Jan 14th “Does White Supremacy Exist in the Mohawk Valley?” In the wake of events like Charlottesville, many people were left wondering if something like that could happen in our town. Oftentimes, white people can’t see the structures around them that produce white supremacy and cause it to persist, but black people can’t avoid them. Patrick Johnson, who works on issues of race in our community, will be giving us his perspective as a black man.

 

Jan 21st Beyond Categorical Thinking” When thinking about hiring, a picture of the “ideal minister” (categorized by age, gender, gender identity, nationality, physical ability, race, and sexual orientation) comes to mind. With this picture in place, it can be easy to unintentionally exclude ministers who fall into certain categories. At times, as we get caught up in comparing candidates to our “picture,” we can even forget what it is we hoped for in a minister. The Beyond Categorical Thinking program is designed to promote inclusive thinking. 

Following the service, there will be a lunch provided and a Beyond Categorical Thinking workshop from 1-4pm. The UUUtica Search Committee invites all congregational leaders, members, and friends to participate. No pre-registration is necessary, but to get an idea of a head count for lunch, please let the Search Committee know if you expect to attend.
