Transforming Hearts Collective - Module 3
Image

8/23/20
11:15 AM
8/26/20
7:00 PM

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 3, "Unpacking the Gender Binary" on Sunday after the service, or the following Wednesday. This module will present a different model for understanding gender expansively, and provide the basis for unlearning our assumptions and approaching gendered differences with curiosity and openness.

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.

7:00 PM 
Zoom meeting

Join us for a lively discussion of the  September book selection Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.  According to Goodreads: “Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.”

Nancy Holland will be our facilitator and will supply the Zoom link at a later date.  For more information, contact Margery Pope at radkova@sbcglobal.net
