CUUB Youth Service

Beth Havlik and CUUB Youth
Young people are growing up in a world where sexual orientation is more fluid. They are also not as confined by the gender binary. Come join CUUB youth as they put on the service about who we love and how we orient those feelings in relationship to gender. We have a lot to learn from them.

The theme of the month is balance. We will be asking ourselves, what does it mean to be a people of balance? The idea of balance is that we are giving equal weight to opposing forces, creating stability. It sounds so simple. But our world is rarely simple and sometimes thinking of things as two clear opposing forces takes some of the nuance and complication that is needed to see a situation clearly. What if you are partly right, but they have a point to. Come let us explore balance, nuance, mess, and our very complicated human selves as we worship together.
Victimhood and Agency
Sunday, March 11th, 2018
Ever since human being have decided that we owe it to one another to create and helpful and fair society, we have been engaged in a discussion of how to do that well. How do we balance victimhood vs. agency when determining societal aid? In light of the recent #metoo campaign and victims taking agency into their own hands, perhaps it is time to think about aid, not in terms of helping victims, but returning humans to the dignity that our faith believes is their birthright. Come to church and let us find balance and nuance in our complicated role as humans in a society.

What is the difference between reproductive right and reproductive justice? If a person has the right to choose when and how to reproduce but not the resourced to enact that right, can they say they actually have access to that right? Jenny Buyers will bring her expertise on the topic to CUUB this Sunday!

We are the tradition of logic and reason. It seems like every reformation in Unitarian history has been to move spirituality to a place that makes more sense. In doing so, we may have moved away from the deep places of knowing in our body that tell us things we can't appreciate logically. There has been a recent shift to adjust for this movement. But, just as there was a movement away from anything emotional in the 20th century, the 21st century seems to be bringing Unitarian Universalism into a place where emotion is privileged above fact and reason. Is there a balance? Can we find it? Let's try. I'll see you in church.
