May 6th: UUCR Examining Whiteness class participants
“Examining Whiteness” For the last several months, a group of fourteen UUCR members plus a few others from the Rutland community have met monthly to explore what it means to be white in deeply racist society. In this service, several of the participants will share some of what they’ve discovered about themselves, and about what it means to be white in a way that is respectful, honest, and inclusive.

ALSO: RE SUNDAY- Kids 4-12 are invited to join us downstairs at 10:30am for another installment of Toolbox of Faith. Childcare for Tots (4 and younger) also provided.

May 13th: Rev. Barbara Threet
“Women! In the Pulpit!”

In the late 19th century, group of women became Unitarian ministers in what was then the Wild West (Iowa, Minnesota, and the like). In honor of Mother’s Day, we’ll learn more about this group of our foremothers, and how they influenced our faith.

ALSO: Please note, RE is off duty today (we are all mothers), so no childcare today.

May 20th: Shirley Oskamp
“The Spirit Within Us”
The movement of the Spirit and how the same Spirit lives through us all, despite our surface differences.

May 27th: Nancy Banks
“The Challenge of Change: A Call to Action”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. exhorted people "to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas ... and to face the challenge of change.” For most of us this challenge can be daunting. On Sunday May 27th, Nancy Banks, former Executive Director of UU Mass Action, will talk about how UUs around the country have created to state advocacy networks to wake up to the possibilities of action that are needed today.

June 3rd: Phillip Crossman
"First Impressions: Early Vermont Perceptions of Islam"

Vermonter in the Ottoman Empire and early American perceptions of Islam will be explored. For example, they will learn that one of President George Bush's great-great-great-great grandfathers was from Norwich, Vt and that his nephew (The Reverend George Bush) wrote the first biography of Muhammad published in the U.S.
