The Economic Justice study group is turning its full attention toward the climate crisis. Members and friends of UUMC are invited to participate in a four-session conversation using United Methodist pastor Sharon Delgado’s book, Love in a Time of Climate Change: Honoring Creation, Establishing Justice. Four sessions, once a month on the fourth Monday evening through November, begin August 26th. If you are interested please register HERE.
From the beginning of time, human beings have gathered to listen to stories. One of Jesus' favorite ways to teach was through stories or parables. This fall, you're invited to join us for six sessions on "The Parables of Jesus." Through our time together, we'll get a better sense of what was at the center of Jesus' message. And we hope to catch something of the discovery and surprise that Jesus' listeners experienced as new meanings opened up before them. Please register HERE.
The word “clobber” means to hit hard, defeat heavily, treat or deal with harshly. Christians have long used a few passages in the bible to “clobber” people, especially those who identify or support LGBTQIA individuals. However, they have also been used to justify racism, anti-Semitism and misogyny. We will examine these passages and learn how to respond to those who use them to do harm. You will be equipped to recognize and respond when someone uses these passages to defend their position. Please register HERE.
