We welcome diversity. We commit to undo racism and all other oppressions in ourselves, our church, 

and our community.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
George Eliot

How to Give to the Church
 
You are asked to use our credit card service (which can be reached by the link or the On-line Giving button on our website), the very easy to use Text-to-Give (1-833-361-5796), or checks sent to the office. The on-line giving gives you the option to identify the contribution and use the memo line for checks. A tutorial video on Text-to-Give is here. After setting up an initial “profile” these options are easy to use for subsequent donations.

UUCT Book Club
 
The UUCT Book Group has selected the books for Sept, Oct and Nov so that participants will have time to acquire and read the books.
 
 
Oct 14, 2021: Breathe: A Letter to My Sons by Imani Perry, 2019
Discussion leader: Beth B
“In Breathe, Perry offers a lyrical meditation that connects a painful, proud history of African American struggle with a clarion call for present-day action to protect, defend, and celebrate the promise of the next generation.”
—Stacey Abrams, founder and chair of Fair Fight Action, Inc.
 
Nov 11, 2021: Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd, 2020
Discussion leader: Sally R
Did Jesus Ever Tie the Knot? A New Novel Considers the Question.
“Kidd’s bold narrative revisionism allows her protagonist to be in every respect the equal of her husband while posing this question: How would Western culture be different if men and women had grown in appreciation of each other’s spirit? It’s not such a leap—the gospels portray Jesus gently championing women.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
Dec 9, 2021: Henry Ossian Flipper: West Point's First Black Graduate by Jane Eppinga, 1996 
Discussion leader: Diana B
“In 1878 Henry Ossian Flipper appeared destined for a long military career. Four years later, he was courtmartialed at Fort Davis, Texas for embezzlement of government funds and dismissed from the Army. One hundred years later, his name was cleared ...”
This book was recommended to Diana by the late Winn Bundy, owner of the Singing Winds bookstore in Benson AZ. “The literary center of the universe is supposed to be in New York, but here was this shining light of the literary world living and working on a ranch outside Benson, Arizona,” said J.A. Jance. Bundy earned a bachelor’s degree in history from the UA in 1956 and later master’s degrees in history and library science.
 
 
 
We meet the second Thursday of each month via Zoom Meeting opens by 9:20am, book discussion starts at 9:30am.
