11.15 AM

Remember the “Transforming Hearts” modules? In early 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic, UUCSC began the recertification process for a “Welcoming Congregation.” As part of that process, we are showing a series of videos on LGBTQ+ issues, including several about the transgender community. Join us for Module 4, "Trans Experience and Spirituality."  In this session you'll learn about the risk factors involved in being transgender and the ways that race, class, age, ability, and more impact trans experience.

Watch the video via Zoom, and then join the breakout sessions to share feelings and explore questions about the video. Go to the Welcoming Congregation page for the complete schedule and Zoom meeting links for all upcoming videos. For more information, contact Barbara Allen, membership@uustudiocity.org.

10/15/20
7:00 PM 
Zoom meeting

Our book for October is The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson, recommended by Judy Leslie.  According to Kirkus Reviews, “Cussy Mary Carter is a 19-year-old from Troublesome Creek, Kentucky. She was born with a rare genetic condition, and her skin has always been tinged an allover deep blue. Cussy lives with her widowed father, a coal miner who relentlessly attempts to marry her off… A unique story about Appalachia and the healing power of the written word.” 
Our lively discussion will be led by Nancy Holland. For more information and the Zoom link, contact Margery Pope, radkova@sbcglobal.net.
