Every year, the UUA selects a Common Read for congregations. This year. People’s Church will participate, with conversations facilitated by Rev. Rachel and members of the dismantling racism team.

Authors Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin—a white minister and a lay person of color—explored five UU congregations’ journeys toward Beloved Community. In Mistakes and Miracles: Congregations on the Road to Multiculturalism (Skinner House Books, 2019). They shared the joy, disappointment, and growth these congregations found.

For more information — or to order the book — please contact Rev. Rachel at minister@peopleschurch.net or 269-389-9721. For the first session, we will be reading the introduction, forward and the Some Words About Language section. The book is available from the UUA bookstore, an ebook is available from Amazon.com, there is one copy in the church library, and an audiobook is coming soon.
