Saturday, May 27 Humanist symposium



FUS University — noon, Dietrich Room

  • May 7 — “1967 and 2017: African-Americans and Unitarian Universalism.” Exactly 50 years ago, issues of racial justice strongly divided Unitarian Universalists across the country, in ways that never healed. With the UU movement again in the midst of upheaval around race and whiteness, come get an overview of what happened back then and learn how our past informs the current situation. Rev. Jim Foti will be presenting, with a focus on voices of color.
  • May 14 — Talk of the Talk, Dietrich Room. Do our Sunday talks get your mind going? Raise philosophical or theological questions? Remind you of stories from your own life? Join Rev. David for a quick post-assembly discussion of that day’s talk.

Second Sunday Science

May 14 at 9:15 am, Frank Lloyd Wright Room.
