Sunday May 20, 2018

We will be joining the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown this Sunday. Rev. Rose Edington and Rev. Mel Hoover will be the guests of UUFM and West Fork UUs.

“Mel and Rose,” as retirees, still work on the state and national levels to promote social justice on many levels. Active elders in Black LIves of Unitarian Universalism, they will talk about the Intersectionality of “Race” and “Choice,” reminding us that: Black and Women’s Lives Matter. We will celebrate the inherent worth and dignity of one another together on Sunday. Please come!

Their service is at 10:45 am.

UUFM is located at 429 Warrick St, Morgantown, WV 26505

February 2016 Naming Race

https://www.uua.org/re/teachers/webinars

This is from the UUA’s Faith Development Webinar Series

Religious educators are key leaders in our racial justice work as Unitarian Universalists. And sometimes beginning conversations about race can be challenging—we fear that we’ll be awkward or use the wrong word or cause pain or contribute to exclusion. Join the Faith Development Office and the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for a webinar featuring religious educators telling stories about naming race – stories of things going well, mistakes made, lessons learned and how our souls and skills grow in the process. Presenters: Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen, Lauren Wyeth, Sheila Schuh, Kirsten Hunter, and Rev. Jamil Scott.

Namaste,
