Because of the coronavirus quarantine, there will be no gathering for services at our church, until further notice. Here are our plans for this month’s online services, via Zoom. Some programs, particularly Rev. Threet’s, may vary to address the changing needs of the moment. We all miss being together, but while we are not, we can still keep in touch and help each other in fellowship.

Here is a link to a helpful video on how to use Zoom. (Just click on it, and the video will play!)

May 9th: Rev. Barbara Threet, "A Radical Unitarian"
(UUCR will join Bennington via Zoom)
Theodore Parker (1810-1860) is now considered to have been one of our most influential and important Unitarian ministers, and he was a passionate, abolitionist. He was also an ardent supporter of John Brown (1800-1859), who's still a controversial figure. We'll explore what 'support' meant to Parker, and consider questions of how far one might or should-go in the pursuit of social change.

May 16th: Peighton Carter, "Finding Myself Again"
Our guest will talk about how trauma and health issues affected her identity and ability to feel worthy of love, even from herself. In her initial contact with UUCR, Peighton wrote, "I recently completed my two-year candidate status with the UUA and I am a 4th year seminary student at Iliff School of Theology. My focus is storytelling and narrative justice in relation to disabilities, veterans, Post-Traumatic, Stress, and trauma."Peighton served as a broadcast journalist in the US Army from 2004-2006. She lives with her two children, Whitby and Abbey, and her service dog, Darcy.

May 23rd: TBA

May 30th: Rev. Barbara Threet, "Finding Calm After the Storm"
The past many, many months have felt stormy indeed! And now we approach summer, which usually brings a bit of lull in congregational activities in UU churches. What does summer mean this year - where might we find respite and renewal?

June 6th: Ethan Watters, "Crazy Like Us"
Ethan will discuss America's Most troubling and least understood impact on globalization. Based on his book Crazy Like Us, he reveals that the most devastating consequence of the spread of American culture has not been out golden arches but our bulldozing of the human psyche itself. We are in the process of homogenizing the way the world goes mad. It turns out that we have not only been changing the way the world talks about and treats mental illness --we have been changing the mental illness themselves. As we introduce Americanized ways of treating mental illness, we are in fact spreading our version of these disease.
