Curious about the people and the movements which have shaped Unitarian Universalism? On Wednesday nights March 14, 21 and 28, our Student Minister, Raphael Mills-Warner, will lead a three-part discussion class asking how our history can lead us into better living in the present. The session on March 14 will focus on about the different ways our Unitarian Universalist tradition has interacted with other peoples around the world and the session on March 21 will explore both our eagerness and reluctance to embrace diversity throughout UU history. The final session on March 28 will offer a chance to discover the ways that Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists have helped our movement grow. The class will meet each Wednesday night starting at 7:00pm in the church library.
As part of our commitment to support LGBT people in our community, BAUUC hosts the monthly gatherings of the Clear Lake meeting of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays). The group works to keep families together in loving relationships, helping them understand and affirm their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender family members. PFLAG meetings are on the fourth Sunday of each month at 2:00pm in Cockrell Hall. The next meeting will be on Sunday March 25. For more information, please call the Houston area PFLAG helpline at 713-467-3524.
Easter is Sunday April 1. Each year the BAUUC Religious Education Ministry Team hosts an Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30am. Areas are marked off by age groupings and everyone finds plenty of eggs. Children furnish their own baskets. The Egg Hunt is for the children, but the entire church helps to make it happen. We use recycled plastic eggs recycled from previous years. YOU can help fill them with small wrapped candies and stickers! Bags of empty eggs can be picked up in the Religious Education Wing between March 11 and 25. Please return the stuffed eggs by Wednesday March 28. Thank you!
BAUUC’s Green Sanctuary Team offers opportunities for you to learn more about some of the most important environmental issues facing our planet today. On Wednesdays March 7 and April 4, you are invited to view and discuss Edward Burtynsky’s “Manufactured Landscapes,” an award-winning documentary about the effects of China’s massive industrial revolution. Seeing this comprehensive film in the two monthly meetings will give us plenty of time to meditate on human endeavor and its impact on the planet. For more information, please contact Peter Bowman at email@example.com
