Get current best practices on how to advocate in today's legislature. Learn how to prepare for briefings and hearings. And an appointment will be made for you and others from your district to speak directly with your state legislators. Don't miss this important day in Olympia!

    The program for the day is being finalized but it will include a keynote speaker, workshops that will help breakdown the issues, best practices on how to advocate in today's legislature, how to prepare for briefings and hearings and time to meet with others from your district to speak directly with your state legislators.

    Also runners and walkers of faith will show the state of Washington that they are willing to go the extra mile to make background checks on all gun sales law. Those gathered for the advocacy day will assemble on the front steps of the legislative building to greet finishers who have walked or run distances ranging from 5 kilometers to a full marathon. The marathon will follow a route that goes from one faith community to the next in Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater to represent the unity of people of all faiths and persuasions in supporting background checks.

    "Black Nativity" Film

    Sat -Thurs, Jan 25 - 30, varies
    Capitol Theater, 206 Fifth Avenue SE Olympia, WA 98501

    Website.. http://olympiafilmsociety.org/

    Admission/cost.. $5.50 OFS Member, $8.50 General Admission, $4.00 Kids 12 and younger.

    Dir: Kasi Lemmons / 2013 / US / 93 minutes / DCP Inspired by the classic Langston Hughes "gospel song play" that provided its namesake, Kasi Lemmons (Eve's Bayou) Black Nativity adds a modern-day setting and framing story while maintaining the original's focus on the African-American religious experience. Recently unemployed and facing eviction from her Baltimore home, Naima (Jennifer Hudson) sends her teenaged son Langston (Jacob Latimore) to stay with the parents (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett) she has not seen since she ran away years ago as a pregnant teen. Arriving in New York, Langston discovers that his grandfather is a strict Baptist preacher, his grandparents pillars of the Harlem community. Unable (and unwilling) to understand these virtual strangers, Langston goes out into the streets in an attempt to score the money necessary to allow him to reunite with his mother and keep their apartment. Throughout the film, the characters sing both classic gospel songs and original compositions, culminating in Langston's grandfather's congregation?s annual performance of Black Nativity. Mark Kermode of The Observer (UK) says, "Kasi Lemmons" brings warmth and passion to the unashamedly schmaltzy and contrived proceedings, flowing freely between song and dance and drama, climaxing in a celebratory service which will have you tapping your feet, wiping your eye, and loving your neighbor as yourself.

As caring adults, we take responsibility to keep our kids safe from all kinds of dangers. We use seat belts, teach them to be careful crossing the street, make sure they eat healthy foods, get medical and dental care, and many other things that are designed to keep them from harm. In the same way, we need to be proactive about protecting them from sexual abuse and exploitation.

    Stewards of Children is a nationally recognized training designed to help adults better understand the incidence and impact of child sexual abuse and provide them with the tools they need to actively protect children from harm. Participants will hear from experts in the field, as well as from adults who were victims of child sexual abuse, and learn about grooming techniques used to gain access to children, the impact of sexual abuse, and seven easy steps they can take to protect children. The three-hour workshop includes live and video presentations as well as time for questions and discussion.

    Leader: Britt Pomush has 6 years of professional experience working with survivors of sexual and domestic violence. Britt has been in management for over 3 years in both a residential setting and in SafePlace's community services office.

    You've heard the headlines and read the news stories. You are passionate about peace and justice, but the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is the one thing you still can't wrap your mind around. How does one, as a UU, engage ethically and compassionately when faced with differing narratives? How can our understanding lead us toward action? This is the second of a series that examines our seven principles as a guiding framework toward understanding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. In this class we will focus on the last four principles in order to illuminate various aspects of the conflict, and end with a discussion on possible actions we as UUs can take. Participants do not need to have taken the earlier class on the first three principles in order to take this second part. Participants will be asked to do a few short readings during the class, and to have completed The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan, ahead of time if possible. During the class, we will watch short videos, have short presentations and reflective writing prompts, and of course, many dynamic discussions and chances for personal sharing!

During her time at Evergreen, she studied the Israeli/Palestinian conflict extensively, was actively involved with the Mid-East Solidarity Project on campus, and regularly partnered with Jewish Voices for Peace and the Rachel Corrie Foundation.

    Known for their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor, Imam Jamal Rahman, Pastor Don Mackenzie and Rabbi Ted Falcon openly address the usual taboos of interfaith dialogue? the 'awkward' parts of each tradition ? in order to create a more authentic conversation. "How Religion Goes Astray": Many things can keep us apart from each other in our practice of faith. How does religion go astray? What is at the heart of interfaith dialogue? Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman 'now known as the Interfaith Amigos' started working together after 9/11. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom and humor to audiences in the US, Canada, Israel-Palestine and Japan. Their first book, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2009), brought the Interfaith Amigos international attention with coverage from the New York Times, CBS News, the BBC and various NPR programs. Karen Armstrong calls their "exuberant and courageous" second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith (Skylight Paths, 2011), "an inspiration and example for all of us in these sadly polarized times."

    The universe that is our home is incomprehensibly vast, stunningly beautiful, and surprisingly complex. Its components are interrelated over huge distances, and it is nourishing to life and intelligence. It also is incredibly violent and destructive. In earlier times, humankind was much more aware of the star-filled sky. Important activities such as religious rituals and the planting of crops depended on the cycles of the heavens, and astrologers used the positions of the planets to foretell the future. The names we still use for constellations and stars and signs of the zodiac have a romantic, exotic feel, as they're those of ancient gods and goddesses or come from languages such as Latin and Arabic.

    As artificial lighting expanded in industrial societies and light pollution began drowning out all but the brightest celestial objects, people paid much less attention to the night sky. At the same time astronomers and physicists were making discoveries about the universe that earlier peoples could not have begun to imagine. We'll examine all these aspects of our larger home in an effort to develop a fuller understanding of the universe and our own place in it. The exploration will include a variety of activities, including lectures on intriguing facts and some of the more recent scientific findings and speculations, images from the Hubble and other telescopes, group and individual exercises, discussions, guided meditations, and short excerpts from literary readings. If participants are interested and the weather cooperates, an additional optional session may be scheduled with a telescope in a relatively dark nearby location.

    Leader: Gary Worthington has been fascinated with astronomy and cosmology from his early teen years. He incorporated facets of the night sky in his historical novels set in India, and he has used astronomical images in his art work. He has given presentations about the night sky at Cama Beach State Park during the August Perseid meteor showers. He and his wife Sandra recently assisted Goldendale Observatory State Park in obtaining two new computerized telescopes.

    In her book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Michelle Alexander documents the changes in criminal justice over the past 30 years that have resulted in an explosion of the prison population. Our society has developed an unwholesome reliance on incarceration that results in devastating consequences for immigrants, minorities and low-income citizens. A recently formed group, Justice Not Jails, composed of OUUC members and allies from other organizations, is working to address this miscarriage of justice. This class will open the process to our whole community. We will learn how the criminal justice system works and how it might be improved, hearing from various knowledgeable individuals and officials, including representatives from Thurston County's Office of Assigned Counsel. Anyone who would like to join or monitor this effort now may ask the church administrator to be added to our Justice Not Jails Google group.

    Leaders: Steve Tilley and The Reverend Arthur Vaeni. Steve Tilley has long been interested in this issue and is an active member of the Justice Not Jails group. The Reverend Arthur Vaeni is minister of the OUUC.

    Admission/cost.. $10 class fee

    HU is a love song to God. In singing it, or holding it in your mind in time of need, it becomes a prayer. It means we are willing to let the Holy Spirit take care of the affairs of our life according to the divine plan instead of our personal plan. In the book, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, Harold Klemp states, "Divine love has no conditions -- it simply loves. God loves, but not because we deserve it or have earned it. The reason is simply that God is love, therefore God loves. We are Soul, God's creation, and it loves us because that is Its nature. HU can be sung by anyone, whether Christian, Muslim, or any other religion. It isn't meant to change your religion. HU will enhance it." This class will consist of an opening twenty minute discussion of the HU, twenty minutes of singing HU as a community and twenty minutes for voluntary sharing of personal experiences with the HU, an ancient name for God. Participants are welcome to attend only one or all of the three classes. Every class will be uniquely reflective of its participants. For more information about the HU visit www.eckankar.org/hu and check out the video or listen to thousands of people singing this song.

    Leader: Rheo Aieta is a guest cleric of Eckankar, the Religion of the Light and Sound of God.

    April 9, 2014 marks the 75th anniversary of a milestone in our nation's struggle for equal rights and racial justice. Denied the opportunity to sing at Constitution Hall because of her race, internationally-acclaimed, African American contralto Marian Anderson performed at the Lincoln Memorial on Easter Sunday in 1939. This concert, attended by a crowd estimated to number 75,000, hastened the end of segregation in the arts and broke racial barriers for future generations of African American singers.

    The evening will feature a Days of Discovery video production, Marian Anderson: A Song of Dignity and Grace, documenting the life and artistry of Marian Anderson. Recordings of her legendary performances of spirituals will be included.

    The program of video, discussion and Q&A session is presented by Lawrence Huntley. Lawrence Huntley holds music degrees from Mansfield University (PA), East Carolina University, and Indiana University.

    Kimberly Davis, sister of the executed Troy Davis, and Jen Marlowe, who collaborated with Troy's family in writing a book about him will speak twice in Olympia. On September 21, 2011 Troy Anthony Davis was executed by the state of Georgia, even though he was almost certainly innocent. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world protested his execution. Pope Benedict XVI, President Jimmy Carter, and 51 members of Congress all appealed for clemency. The book I Am Troy Davis, coauthored by Jen Marlowe and Davis' sister Martina Davis-Correia, tells the intimate story of an ordinary man caught up in an inexorable tragedy. From his childhood in racially-charged Savannah; to the confused events that led to the 1989 shooting of a police officer; to Davis' sudden arrest, conviction, and two-decade fight to prove his innocence, I Am Troy Davis takes us inside a broken legal system where life and death hangs in the balance. The book is also an inspiring testament to the unbreakable bond of family, to the resilience of love, and that even when you reach the end of justice, voices from across the world will rise together in chorus and proclaim, "I am Troy Davis," and stand together. The afternoon's event is supported by many of Evergreen's academic programs, student organizations and offices. The evening's event is sponsored by the Olympia FOR's Committee for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Olympia FOR invites the public to gather this evening to commemorate the life and legacy of Troy Davis, to expose the human impact of the terribly flawed death penalty system, and to continue the important discussion of Washington State's death penalty. Similar events were held this fall and winter in many other cities nationwide. Read the Real Change article at http://realchangenews.org/index.php/site/archives/8725

    Few questions are more vital to our time than those within the dialog between science and religion. Michael Dowd has made a very important contribution to that dialog through his book, Thank God for Evolution. This book has been endorsed by numerous Nobel Laureates and by many cultural and religious leaders. Michael is a former fundamentalist Christian minister who, with his wife, science writer Connie Barlow, has spent the last 12 years as a self-described "Evolutionary Evangelist," traveling the country spreading the "Good News" of a "New Creation Story" of cosmic evolution. Both Michael and Connie are now UU members and have presented at more than 400 UU congregations, camps and minister retreats.

    This book is unusual in that it is very readable, yet manages to touch upon many of the more profound philosophical and religious questions of our time. Dowd draws heavily upon the seminal thinking of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme and Ken Wilber. Michael's book is a very accessible way to explore this new creation story and could make a substantial contribution to healing the culture wars of our times. It provides considerable and much needed "eros" to the ecological dialog. He is able to translate and bridge the language of religion and the language of science.

    Michael has been gracious enough to provide a free ebook (pdf format) online, which you can download at: Thank God for Evolution-pdf. An audiobook version is available for purchase on the web or may be acquired free for new subscribers to Audible.com. Participants will be expected to read sections of the book prior to class, so that we can spend our time together exploring where our life experience and spiritual search meet this material. We invite you to join these conversations.

    Leaders: Jim Anest and Tom Mull. Enrollment Limit: 20. Jim and Tom are close friends who have each explored various spiritual and philosophical matters for many years
