TIMELY TOPICS for TOUGH TIMES

Timely Topics for Tough Times Fall Schedule

His is a powerful voice for justice nationwide, and historian Timothy Tyson has named him “the most important progressive political leader in generations.” Dr. Barber’s speeches are both informative and empowering; he gives us clear reasoning and a path to action during these troubled times.

  • Dec. 6: Surviving the Holidays
    Whether you find yourself alone during the holiday season or surrounded (virtually or in person) with a chaotic press of friends and family, the holidays can be stressful in many ways. In this session, we will share thoughts, humor, anecdotes, and antidotes for relieving stress and staying balanced even when we aren’t very merry.

  • Dec. 13: The Meaning(s) of Christmas for UUs
    Unitarians celebrate the diversity of their religious backgrounds and spiritual beliefs. What meaning, then, does this special time of year hold for each of us?  Come share your take on Christmas. Let’s see what a broad palette of thought and celebration we share as UUs.

  • Dec. 20: A Spiritual Yule
    There are those among us who find special meaning at this time of year beyond the traditions of Christianity, Santa Claus, and gift giving. Come enjoy a YULE celebration led by members of our Faces of the Goddess and Earth Spirit groups at GUUF.

  • Dec. 27: A Virtual New Year’s Celebration
    While we may not be able to gather in person, let’s join together and share the love with a virtual New Year’s celebration. We can share memories, traditions, anecdotes, and a short ritual about things we are ready to release, and what we hope to bring forth in the new year.  And Toasting—plenty of toasting!
