At the CYRE (Children Youth Religious Education) Team meeting this Tues., July 14th (6:30-8pm), we will work to make decisions on what virtual RE will look like for the fall. If you have any interest in hearing about the possibilities and giving feedback, please join in. Contact Jennifer (email@example.com) for the link.
Sunday Worship, July 12 at 10 AM
Our online service will be the last with the troika, who are completing their two-year interim with UUCM. As a special treat for the congregation, and for the troika’s own sense of completion, the service will be streamed from the church sanctuary (with no one but staff present).
If you’d like to say goodbye in person in a socially distanced way, join us after the service from 11-12 for a car recessional. Meg, Arif and Terri will be outside the church in the upper loop to chat with folks as you “drive through” in your car. (Please note that the building will be closed, so if you do this, use the bathroom before you go!!!)
ONLY A FEW SPOTS LEFT!
Many people have had a profound experience with My Grandmother’s Hands, Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies, by Resmaa Menakem. This book provides a method for people of all races and ethnicities to understand how white-body supremacy is reinforced in the US and provides a healing process. For 7 weeks, beginning July 18 and ending before Labor Day, UUCM will host virtual small groups using this resource. We will create separate affinity groups for those who identify as white and those who identify as Black or a person of color. UUCM has a few copies of the book available for purchase. You do not need to have finished reading the book to join a group. If you have questions, contact Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Registration can be completed by clicking here.

They accept donations of goods at the warehouses, along with financial support. Learn more at bridging.org.
