6:30 PM Vespers; 7:00 PM Program: Liberation Conversations

Join us for Vespers led by Anna Martin exploring this month’s theme Cultivating Relationship.

Our 7PM program will be “Liberation Conversations.”
Join Eleanor Lane and Jensen Gelfond to discuss what is happening with the Racial Justice Advisory Council and discuss your thoughts on the anti-racism work that is happening or could happen at UUCAvl. We are calling our conversations “Liberation Conversations” to uplift what we are for and move beyond focusing only on what we are against.

Wednesday Vespers & Program themes:

1st Wed.    Theme Talk or Special Program
Discussion about the monthly Soul Matters theme.

2nd Wed.    Liberation Conversations: Pursuing our Congregational Goals to practice Anti-racism. These conversations will provide updates on the work of the Racial Justice Advisory Council and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss why the work of liberation at UUAvl matters.

3rd Wed.    Spiritual Practices: Centering Love
Centering Love – Love is a core value of our UU faith. On the 3rd Wednesdays this fall at 7 p.m., we will center our spiritual practice of love-in-action with self, others, and the world. As Cornel West says, “Justice is what love looks like in public.”

4th Wed.    Theology
We will begin with an introduction to theology: What is it? Do UUs do Theology? Participants will select theological themes for future sessions. Examples: Hope, Death, Forgiveness and Reconciliation, Evil, Covenant.
