Chalice logoNew UU Class
Unitarian Universalism is a way of thinking and being in the world. It is a faith discipline, enriched by faith traditions, that forms the foundation for a way to live this life. It matters how we conduct our lives and work to make the world a better place. Unitarian Universalism wants each of us to know why. It challenges us to deepen our own faith principles and practices in response to our own experience and, whenever possible, to stand on the side of love. There will be plenty of chances to ask questions and to get to know others. This class is also part of the path to membership at UUCA. For more information and registration contact Sarah.Masters@uucava.org .

meditation mindfulnessClasses focus on sitting and walking meditation, different aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, and how to bring the practice into everyday life. Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself. No fee, but donations accepted. Instructor is Jonathan Foust of the Insight Meditation Community of  Washington. See Jonathan's website for more information and class schedule here.

Drum Workshop collage
The workshop cost is $105
Includes one 10” Elk Drum
Registration is limited to 10 participants. Please pre-register to ensure a spot. Visit www.wovengreenmusic.com/event/drum-for-change/ to register

Workshop includes:
  • Smudging Ceremony
  • Meditation - Honoring the elements, water, air, fire, earth and the four directions. Calling the spirit of your drum, preparing the hoop, pulling the hides and creating your mallet.
  • Setting your intention - offering your drum in service.
  • Step by step drum making instruction
When you arrive for the workshop, the heads and lacings will have been soaked in ceremonial water. After the initial smudging ceremony, meditation and blessing, you will learn to weave the lacing on your drum in the four directions pattern. This will be an opportunity for you to begin calling the spirit of your drum.

Once we complete the drum lacing, we will then create the beater for your drum. If you have some special beads or feathers which you’d like to decorate your drum you may also bring them. The drum will take 2-3 days to fully dry before it can be played. The drum face can later be painted if desired.

The drums created in this workshop will be blessed on the Equinox Sunday Service and will be ready to hit the streets in sacred service!

This class offers a form of movement that is particularly well-suited for meditation.  You'll explore practices that will energize and strengthen you, help you release deep-seated tension and cultivate a sense of presence and well-being. The class is designed to be inclusive for all levels of yoga, from new to experienced. 

Class begins as 6:30 and ends at 7:20, giving you time to gently transition to the guided meditation with Jonathan at 7:30.

This class is offered freely so that no one is denied access to the practices. Your donation helps cover the cost of the room and supports the teacher.

Arlington UUs for Social Justice--Where do we go from here!

Join Rev. Linda and UUCA members and friends of UUs for Social Justice as we put our heads together to plan for action to address social justice concerns in today's worrisome political environment. Explore opportunities for collective action such as UUSJ's new Capitol Hill Advocacy Corps. The UU liberal religious voice is critical to be heard, especially in light of threats to our UU principles and values.

Hannah Pitts and Frank Corsoro are UUCA's representatives to UUSJ. Please RSVP to Lavona Grow, UUSJ Advocacy Oversight Committee Chair, lavonagrow@mac.com or 703-786-5206.

Here is something bigger to engage in at this unique point in our congregation - and countries - history. Over 100 members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington have participated in UUSJ (Unitarian Universalist for Social Justice in the Capital Region) events. Many of you have been fighting for social justice for many years here in our congregation and elsewhere in your personal and professional lives.

Now is the time for collective action! Let's activate our own branch of UUSJ right here at UUCA!

Topics for discussion Wednesday will include – an update on UUSJ actions on the Affordable Care Act, collective action opportunities for UUCA members, care of the environment, escalating inequality, protection of hard-won rights for immigrants and our LGBTQ communities among others.

And, bring your own ideas and initiatives with you. This action is for and by the members and friends of UUCA.

Your support of UUSJ has positioned UUCA to take leadership in this fight for social justice. Risk can be mitigated by the strength of our numbers.

Be a part of something bigger than any individual. And see your spiritual connection to one another, our church, and the world grow!

Kids meditation cartoonThe Family Meditation class provides young children (5 to 11 years) with a mindfulness framework to develop healthy responses to the ever-changing world around and inside of them. Children will learn how to express their innate qualities of being present with what is happening, respect for others and nature, loving kindness and compassion.  Planting these seeds at an early age can reduce stress as well as sustain and nourish the mind, body and spirit for a lifetime.  Classes include lessons on basic Buddhist teachings, short meditations, movement exercises and hands on activities geared towards developing mindfulness. Parents attend the classes with their children. Classes are held on the fourth Sunday from 3:30 to 4:30pm in the Chapel.  Questions?  Contact Fred Persi at fpersi@att.net.

Sarah Douglass photoWant to know more about the rich legacy of early American black women writers? How did individual women, enslaved or free, fight racism and slavery through their songs, poems, speeches, and short essays? We’ll find out, by reading aloud and talking about the women’s work and their religious moorings in a casual, welcoming atmosphere. The texts will be provided in class. On Tuesday we’ll encounter works by balladeer Lucy Terry Prince and poet Phillis Wheatley, and on Wednesday we’ll read texts by activists Sarah Forten, Sarah Mapps Douglass, and Maria W. Stewart.

Get a jump on Wellspring Wednesdays: this course meets on TUES., March 21, from 7:15pm-8:30pm as well as WED., March 22, from 7:15pm-8:30pm, but if you can only come to one of the two sessions, that’s fine. We’ll meet in Room 13/15 both evenings. To register, please email Gay Gibson Cima at cimag@georgetown.edu by March 14.

Are you looking for a satisfying way to live our church's ideal of Connect, Grow, Serve?  Do you have a friend you would like to see regularly?  Are you seeking a way to participate in some meaningful community action? Meals on Wheels is for you!

Congregants from UUCA deliver meals on the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month. Many of us arrange to do a route with a friend, giving us a guaranteed time to be together to chat as we make our rounds.  Parents sometimes find this activity a good one to do with children, especially during summer break. When we do the same route for several months, we also get to know the clients, who nearly always seem grateful to converse with a visitor. We serve a diverse population of clients in South Arlington who live in single family homes as well as in high rise and garden apartments. They represent the ethnic and racial diversity of South Arlington, where people from over 100 nations live. Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer is a perfect example of an outreach activity that enables participants to Connect—with fellow congregants as well as the clients, Grow—in knowledge of and sensitivity to others, and Serve—in a very tangible and important way.
   
The time commitment is from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.  The meals are delivered to the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church at 601 N. Vermont St., with the driveway off Carlin Springs Road, a block from Ballston Common.  We go in teams of two, one driver, and one to run the meals in to the clients.  When you sign up, we ask you indicate which of these  you prefer, or say 'either' if it does not matter.

Tina Hinh and Sara Anderson
are the coordinators of the UUCA MoW volunteers.  Please contact us:  Sara: rayandsara@aol.com or 703-532-3830; Tina: tinahinh@gmail.com.  Email Sara and Tina to add your name to the volunteer list serve.

book coverJesmyn Ward used Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time as her inspiration “to call on some of the great thinkers and extraordinary voices of [her] generation to…reckon with the fire of rage and despair and fierce, protective love currently sweeping the streets and campuses of America” in the time following Trayvon Martin’s death.  The result is The Fire This Time that tells stories of race and culture in the twenty-first century. 

On Friday, March 24, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., the LTP Book Group will discuss legacy (essays and poem about the past), reckoning (essays or poems about the present), and jubilee (essays or poems about the future) through the works of a new generation that speaks about race to “wrestle with the specters of race and history in America, and how those specters are haunting us now.”

We hope to see you on March 24.  The Fire This Time is available at Arlington and Fairfax libraries or on Amazon. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Pat Findikoglu or Linda Lutes Corsoro. 
  Please remember to use Amazon Smile to benefit UUCA.

 If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Pat Findikoglu or Linda Lutes Corsoro.
