For our final service answering your January “Question Box” questions, we’ll take on the big, big, big questions. What is God? What is soul? What happens when we die? Is this universe of matter and energy all there is or is there something else? As UUs, we don’t affirm one “right” answer to any of this. But it sure is fun asking the questions! Let’s explore the unknown together. Special music by Onis Dean.

Building the Beloved Community
from our Board President, David Jackoway

Unitarian Universalist identity is shaped in large part by the stories we tell about ourselves. African Americans have had a significant role in our faith since the beginnings of Unitarianism and Universalism, and frequently attempts by black leaders to play a more prominent role in our movement were blocked. But the history of black UUs has not been told. At the MidAmerica Regional Assembly last weekend we were reminded we need to learn the complete story of our history and of the mistakes that were made in the past.

The Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed has been at the forefront of correcting the narrative of African American involvement in Unitarian Universalism. A good place to start is by reading his article in the Fall 2017 issue of the UU World entitled “The black hole in the white UU psyche.” He has published several books on this topic including Black Pioneers in a White Denomination, Darkening the Doorways: Black Trailblazers and Missed Opportunities in Unitarian Universalism, and Revisiting the Empowerment Controversy: Black Power and Unitarian Universalism, all of which are available at the UUA Bookstore or at Amazon.
