Centering BIPOC Voices: August Discussion
By Robin Gray
In August, we’ll gather on the 14th to share our perspectives on another novel “The Night Watchman” by Louise Erdrich. Booklist waxes eloquent about the book and the author: “A spellbinding, reverent, and resplendent drama…A work of distinct luminosity…Through the personalities and predicaments of her many charismatic characters, and through rapturous descriptions of winter landscapes and steaming meals, sustaining humor and spiritual visitations, Erdrich traces the indelible traumas of racism and sexual violence and celebrates the vitality and depth of Chippewa life…Erdrich at her radiant best.”
Centering BIPOC Voices continues to meet on the Second Saturday at 3:30 PM via Zoom. Our next meeting is Saturday, August 14. New people are always welcome to join in the discussion. Simply contact Robin Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and to be added to the mailing list.
Special Newcomer/Guest Break-out Room Every Sunday After the Service
Newcomers and other guests, whether you have attended one virtual service or many, please join us in a special break-out room any Sunday during the social time following the service. You are welcome to participate in this break-out room more than once. It will be an opportunity for you to get to know us and us to get to know you. You can also share about what brought you to UUCT and ask questions you might have. And if you would rather just participate in one of the general break-out rooms during social time, you are always invited to do so. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the break-out room or about the church, please email: email@example.com

Mindful Meditation- ON HIATUS UNTIL OCTOBER 2021
UU Explorations is a special Small Group Ministry for those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. This is a sharing and listening circle about topics that relate to the theme: What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist? It is an opportunity to get to know others on a deeper level and reflect together on important topics and concepts in Unitarian Universalism. At each gathering, we: check in with each other on how our lives are going, share our thoughts on one of twelve topics, simply listen to one another, and then share any further reflections we have. The circle is specifically not a class or discussion group.
