Exploring UU History & Influences — New Books on Our Rolling Cart Library

UUs have a long, interesting, and diverse history on both the Unitarian and Universalist sides, with a variety of historical and religious influences combining to create our unique heritage. Thanks to Reverend Nina, we have added the following books to our Rolling Cart Library on this topic for all to share:

  • Roots and Visions: The First Fifty Years of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee by Ghanda Di Figlia
  • Christian Voices in Unitarian Universalism: Contemporary Essays Edited by Kathleen Rolenz
  • Buddhist Voices in Unitarian Universalism (various contributors)
  • A Chosen Faith: An Introduction to Unitarian/Universalism by John Behrens

See me after the service for these books and others, and feel free to contact me anytime. I love to hear from you.

Discussions on Race in America, Session III

Taking the War Out of Our Words: The Art of Powerful Non-Defensive Communication by Sharon S. Ellison

In the final meeting of our discussion group, date currently to be determined, we will explore the techniques of non-defensive communication with ideas taken from this book. Click here to purchase from our UUFS Donation page on Amazon.

How do you talk with someone without debating or discrediting each other? When is this type of strategy useful and when is it better to try another way? We will build on role playing from Session II to try out these methods; however, you need not have attended earlier sessions in order to join us for this one, nor must you have read the book. Contact Janet Takahashi with any questions at social.action.book.group@uufs.org.

 

Note: Buying through the UUA Bookstore provides money to UUA, a worthy cause. If you buy starting from this Amazon link, your purchases directly benefit UUFS.
