The statewide campaign is being led by UU, Kay Becker. This is a campaign that needs to be ready when public opinion is moved by a high profile person suffering end of life pain. The ACLU is partnering with UUs and Compassion & Choices.
The Corruption of Our Democracy Video Curriculum, TED Talk+ Curriculum
The new Congregational Study/Action Issue, CSAI, voted for at the 2016 UUA General Assembly is The Corruption of Democracy. The official UUA curriculum will come out in November, but few UUs have the time to read books and prepare a course of study. This curriculum includes chalice lights and closings and pointers for conversation. The demographics of TED Talk views overlaps very well with UUs...curious, open people. That makes the facilitating very easy--show the videos and UUs will make the conversation happen. You can access the curriculum here. Or if you contact TerryLeeLowman@gmail.com, he will send you a thumb drive with all the videos and the curriculum loaded on it.

|KELLEY MCRAE DUO
Saturday, January 14, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
With a couple of guitars and a seemingly bottomless supply of effortlessly gorgeous harmonies, their songs display few theatrics and little angst but a lot of coolly measured Americana, every note, every line a marvel of down-to-the-bone minimalism and quiet, soulful pondering.
Music Video - Brighter Than the Blues:
March 11, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
