For the next six weeks the Racial Justice Book Club Discussion Group will be listening instead of reading. We will gather together on Zoom to listen to the podcast, The 1619 Project, and then discuss what we’ve heard, compare to other books we’ve read, apply the lessons we learn to our own lives & discover how we can turn our anger/grief/sadness into action. Each of the six episodes (actually 5 with 1 broken into 2 parts) vary from 29-42 minutes. Please join us even if, especially if, you’ve already heard the podcast. Earmark All Thursdays @ 7pm in October for this! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom Link.
BUUFers prepare and serve lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen.
Berrien UU Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell generously leads the group in planning the meal and dessert and he will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.
The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.
