Religious Education: March 19, 2021

Religious Education & Faith Development
Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation at White Plains
March 19, 2021
2020-2021 Religious Education (RE) theme: JUSTICE & EQUITY
Supporting our young people in understanding justice issues, articulating their values, and engaging in faith in action with CUUC Social Justice teams. Also, supporting youth in developing healthy self-esteem and relationships. 
Drag Queen Story Hour
Invite Friends!

This Saturday, March 20th, 10:00-11:00am
Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children.
DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real. Angel will read 4 books, perform a lip sync song, and engage with the children.  There will also be a bookmark craft! Bring a popsicle stick or slip of paper. Also decorating items like stickers, glue stick with magazine or printed images, or crayons and markers - whatever you have on hand. Come dressed up to add to the fun!  Register to receive the Zoom login Here’s a flyer to share.  Read about DQSH here

Worship 10:00am  

~ Rev. Meredith Garmon, “Hypocrites"
On the one hand, we all fail to live up to our ideals. (If you're fully living up to every one of your ideals, it's time to get some new ideals.) If hypocrisy is merely failing to live up to the ideals we profess, it's not such a bad thing. What is it that's a serious problem? And, aware that noticing other people's hypocrisy comes so much easier to us than noticing our own, what does integrity require of us?
