thursday at 12 pm ET. It is sponsored by the Church of the Larger Fellowship. Here is there most recent episode.
This is part of a series of community Conversations within Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism
BLUU Principle #1 – All Black Lives Matter
What would it be like if our UU worship service centered entirely around
the voices and the experiences of black Unitarian Universalists? What truths might we hear, however difficult? What might we learn? How might these black UU leaders teach us to be better allies, better siblings in faith, and even better citizens in our community?
This Sunday, John, will facilitate a service called “The Promise and the Practice.” In our commitment to dismantling white supremacy as a system, being anti-racist, and embracing the presence and leadership of people of color, white Unitarian Universalists are still learning to decentering our whiteness so that people of color are brought from the margins to the center. Join us as we practice that work, and promise a new way of being together.
We would love to have you come worship with us.
Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.
Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.
Children are welcome. There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.
The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.
The schedule for the current adult religious education class is here.
