State of the UUnion Book Club: March Meeting

From “Beatitudes for Justice Builders,” by the Rev. Lindi Ramsden, via Worship Web (uua.org/worship/words/blessing/beatitudes-justice-builders). Design by Jess Cullinan.

For the first four months of the new year, we are meeting on the second Sunday to talk about our current political landscape and strategies for understanding and healing the cultural divide in our country. This is an Adult RE activity.

The discussion centers around several readings intended to help us see things from a different perspective and engage in genuine dialogue.

We are using the book The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt as a basis for discussion. It is widely available in paperelectronic, and audio formats.

  • The first two meetings were each attended by over 15 people. We discussed a comic version of one story from the book and part one of the book. People shared stories that informed a personal ideology.
  • The third meeting is scheduled for March 12 at 1 p.m. Dodd Hall. The facilitators would like to discourage walk-ins after 1:15 p.m. Please be prepared to discuss PART TWO of the book. Additional resources (videos, articles) can be found in the Applying Moral Psych section of the book’s website
