December Board Meeting
The Board of Trustees will meet on Wednesday, December 12 at 7pm in the Cottage Library. Some of the topics which will be discussed are the next Stewardship campaign, an update on discussions with the School of Community Learning, and potential bylaws changes. The school has submitted a proposal to expand their space by installing modular classrooms on our campus. A team of UUI board members and staff has been meeting with representatives of the school to discuss the proposal and other issues involving our shared space.
The holidays can be a tough time for lots of reasons. If you're feeling the need for a little extra company or cheer this season, come join us at UUI on December 13 at 6:30pm for a pitch-in dinner, a short and peaceful worship service, and time to share. All are welcome. Spaghetti and drinks will be provided, and everyone is invited to bring a side or dessert to share, if able.
Pub Theology will not meet in December
Our Pub Theology discussion group will not meet in December. See you in January!
The whole family is invited to a Christmas Eve service that includes a traditional “stories and carols” retelling of the Christmas story and a UU exploration of its meaning(s). We will close by singing Silent Night by candlelight.
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 email@example.com or Larry Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or in church on Sunday morning.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
