Beyond Boxes

Bias is an inescapable part of the human experience, but what we do with, and how we react to our biases is very much in our control. While our natural instinct may be to put things into categories and boxes , there is a space that can enrich our interactions with everyone around us, the space beyond boxes. This Sunday, please join us as our Beyond Categorical Thinking facilitator, Rev. Amanda Schuber, talks about the ways that identity and bias impact our relationships with each other and the wider world.

Rev. Amanda Schuber has served the UU world in various capacities over the last 27 years,
including sitting on the Boards of EQUUAL Access, Interweave, and CUUYAN (Continental
UU Young Adult Network). She has been a Beyond Categorical Thinking facilitator since
2004 and has been privileged to work with well over 50 congregations in that time.
Congregationally, she has held many positions, including social action chair, worship chair,
and DRE.

A graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry, Rev. Schuber is honored to serve as Minister for High Street Unitarian Universalist Church in Macon, GA. Her call to the Ministry currently pulls her to the parish and trauma/chaplain ministry in the more distant future. She is an advocate for disability rights and visibility in the wider world and within our denomination. Specifically, she strives to create a welcoming and supportive space for those living with mental health challenges and their families.
