Waking up, Letting Go, Forging Ahead

Last Spring we joined with hundreds of other UU Congregations around the country in the first-ever teach-in dedicated to the dismantling of white supremacy in our institutions and in the world.  This Sunday, Rev. Nancy will be joined by Community Minister and organizer Rev Archene Turner for part two of this ongoing learning experience. Together, we'll reflect on what habits and structures hold us back from being the most effective agents of change we can be.  We'll also ponder the freedom that arises when we let go of the need to know what we're doing.  To dismantle white supremacy, we have to be learners, forging ahead even when the path before us is still being laid.

Seeing Privilege, on Purpose

How racial privilege shapes all aspects of living is a hot topic in the nation and our UU denomination these days. This sermon will revisit a classic essay by Dr. Peggy McIntosh, "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack."  How might we purposefully decide to keep seeing whiteness, and the access and advantages it can bring?

Welcoming All, On Purpose

We affirm that RRUUC is a welcoming place, and our congregational culture is often described as friendly. Welcome matters even more in a time period when many feel under attack. Could we expand our warm hospitality further, making it more explicit that all are welcome? Might we include more people intentionally, as part of our fundamental purpose for being community?
