Unitarian Universalist White Supremacy Teach-In
Unitarian Universalism is changing. We are striving to redeem our history by working to become a far more inclusive, anti-racist, multi-cultural community than we are today. In hope of helping us take one more step, we are joining more than two hundred Unitarian Universalist congregations across the country in offering a teach-in about white privilege, white fragility and what we mean when we talk about white supremacy. This call to reflection comes from many in our movement, including the UUA Board of Trustees, Black Lives UU, the Minister’s Association, and more. Two Teach-Ins have been scheduled: Wednesday, May 3, 7:15-8:30 p.m., and Saturday, May 6, 1:30-4:30 p.m. Childcare will be provided at both events. Everyone in the congregation is encouraged to attend at least one of the sessions. The workshops will be complimentary, please plan to attend either or both as you are able.
Save the Date for the Contemplative Walk
Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 17, 10:00 a.m., for a Contemplative Walk with Spiritual Director Sarah Cledwyn. We will gather for an opening circle and walking meditation outdoors. If you are someone who connects most deeply with the Holy in the natural world, this gathering is a wonderful chance to experience that connection in community. This gathering will be especially wonderful for people who want to ponder physical activity as spiritual practice. Consider contributing a gratitude offering for this one hour walking meditation. Sign up or ask more questions by contacting Sarah at email@example.com or 651-699-9948.

Saturday Southern Style 5 Animal Kung Fu
This beautiful Chinese martial art emulates the moment and disposition of the Tiger, Snake, Crane, Dragon, and Leopard. Our focus will be on studying the introductory form of this style which incorporates elements from all five animals into an elaborate pattern of intricate movements. Do not expect lots of yelling, kicking any wood boards (ouch), or much of what you see in action movies. Instead, you can expect an excellent practice which builds strength, conditioning, and flexibility, which both calms and invigorates the spirit. This class meets on Saturday mornings, in the Body Room, from 10:00 a.m.–noon, and is for any level of experience ages 16–106. To participate, please contact Bryan Kujawski at 612-750-0221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
