Stepping Forward for Liberation
“What will you do with this one wild and precious life?” asks the poet Mary Oliver.
As liberal religious people, we are called to step forward during these uncertain and perilous times to equip ourselves to become spiritually centered and awake. We will explore the why and how of being on a path of personal spiritual growth and societal transformation.
Worship Leaders: the Rev. Geoff Rimositis and Rodney Lemery, Ministerial Intern
Un paso hacia adelante para la liberación
"¿Qué vas a hacer con esta vida salvaje y preciosa?", pregunta la poetisa Mary Oliver. Como personas religiosas liberales, estamos llamados a dar un paso adelante en estos tiempos inciertos y peligrosos para dotarnos a estar espiritualmente centrados y despiertos. Vamos a explorar el por qué y cómo estar en un camino de crecimiento espiritual personal y transformación social.
Dirigen: el Rev. Geoff Rimositis y Rodney Lemery, Ministro Interino

Roots and Wings UU Parenting 0-10 years Group HOW TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT RACE, World Trust Educational Services, Dia Penning, Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith, Aimee Reeder, Edited by Ryan Mehar
“We live in a complex world. We are all trying the best we can to support the growth, health, and understanding of our kids. Today, as we get information at warp speed and events are televised from all parts of the globe, we are exposed to things that we might not have had an understanding of 20, 30, 40 or 50 years ago. As a parent that is interested in developing an honest and robust dialogue with your child about race and equity, there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind. It’s not too soon! By 6 months old, your child can distinguish between skin color and hair texture. As toddlers, children develop preferences and start to associate “good” with people that look like them. As preschoolers, they are all about sorting and are finding many ways to practice exclusion. By supporting their questions and guiding them in positive directions when they ask questions that seem jarring, we are setting them up for being inclusive and healthy adults."
Roots and Wings meets on Second Sundays in classrooms 4-6 at 9:30am, childcare provided. Meetings facilitated by Rev. Geoff Rimositis
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but closed at noon for an hour break.
