UUA Common Read 2015 

A Common Read can build community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations. Each year's Common Read is chosen by a committee including both headquarters and field staff of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

This year’s Common Read selection is Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson is this year's selection. Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, has dedicated his legal career to defending those who are trapped by an often capricious, political, and willfully unjust criminal justice system - poor people, people of color, children, and others over whom the system has run roughshod. It speaks to justice, mercy, and compassion, themes of concern to us as Unitarian Universalists and as human beings.

Copies will be available for purchase between services in a week or so. There is a Kindle edition available via Amazon. 

Our discussion is scheduled for noon, Sunday, February 7, 

with a snow date in place for February 14.

Do you want to develop your listening skills, learn about the helping relationship, understand boundaries and self-care for helpers, and learn to be aware of the presence of the sacred in our connections? At A2U2 we are growing a community that transforms lives through the power of love. This 8 hour workshop is our "basic training” for the skills that are needed for the shared ministry that makes our community a loving one. It is also the training for participants who wish to join our Pastoral Care Team or become a Pastoral Visitor. All are invited to participate.

Please sign up ahead of time by emailing Rev. Myke atrevmyke@a2u2.org. There is a limit of 15 people for this class. The workshop builds on itself, so if you are interested, but unable to attend both days, it may be possible to attend the Saturday session without Sunday, but not the Sunday session without having attended Saturday.
