What's UUp March25?

“Going to Extremes”

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Kathy Hurt

Our UU tradition has historically placed a high value on reason, which we often translate into reasonableness and moderation. But are there times when behaviors and positions that might seem unreasonable, even unbalanced, are called for? And what place does passion have, given that it tends to make any of us quite unbalanced?


Immigrant Justice March 25 at 9:45 in the Open Classroom Workshop-Video: “Jose and Mr. Ramos: The Dreamer” (9 min.) Jose Ansaldo is a bright, optimistic kid about to graduate from middle school who dreams of going to college. He came to the U.S. as a child and fears being separated from his mother, and his U.S.-born siblings. http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/videos/jose-mr-ramos-dreamer/   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6taJeGBlgA
