Wednesday, December 9, 2015 from 7 - 8:30 pm at the Fellowship
The PUUF Humanist annual planning meeting will be held Wednesday December 9 at 7pm in the Dawson Auditorium at Palomar UU Fellowship, 1600 Buena Vista Drive, Vista, CA 92081. We'll discuss program options for 2016 and spend some time on a PUUF Humanist response to a request for input from the Strategic Planning Committee. Please bring your ideas and information about resources for 2016 programs.
In 2016 we hope to build on our success in raising awareness about the #blacklivesmatter movement and to broaden our outreach to UU Humanists in San Diego County by working more closely with the cluster of congregations comprising the SD UU Network. We can take what we learned this year from our partnership with Chalice UU presenting "The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross."
The PUUF Humanist Group program has addressed a variety of topics in the past five plus years: Ranging from the history and values of humanists in the US and UU humanists specifically, to theological questions, world problems, local transportation issues, and racism and discrimination, war and peace. In addition to the African American series, the 2015 program year included an exercise in defining welcoming words, information on end of life health care directives, the current status of local community colleges, and information on the San Diego area secular humanist Sunday Assembly San Diego. The year ended with a well received moving November 11 program: “Honoring Veterans through Creative Healing Practices,” organized by PUUF member Ed Carrillo, and featuring veterans from around the country, including several PUUF members.
PUUF has a storied history of confronting marginalization and prejudice in all of its forms. In the coming year PUUF Humanists will support the congregation's work in many areas... from worker and immigrant justice to religious education (and what that means to a humanist), and beyond. We hope you'll join us at the planning meeting to help structure our 2016 program and provide input to the PUUF Strategic Plan.
