  • Worship 10:20 am “Incarnation, Proximity, Narrative, Discomfort & Hope”

    January 20, 2019 @ 10:20 am - 11:20 am

    “Incarnation, Proximity, Narrative, Discomfort & Hope”. Sunday – January 20 at 10:20
    January 20, 2019 at 10:20 am Crescendo Choir, Joyful Noise Band, Pastor Jacqueline Duhart, Rev. Sheri Prud'homme
    “Incarnation, Proximity, Narrative, Discomfort & Hope”. The word incarnate literally means “to make flesh.” How do we put flesh on the bones of our activism so that it makes a real difference. Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and author of Just Mercy states that there are 4 elements that make his social change work real and present or incarnate in the world. The four are: proximity, narrative, discomfort and hope. On this Sunday honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, let us come together and explore an additional pathway for our activism. Crescendo Choir will offer us songs from the Civil Rights Movement. Our youth and children will spread poppy seeds and pennines throughout our neighborhood. This is a multi-generational worship service. All are worthy and all are welcome. Please join us.

  • 1st Sundays for Anti-racism and Anti-Oppression

    February 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    First Sundays for Anti-racism and Anti-Oppression

    Racial Identity Caucusing & Potluck

    First Sunday of Every Month | 12:00 to 2:00 pm

    Starr King Room

    All are welcome. Potluck begins as soon as possible after worship service.
    No need to bring food to participate. Childcare available upon request.

    Racial identity is not shaped in a neutral environment. Caucusing provides supportive space where:

    · Self-identified people of color explore how their identity forms in response to racial oppression.

    · People who identify as white explore how their identity forms in response to white supremacy.

    · People who identify as multiracial with white European ancestry may participate with the caucus of their choice or create another.

    As people of faith on a spiritual journey toward wholeness, we gather to understand the dynamics of racial identity and to overcome barriers and oppression created by an individual, institutional, and cultural racism.

    We warmly invite you to join us!

    Sponsored by Journey Toward Wholeness Transformation Team. For more info contact jtw@uuoakland.org.
