College of Social Justice Leadership Trainings

Some have been asking about Social Justice training.  This is not something part of our current line up of gatherings offered at Twinkle’s Place. However, we are happy to share with you that the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice has opened registration to two upcoming trainings:

 

Religious Leaders

UU Naples Job Position Open – Interim DLRE

I am sharing this for two reasons.

First because it is a wonderful opportunity for a DLRE to work with one of the most amazing ministers I know: Tony Fisher! We’ve stood side by side on social justice projects, including speaking together at Standing on the Side of Love/One Billion Rising events in Concord, MA (press references: 2013 and 2014).

Secondly I am sharing this because of the way he describes his congregation as an Oasis and one that is experiencing accelerated organic growth – something I feel each of our UU congregations can create with this kind of thoughtful approach.

Voting Day Pittsfield June 13th, 2017

Today is a voting day in Pittsfield, and while it may not have all the allure and intensity of November’s election, I feel it is important to vote.

I vote because I appreciate the teachers and staff who care for our children in our local schools and cast a vote to support their salaries and programs.  I vote because I appreciate that we have a publicly funded education system available to our children and my ballot adds to the voices of all those who value it. I vote because I would have been vocal in the suffragette movement, so in solidarity and gratitude, I vote today.
