Transcendentalists like Theodore Parker, whose grandfather led the Minutemen on Lexington Common on April 19, 1775, called for a “Second American Revolution” to end slavery. We need to ask ourselves if today we need a Third Revolution, one necessary to prevent a populist regression to racism and autocracy. Join Rev. Dr. John Buehrens as we explore this topic as he discusses his newest book “CONFLAGRATION: How the Transcendentalists Sparked the American Struggle for Racial, Gender and Social Justice."
About the Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Buehrens is the former President of the Unitarian Universalist Association and former Senior Minister of UU San Francisco (2014-2017.) He is the author of many books, including A Chosen Faith: An Introduction to Unitarian Universalism, c-authored with Forrest Church; Understanding the Bible: An Introduction for Skeptics, Seekers, and Religious Liberals (2004); A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-first Century, with Rebecca Ann Parker (2011); and Universalists and Unitarians in America: A People’s History (2011)

When we sing together on Sunday mornings as a congregation we join our voices together to create something bigger than ourselves. But perhaps you don't feel confident singing and would like a few pointers to get more comfortable. Or perhaps you love to sing and would like more time to practice in community. Then this class is for you! On select Sundays when the choir is not singing, one of our wonderful song leaders we will lead us through a little bit of instruction and some practice. So come a little early to church and get your song on!

About the Book:
Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Now, for the first time, acclaimed historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire.
