UU Common Read for Social Justice


7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The UUA has chosen the next Common Read for 2022-23, “Mistakes and Miracles: Congregations on the Road to Multiculturalism”, by Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin, published by the Beacon Press. Our group will discuss this book over Zoom on November 28, at 7 pm.

A white minister and a lay person of color share how five diverse congregations encounter frustrations and disappointments as well as hope and wonder, once they commit to the journey to a multicultural, antiracist Beloved Community.

Since our church, through the Antiracist Ministry Team and Social Justice Council, have embarked on programs for racial Justice, this book will be a valuable resource. It also should provide guidance for implementing the 8th Principle.

We welcome all interested congregants to the discussion. Our library has ordered three copies to share or it can be purchased at Beacon Press for $22 and on Kindle for $9.99. Please contact Barbara Shew, barbrandy51@gmail.com, or joAnn kowalski, jmkowalski10@ gmail.com if you would like to attend so the Zoom information can be sent to you prior to the meeting.
