How to Be Less Stupid About Race
By Chrystal Fleming

This book is your essential guide to breaking through the half-truths and ridiculous misconceptions that have thoroughly corrupted the way race is represented in the classroom, pop culture, media and politics. Sociologist Chrystal Fleming provides a fresh, accessible and irreverent take on everything that’s wrong with our “national conversation about race”.

Discussion about this book is planned for Sunday, January 13, after the service and lunch as a part of the January Second Sunday program. The gathering will be in the Cottage library at 12:15pm after the lunch. Ten copies of the book will available at no cost on Sunday November 18 th at church. To register or ask questions about the book or the gathering, please contact Holly Hendrickson at hollymhendrickson3@gmail.com or Larry Miller at boxbay@aol.com or in church on Sunday morning.

You can sign up at our table after the service or by email to gmmmartin@sbcglobal.net. Please stop by our table. . .we have had many enthusiastic responses. I look forward to meeting you in person.  Gail Martin

Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser

Our Senior High Youth Group will be accepting walnuts as a fund raiser for their annual Habitat for Humanity Trip through the end of October! We are asking everyone to bring their walnuts from their yard, or with permission, their neighbor's yard, to UUI collection bins we have outside the Social Hall. These can be brought on Sunday mornings or at any time during the week. We will be taking them to a processing company that will clean, crack, and sell them for food. For more information, please contact our Director of Lifespan Religious Education, Susanne Hinson-Rieger (re@uui.org).
