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.

posterCarpool leave church at 5:30 p.m.
Talk begins 6:30 p.m. at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in DC, 1525 Newton St. NW


Three speakers will be presenting a program about the effects of the occupation on Palestinian children.  The speakers;
  • Amanda Weatherspoon – a Unitarian Universalist minister and Black liberation activist from the Bay Area.
  • Ahed Tamimi – a 16 years old, charismatic, and articulate youth, speaking via video from her home in Nabi Saleh, Occupied West Bank.
  • Nadya Tannous –  a writer and organizer in the Bay Area. She has researched the detention of Palestinian minors since 2013.
Some of you may have heard Amanda Weatherspoon speak at the UUA’s General Assembly last summer and many of you heard Bassem Tamimi, Ahed’s father, speak at UUCA in 2014.  A non-violent activist, Bassem was supported as a “Prisoner of Conscience” by Amnesty International during his lengthy incarceration.

The event is part of a nationwide tour with over a dozen sponsoring organizations, including:
  • Black Lives UU (BLUU),
  • Dream Defenders,
  • Interfaith Peace Builders,
  • UUs for Justice in the Middle East (UUJME), and
  • Tree of Life Educational Fund
UUCA’s Committee for Peace and Justice in Israel/Palestine (CPJIP) will be organizing carpooling from the UUCA parking lot with departure at 5:30 pm for those not already downtown or taking public transportation.  Bring a sandwich and a drink or whatever to eat your supper with your fellow carpoolers as we travel through rush hour traffic.   

Please let Allan Kellum ( 703-599-2560) know if you’re planning to attend, especially if you are among the carpoolers.

13th Film image“From Slave to Criminal with One Amendment” 13th Film Screening
UUCA will host a screening of the highly acclaimed documentary film, 13th, by director Ava DuVernay. Centered on race in the United States’ criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which outlawed slavery (unless as punishment for a crime); the film argues that slavery is being effectively perpetuated through mass incarceration. Join us along with representatives from OAR (Offender Aid and Restoration) and VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement) to watch this important narrative and participate in calls to action as we combat discriminatory mass incarceration. Click here to RSVP.

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for disturbing images, language, brief nudity, and drug references.

Third Annual Israel/Palestine Film Series Begins February 19
Two Blue lines imageUUCA’s Committee for Peace and Justice in Israel/Palestine (CPJIP) invites you to join them in attending the first movie viewing of the third annual Israel/Palestine Film Series on Sunday, February 19, at the Washington National Cathedral’s Perry Auditorium. The first film is Two Blue Lines, a documentary examining the human and political situation of the people of the land of Palestine from the years prior to the creation of the Israeli state to the present.  The film will be followed by an audience discussion moderated by Professor Barbara Wien of American University’s School of International Service.  Last year UUCA hosted the second annual “Voices from the Holy Land” film series with some 20 supporting community groups.  This year’s series has grown to 30 groups and this year’s venue is the Washington National Cathedral. Plan to attend some or all of the films which will be at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays February 19, 26, March 5, 26 and April 2, with an addition special event on April 23.  Several of us from the Committee for Peace and Justice in Israel/Palestine (CPJIP) will be carpooling from UUCA (departing at 12:30 pm), eating lunch on or near the Cathedral grounds and attending the film series (there is free admission as well as free parking at the Cathedral).

More information on the series can be found at:  www.VoicesFromTheHolyLand.org. If you plan to carpool, please contact Allan Kellum, CPJIP Convener, a.kellum@verizon.net
or 703-599-2560.

Please join MoonFire for a magical ritual celebrating Brigit, the Celtic Irish Goddess of fire, poetry, healing, childbirth, and many other things.  She was Christianized as Saint Brigid, and much of her lore has been intertwined with the legends of the Saint.  Amongst her many charms is that she is the Goddess of the dawn and creation.  The fire within is the creation that exists within all of us.  We create our lives, our families, and our communities, and to do this in communion with the Mother Goddess is the magic that we practice.  In this ritual we will seek this fire within in three ways:  through the invocation of the Goddess Brigit, by welcoming the magical into our lives, and in creating a candle that we can use in our lives. Candles will be provided, just bring your best magical selves.  

As always, a potluck and time for fellowship will follow the ritual, so bring a dish or drink to share, along with your own plates/utensils, if possible, so that we may minimize trash.  For further information on MoonFire, please visit  www.moonfireuuca.org, or contact moonfirecoords@gmail.com.

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.

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.

VOICE logoIf you have not yet attended a VOICE training in one-on-one relational meetings, now is the time to do it. This workshop is a chance to see how it's done, as well as learn about the larger relationship-building strategies that we are all working to strengthen.

This spring and summer, VOICE congregations will be pairing up with local ethnic communities, schools, other congregations, affordable housing complexes, and "outsider" organizations to build strength in our work and build big numbers for our 2017 push for election turnout and advocacy.  

For more details, and to let us know you're coming, contact David McTaggart, 703-835-6944, or Pat Findikoglu, patfindikoglu@gmail.com.

Fire Next Time book coverLiving the Pledge:  Sharing through Books
Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time

On the fourth Friday of each month, the Live the Pledge initiative will sponsor a discussion and sharing of books written by African-American authors. The first discussion on Friday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m., will be on James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time.  In his essays, Baldwin pictures white America as seen through the eyes of a black man.  Written in 1963, Baldwin reflects on the discontent of the times then; we will reflect on how that relates to now.  What is the same; what is different?

In March, we move into the 21st century and read about our current times in The Fire This Time, a collection of essays and poems compiled by Jesmyn Ward. Both books are available at Arlington and Fairfax libraries or on Amazon.  Please remember to use Amazon Smile to benefit UUCA.

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