"History of Racism in Wood County"
Join us this Sunday for a talk by Dr. Michael Brooks, a professor in the Department of History at BGSU, and author of the 2014 book The Ku Klux Klan in Wood County, Ohio on the history of white supremacy in Wood County.
To UUs, activism, and social justice are two major pillars of our faith. Particularly with the recent discussion of adopting the 8th principle, we UUs cannot truly stand up for what is right and fight for justice if we do not understand or learn the implications of the struggles and hurdles that plagued our community beforehand.
For more information on Dr. Brooks see bgindependentmedia article "KKK history in Wood County Unmasked"

Last week, we learned about Lent by listening to a short story called "Make Room". The kids also learned about Ash Wednesday. We also discussed what each of us would be able to give up for a modified Lent of 7 days (real Lent is 40 days!). Next week, we'll talk about how it felt to sacrifice something we enjoy.
