| Beloved Conversations|
Beloved Conversations is an experiential curriculum that provides a space to reform/refuse the brokenness of racism into new patterns of thought and behavior ushering in social and spiritual healing. New ways of being are learned through the actions of conversation and probing dialogue. This year participants will have a chance to attend the kick-off retreat facilitated by the Rev. Leslie Takahashi and Linda Russell (to be held Friday evening January 26 and all day Saturday, January 27) and twice a month on Sundays.
| Winter Nights Orientation|
All new Winter Nights volunteers must participate in the orientation which will be given by Reverend Neil Anderson. There will be another on Sunday, March 25 @ 10:40 a.m. and an online video. Please try to attend one of the live presentations, as that allows for questions.
| Justice Unfurled (Ministers' Class)|
Join Revs. Neal Anderson and Leslie Takahashi for this midweek Ministers’ class after the Community Dinner. They will explore the intersection of our Unitarian Universalist theologies and history with contemporary justice issues.

| Owning Your Religious Past|
The majority of Unitarian Universalists come into the denomination from other religions; often there have been several stops along the path into our congregations. Some bring with them angry and unresolved feelings about experiences in other religious institutions, others have warm memories. Some move easily into an identity as a Unitarian Universalist; others experience a traumatic estrangement from family and from the center of their culture. This workshop provides some simple tools through which people may reexamine and retrieve positive aspects of past religious connections, while considering their religious futures as Unitarian Universalists.
