 #UUWhiteSupremacyTeach-in Continues  Submitted by Wendy Byrn and Mary Heafy

Two-thirds of all congregations in our UU movement participated in the teach-in, which was created by three UU religious educators to examine how white supremacy plays out in UU spaces, including within congregations.  KUUC had a strong turnout at the service on May 7 and the conversation that followed the service.

Some of us have gathered together since Rev. Michael’s sermon on White Supremacy to decide what action we wanted to take next in our lives.  We have decided to start by learning more about the history and current situation for people of the global majority. We will be starting a weekly book group on Wednesday June 7th at 7 o’clock at KUUC in the Sanctuary.  Our first read will be The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander.  Books will be available for purchase at Toadstool or Amazon.   Sign up by calling the church office or at coffee hour; we will send you a study guide. Join us as we continue to learn together.

KUUC OUTDOORS — Sunday July 9 — Rhododendron State Park, Fitzwilliam NH  MEET AT KUUC AT 1:00pm

Rhododendron State Park is named after the 16-acre grove of Rhododendron Maximum, which is the focal point of the park. A 0.6 mile-long universally accessible trail encircles the grove allowing visitors to observe, close up, the fragrant clusters of pink blossoms as they burst into bloom in mid-July. The rhododendron grove, which is the largest in northern New England, was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1982.  For the more ambitious, Little Monadnock Mountain is an additional 3-mile steeper hike.
