August 9:  Willingness   

with Rev. Gy

An important aspect of navigating change is an open mind.  Cultivating the commitment to stay engaged and the stamina to overcome uncertainty and anxiety will help us prepare for the inevitable changes that come at a time of great upheaval.

August 16We Are the Revolution We’ve Been Looking For

with Adel and Tess Johnson

UUCC alumni on two continents will discuss how the pandemic and our governments’ responses affect areas close to us, from nonprofits and major cities to higher education and veterinary medicine, to protesting in a mask and beyond. As things reopen and society begins to return “back to normal,” we’ll look at how we can learn from what we’ve experienced to build a more equitable “normal.” And when all else fails: try a virtual dance party. 

August 23:   Inspiration

with Rev. Gy

In each generation, there are people who have disrupted the norm and influenced the course of history. What are the lessons we can learn from these changemakers as we seek to positively transform ourselves and the world?

August 30 Courage

with Rev. Gy

Maya Angelou once said, “Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency.” As we imagine and work to build the Beloved Community, we must learn how to cultivate the courage to be able to let go of the old and choose love over fear.
