Forum: Transgender Lives, Face to Face

Saints and Sinners, Gratitude and Grace (Thanksgiving)

Join us in person or on Zoom at 9:30 a.m. CT.

True, deep gratitude doesn’t edit. It’s about finding the joy in the beautiful messy table of your life, without cleaning it up to make it presentable. Please join us for this warm Thanksgiving service about gratitude, and grace.

FORUM at 11:00 a.m. CT

Join us on Sunday, Nov. 21st at 11:00 am for our next church forum featuring Faith In Action 2022 recipient, Just Voices Iowa. You’ll learn more about who they are and how they’re fighting to end racially-biased policing in Des Moines.  Hear the latest results of their detailed research and see newly released video interviews. Most importantly, learn how you can make a difference and help Just Voices create a more just Iowa.  We strongly encourage you to explore their website, www.justvoicesia.org before the Forum and bring your questions!

Adding an 8th Principle?

Order of Service

 

FORUM at 11:00 a.m. CT

The 8th Principle states: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

More than 125 Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations and communities have voted to include the 8th Principle and actively support change in their congregations to support it. The Article 2 Commission will include some form of the 8th Principle for a full vote of the General Assembly in 2023 and 2024.  Rev. Wolfe will share some history of how we came to this moment and where it will be going in the future.

Our presenter, Rev. Sunshine J. Wolfe,  is Congregational Field Staff for the Central East Region serving congregations in western Pennsylvania and across Ohio. Ghe hails originally from Indiana where ghe learned to sing, dance, and cause trouble- the social justice kind. Ghe is currently a member of TRUUsT (Transgender Religious professional Unitarian UniversalistS Together) and DRUUMM (Diverse Revolutionary Multicultural Ministries).
