Wednesday, January 19, 8 pm EST, Special Service on the UUMUAC Zoom link
"Medicine for Our Times ~ Living the Legacy of Howard Thurman"
with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy
 

Rev. Mellen was invited to preach for UUMUAC (UU Multiracial Unity Action Council) whose mission is  to carry out and foster anti-racist and multiracial unity activities both within and outside the Unitarian Universalist  Association. https://www.uumuac.org/
In this service, Rev. Mellen will share the teachings of Howard Thurman as a source of guidance and insight as we negotiate anti-racist work in our world today. Thurman was called "a saint of the Civil Rights Movement," by Rep. John Lewis. Thurman was a universalist, a mystic, an outstanding preacher, a scholar and a professor at Howard University and also Boston University and one of the most influential African Americans of the last century. He had a profound impact on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  You're invited to join us as we learn from and let Thurman's insights, challenges and paradoxes wash over us with hope. Our contentious world so needs his wisdom and healing words today. Thurman wrote and preached on the power of Negro Spirituals and the Meetinghouse Choir Director, Julane Deener and virtual choir, will join us with some great music for this journey.

Upcoming Service, Sunday 10 am

January 23: "Our Science, Ethics, Discovery of Three Mass Poisonings, and the Long March Toward Truth" with Dr. Seth Frisbie. A drinking water survey in Bangladesh ultimately lead Dr. Seth Frisbie, his wife, Dr. Erika Mitchell, and a small handful of colleagues to discover three mass poisonings: (1) arsenic, manganese, and other toxic elements in Bangladesh’s drinking well water, (2) the possibility of corruption at the World Health Organization, and (3) the significant risk of neurodevelopmental harm from excess manganese in infant formulas sold in the United States. The science behind these discoveries and the ethical challenges they presented will be discuss. And the final victory of truth will be celebrated. Virtual coffee hour after the service.


Dr. Seth H. Frisbie has over 25 years of experience in public health. He earned his B.S. from the University of Massachusetts, his M.S. from Cornell University, and his Ph.D. from Cornell University. Dr. Frisbie is an Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Norwich University. He has worked on public health in Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and many other countries since 1997. Dr. Frisbie has won numerous awards for outstanding research and teaching. You're invited to stay for our virtual coffee hour.
