If you participated in this program in the Spring, and would like to continue, contact Cory at corythedre@uchbg.org as she will add you to the list. 

I appreciate our congregants interest in our second part of “Parents and Caregivers As Sexuality Educators.” Due to holiday schedules we will begin this program in January. More information will come your way closer to our start date. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding this program or if you need to connect.


Our UU Common Read for 2021-22: Defund Fear by Zach Norris

The UU Common Read builds community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared platform for reflection and a shared focus for action. Further, a Common Read can take us on a powerful faith journey as we explore—each of us, and together—what it means to be human and accountable in a pain-filled world.

The UUA has chosen Defund Fear: Safety Without Policing, Prisons, and Punishment by Zach Norris (Beacon Press, 2021) as the next Common Read.

Learn more about the book from the UUA, available for purchase at the bookstore online.

UCH congregants and friends are invited to begin reading the Common Read as we will begin a discussion group beginning in March led by Rev. David Kohlmeier and Directory of Religious Exploration, Cory Ness.

No agenda – just building connections.
