Pajama Brainstorming Party

(This Sunday, March 13, 2020, at 11am we will gather EXCLUSIVELY by Zoom on more time. Why? Because our parking lot is filled with snow.)

Pajama Brainstorming Party!

Because we’re all going to wake up tomorrow morning to a new time, and because our parking lot is full of snow, your UUFA programming committee decided to invite EVERYBODY to a Pajama Brainstorming Party on Zoom tomorrow morning.

We’ll enjoy some music together, and then brainstorm what we might wish to learn about the topics in the following chart, and whom we might invite to present on those topics, as well as brainstorm what social action niche our congregation might fill in our Athens community. Members of the programming committee will also ask whether you feel the need for giving feedback to the programming committee.

Your pajamas, your favorite beverages, and your fur babies are most welcome to this special ZOOM-only Sunday morning.

Currently, there are approximately 150 anti-transgender bills moving through state legislatures across the country. From banning participation in sports, to so-called “bathroom bills,” to legislation that criminalizes providing life-saving gender affirming health care, these bills are deadly for trans and nonbinary people of all ages.

To those of you who are trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fabulous, and those of you with children, grandkids and other loved ones who are gender fabulous: we see you in your beauty and wholeness. We send you our love in these scary times.  Our upcoming training may be exactly what you need, or you may have other ways you need to take care of yourself as you and your family face these attacks. Take care of yourself.

To our allies, and gender fabulous folks ready to take action: join Side With Love’s Rev. Michael Crumpler and Rev. Ashley Horan for a conversation on March 15th with our friends at the Trevor Project about this horrifying trend, and what we can do to Side With Love on behalf of our trans and nonbinary kin everywhere. This 101 level webinar will educate and inspire so we may side with love and publicly declare that trans lives are sacred.


Sunday April 10th – We’ll have our annual meeting after the service.
