UPCOMING SERVICES (10:30 AM):
They Came Before Us
Rev. Doug McCusker
Thanks for the day off, Columbus! However, this Sunday we will celebrate the indigenous people who settled this land long before the arrival of the Europeans. Join us as we consider imperialism and how it is still manifested in our lives.
Lay Leader: Christi Bayha
Blessed Be the Stewards
Rev. Doug McCusker
Think about how many blessings of stewardship have been bestowed on us by people who took care of us and helped us grow. Now think about all the ways that you pay those blessings forward right here in our Fellowship. Join us as we redefine “stewardship” and see how vital it is to everything we do at UUFF. We will recognize our RE teachers and send them forth with our blessings as they do the work of steardship with our children and youth.
Adult Choir will perform
I Am White and Why It Matters
“I don’t see color” is a phrase that one often hears from people, particularly liberal white people, in response to discussions of race and racism. There is a desire to believe that the color of one’s skin no longer matters, and that racism and white privilege are relics of our past. Today we will explore what it means to be a white person today and why it matters.
Margaret recently moved to Richmond from the Outer Banks, where she served the UU congregation as their consulting minister. She has a Masters in Theology with an emphasis in ethics and social theory. She is currently in search of her next professional opportunity while continuing to blog at www.scatteredrevelations.net and guest preach. She is a candidate for UU ministry.
