Sunday, September 6th, Blue Hills UU’s will continue the discussion begun last week, considering how we, a small congregation, should think about our place in the community. Dividing into smaller groups through the magic of Zoom, the following questions were focus:
- What three or four basic values should be reflected in all our activities?
- What difference do we want to make in the world?
- What specific ends do we want to reach?
- What projects would move us toward these ends?
We will continue this important inquiry on September 6th by hearing from each group as we seek to provide the foundation for building a consensus on how to live out our mission as UU’s. Three additional questions will be asked of individual members to aide in our continued planning: What is my passion? What am I willing to give up (or have given up) to make this happen? What am I looking for in BHUU? What am I getting out of it? What more do I need? Am I willing to give more?
We begin at 10:00 a.m. The Zoom link will be sent to members by Saturday, although all interested are invited to sign in. Visitors may contact Ken Hood > firstname.lastname@example.org for the link needed to join the service.
Those who want to participate, but lack cyberlink connection or equipment to enable, are invited to meet IN the church, masked and distanced ~!~ to watch the presentation on large screen ZOOM.
Several group discussions regarding Racial Justice will take place September 2, 9, 14, 21, and 30th, at either 10:00 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. Based on the book “White Fragility”, April Neilsen will serve as facilitator, but encourages all who are interested whether the book has been read or no. A link will be sent to members the day before, noting the time of meeting.
