Current Offerings at UUCM (these offerings are on hiatus for the summer and will resume in September 2019)
‘On Being’ Podcast & Potluck – 3rd Friday of the Month (restarting September 2019)
Join us at 6:30pm where we share a potluck meal and listen to a Krista Tippett On Being podcast, which promises “intelligent conversation on religion, meaning, and moral imagination.”
Following dinner, we’ll talk about what we heard. It’s like a book club with no homework! Questions? Call Leslie Bennett.
Reading for Change: The 57 Bus
Time: Thursday, May 9 at 6:00pm
At the May meeting we will discuss The 57 Bus, by Dashka Slater, a compelling, well researched, well written account of what happened when the paths of two teenagers from different backgrounds crossed on a public bus. In this true story, Slater deals with the LGBTQueer issue and questions binary notions not only of gender, but of other culturally resonant binaries as well — of victim and perpetrator, black and white, good and evil. Join us to discuss this bestseller that may challenge your assumptions about identity, community, and the meaning of justice.
The Open Door: A Biweekly Tidbit on the Monthly Theme
Want to add a little intellectual stimulation to your week? Every other week you will receive an electronic “tidbit” with a work of art, a poem or short bit of prose, and two essential questions to get you thinking about connections to ideas and other questions. The format will allow you to engage in dialogue on the Tidbit with its creator and other members of the group for two weeks – until that conversation closes and another begins. You may just want to enjoy but not enter the discussion. It’s up to you.
The tidbits are created by Nancy Baker and have been going on for over a year in Milford. They are meant to be an online adult education opportunity that links UUs in Milford, Nashua, and Manchester so we can get to know each other better and hear new ideas and voices.
