Announcements

  • COVID-19 Response

    Dear Ones,

    In an effort to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 and protect our members, we have the following updates:

    The building is closed at least until April 6th--no meeting will be held here.  Please continue to meet via Zoom.  Elizabeth Sollie can help you set up meetings if you need assistance. interimminister@bismanuu.org. 

    This Sunday, March 22, the service will only be streamed.  We will send details and post them on the website on Saturday night. The Service will begin at the regular time at 10:30 am.

    Rev. Sollie will have Zoom office hours for business or emotional support.

    Thursdays at 10:00am-11am Join Zoom Meeting

    Wednesdays at 6:00pm-7pm

    Join Zoom Meeting
    https://zoom.us/j/532884641

    And of course, Rev. Sollie is always happy to visit with you one-on-one via Zoom, or the telephone.  Call or e-mail for an appointment. 

    We are very aware that this is a fragile and difficult time and many people feel isolated and worried. Many of us need our religious community more than ever. We also feel a responsibility to do our part in reducing the spread of COVID 19 and reduce the risk to potentially vulnerable people so the board and the minister will make decisions based on these things as we go along. 

    Please take care of yourselves and follow social distancing and hygiene precautions as much as possible.

  • Land Aknowledgement

    Sunday, March 29th 

    with Mary Wilson

    A Land Acknowledgement is a formal statement that recognizes the unique and enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories. This week Mary Wilson will share some information about the growing practice of giving Land Acknowledgments and offer some of her own reflections about how we claim belonging and why it matters.

  • Book Discussion

    POSTPONED

    Join us for a book discussion of White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and Michael Dyson

    Written with white people in mind, this book invites people into the work of learning skills to disrupt racism as a Unitarian Universalist faith commitment and practice. The class will open paths for white participants coming to terms with their own and others’ fragile, defensive, and coded responses when a conversation turns to race. It invites examination of the ways that conversations about race, either interracially or among white people, can—whether one is aware or not—reinforce racial hierarchy. 

    Please read the entire book by the first session. Participants will buy or borrow book on their own.  See Rev. Sollie for information.
