SEPTEMBER 6"Racism without Racists"    Rev. Forrest Gilmore 
Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, author of Racism without Racists, writes, "The more we assume that the problem of racism is limited to the Klan, the birthers, the tea party or to the Republican Party, the less we understand that racial domination is a collective process and we are all in this game.” Moving past guilt into effectiveness, how do we see the subtlety of today’s racism and confront it where it stands?
Rev. Forrest Gilmore is a Unitarian Universalist minister, having served congregations in Monterey, CA and Princeton, NJ over ten years before moving into nonprofit work. He is currently the Executive Director of the Shalom Community Center, a resource center and day shelter for people experiencing hunger, homelessness, and poverty in Bloomington, IN.  Forrest is a graduate of Cornell University and Starr King School for the Ministry.


SEPTEMBER 13:  "Shepherding"   Rev. Mary Moore
On this Sunday we will explore what it means for a congregation to care for its members.  We will take a look at some ways in which the ministry of pastoral care can be offered in a congregation the size of UUCCI.
We will also have our monthly Social Action Collection, which will be for the Emergency Assistance Fund of Thrive-Alliance.


SEPTEMBER 20: "We Forgive Ourselves and Each Other"   Rev. Mary Moore
Right in between the Jewish High Holy Days, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we will explore together the idea of forgiveness on this Sunday.


SEPTEMBER 27:  "Singspiration"    Rev. Mary Moore
On this morning we'll carry out a task of this Interim Period and have some fun together in words and song as we explore favorite hymns of this congregation.  Please send your own personal Top Ten Favorite Hymns to me at UUCCI or via e-mail  memmoore@gmail.com by Sunday Sept. 20.  We'll compile a list of these to share -- and we just might be singing several of them on this Sunday!
