“MLK and the Inconvenient Truth of Racism” – Rev. Laurie Bushbaum
Date(s) - 01/19/2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist
On this MLK Sunday, I will try to connect the dots of racism, oppression, and a deeper truth to the death of MLK. Just how difficult is it for those of us with white and class privilege to open our eyes to how we particpate in systems of oppression?
Join us for Worship Services every Sunday at 10 am in the Community Room at Third Street Center in Carbondale.
Special Music with Jimmy Bryne, Greg Feinsinger, and Walter Hanselmann, Religious Exploration with Ana Chynoweth, Preschool with Justice Bouchet
Frequently asked questions:
Where is the worship space, exactly? We meet at the Third Street Center which does have a lot of rooms! As you come in the main entrance, you’ll notice a beautiful room directly in front of you. That is where we have religious exploration classes for our youth. Take a left, and just past the vending machine on the right, you’ll find the hallway to the community room, with beautiful tall windows and string lights. This is our Sanctuary on Sunday mornings.
How accessible is your worship space? We are pleased that someone with a wheelchair will find our services comfortable with close parking, double wide doors, everything is on one level, and the restrooms are also accessible for wheelchair users. We are working on other accessibility improvements such as a hearing loop. Please contact us if there is another accommodation we can provide so we can enjoy your time here with us.
Is there childcare? Every Sunday we have religious exploration for our youth during the service. We worship together as a whole congregation at the start of the service, and then after the Time For All Ages, we sing the kids out for religious exploration classes. As a family, you’re welcome to have your children enjoy the classes or to stay with you for the whole service.
What do people wear? Come as you are. We have dress-on-Sunday best folks with hats, and folks wearing blue-jeans because they just got off the ranch.
