December 2016 Schedule of CCUUF Programs & Activities
Sunday, December 4, 10:15 am. Fellowship Meeting. “A New Reformation.” 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Tradition has it that Martin Luther, dissatisfied with what church had become, posted his list of 95 theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg in 1517, stating in detail what he felt the church was doing wrong and how the church was failing to achieve what it should be and do. Maybe it’s time for a new reformation. What should a church be? What is it failing to do or be in its present form (UU or otherwise.) If you were going to nail your list of theses (proposed changes) to the door of our congregation (or of religion at large), what would the list include? Presentation by Brent Burford followed by a facilitated discussion of this topic.
Sunday, December 4, 12:00 noon. Board Meeting. CCUUF Administrative Board Meeting.
Sunday, December 11, 10:15 am. Fellowship Meeting. Liberation Theology. CCUUF Board Member Virginia Gibbs will be presenting a discussion of Liberation Theology: a religious movement that came about in the 1960s in response to the poverty, social injustice and state violence in Latin America. Stressing service to the poor and struggle for social justice, Liberation Theology affirms that ignoring or profiting from economic and political structures that lead to poverty and misery is sinful. Gibbs will give a short history of major figures, the core beliefs, and some of the controversial aspects of Liberation Theology.
