Monday, February 17, 6:30 pm, Eclectic Readers meets to discuss The UUA Common Read, An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz (Beacon Press, 2015). A Common Read invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. It can build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations. In 2020, the United States will approach the 400th anniversary of the much-mythologized encounter at Plymouth between colonists and those native to the land, and our own General Assembly 2020, in Providence, RI, will speak to the truths that contradict the mythology. This Common Read invites UU congregations, communities, and individuals to learn the story of trauma and resilience that is the Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States.
Wednesday, February 19, Board of Trustee meeting, 6:30 pm. Note that this is a week later than normal.
Sunday, February 23, Cares and Concerns Team will meet shortly after the service.
Looking Ahead: We’ll be having our annual book exchange/dessert potluck probably sometime in March.
