Exploring Diversity Book Group

BAUUC’s Exploring Diversity Book Group is now reading “Cuba, Adios: A Young Man’s Journey to Freedom” by Lorenzo Pablo Martinez. Martinez was one 14,000 Cuban children who
escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime between 1960 and 1962 as part of an airlift known as Operación Pedro Pan. This prize-winning book is a poignant and thoughtful account of one boy’s survival and self-acceptance, written with unflinching honesty and wry humor. Martinez, now a Houstonian, is a bilingual writer and composer with a doctorate in music from
Columbia University. We will gather to discuss the book and share our own experiences on Thursday July 25 at 1:30pm in the church library. For more information, please contact Jane Malin.

Human Sexuality Camp for Youth

The UBarU Camp & Retreat Center in the Texas Hill Country is offering a Human Sexuality Camp this summer on August 4-10.  Based on the values of the “Our Whole Lives” sexuality education program, the camp will include targeted content for rising 8-9th graders (13-14 year olds). We hope this can help fill gaps in human sexuality information for our young people who might have missed BAUUC’s program for the Middle school age.  For more information on this summer’s camp, please contact Kathy Johnson-Throop

Interfaith Women's Pilgrimage

Our country continues to see a mix of exclusionary racial and religious sentiments. As Unitarian Universalists, we know that it is important to keep connecting and healing, and building
interfaith communities. A group of about a dozen local women—UUs, Jews, Muslims, Christians and others—is planning to come together and travel to the Alabama Civil Rights Trail
during the week of October 5-8, 2019. We will visit sites in Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma, and hope to inspire others with our bonding and understanding across religious and
racial divides as only women can do. Four of the travelers are from BAUUC. In order to commit to the journey, some of the women will need financial assistance. The trip will cost $750 per traveler. Please consider making a donation through bauuc.org to support this effort. Be sure to designate your gift to “Social Justice—Women’s Pilgrimage.” Any excess donations will be forwarded to the Houston Coalition Against Hate. For more information on this exciting interfaith project, please contact Cathy Vance.
