Special Newcomer/Guest Break-out Room Every Sunday After the Service

Newcomers and other guests, whether you have attended one virtual service or many, please join us in a special break-out room any Sunday during the social time following the service. You are welcome to participate in this break-out room more than once. It will be an opportunity for you to get to know us and us to get to know you. You can also share about what brought you to UUCT and ask questions you might have. And if you would rather just participate in one of the general break-out rooms during social time, you are always invited to do so. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the break-out room or about the church, please email: welcome@uutallahassee.org

Mindful Meditation

You are welcome to join us every Sunday from 3 PM to 4 PM on Zoom. We are a community of meditators who come together for a chance to center ourselves with calm and focus. Each week a member of the group leads the meditation, drawing from a variety of Buddhist thought. Our usual practice starts with a guided meditation or a passage reading while seated, followed by a walking meditation, then finishing with a silent meditation. At the conclusion, we share our experiences with each other.

Whether you are new or seasoned to the practice of meditation, all are welcome. Please email Ardenkelly@yahoo.com for the Zoom link invitation to be sent to you every Saturday.

Arden Kelly is a Director & Teaching Artist Acting/Voice & Speech/Voiceover/Singer pursuing a Masters in London

Food For Thought – Can we lower our chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease?

By Linda Oaksford

Can we lower our chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease? Can we really avoid losing our cognitive abilities as we age?

At our April 8th 2021 Food For Thought zoom meeting, we will find out how to keep our brains healthy – what foods to eat and what habits we should develop. We will watch two short videos, one by Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine and the other featuring Dr. Greger, author of the book, How Not to Die.

We will also learn about Dr. Fuhrman’s G-BOMBS, the acronym for the foods that build up our immune systems, which is so critical during this pandemic.

Come join us on Thursday, April 8th at 7:00 PM. If you are not on the Food For Thought mailing list, please contact Linda Oaksford at lloaksford@gmail.com, so that you will receive the link for the zoom meeting.

 


Church Work Day Next Saturday

Join us Saturday, April 10 from 9 AM – 2 PM for our monthly church work day.

Feel free to bring your lunch. Social distancing guidelines will be followed.  For more information contact Bonnie Abellera.

Even if you can only help for an hour or two, that will be appreciated. 

Hope to see you there!

 


Centering BIPOC Voices Reading Ta-Nehisi Coates

By Robin Gray

The book under discussion for our April meeting is Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Published in 2015, Between the World and Me was inspired by James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time. Both books are addressed to young black men trying to grow up in a world that makes little room for them. Both books offer suggestions that invite us to look at white privilege and the fabric of a nation founded on the presumption of white superiority. Join us in responding to this contemporary reflection on the prevalence and presence of racism in our country.

We will meet on Zoom Saturday, April 10, at 3:30 PM. For more information on Centering BIPOC Voices and the commitment we make to each other at discussions contact Robin Gray (robingray021@gmail.com).

We are in the process of selecting readings for May and June and will publish the results in early April.

 


Christian Spirituality @ UUCT

Join us for a twice-monthly, Zoom Bible study. While each week’s Bible passage will be the focus of the meeting, the real purpose of Christian Spirituality is to create a friendly association, to give and receive support, and to find our lives expressed in the Bible.

Our meetings will be the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM For zoom information contact Alana Katherine “Kay” Stuart-Tilley at kaystuart545@gmail.com Our next meeting is April 14.
