Are We Rome?

Are We Rome?
Is the United States of America a reincarnation the Roman Empire? Some say yes, others say no. I say yes but we don’t have to be. What is a UU response to living in empire? As we look at the role our nation  is taking in the lives of other countries, the question can no longer be ignored. Is this what our nation is called to be at this time in history? As you can see, there are more questions than answers and that’s okay. Sometimes the questions are more important. Let’s explore.




UU Book Club

Our UU Book Club will meet on May 10  at 3 p.m. in the back room of Black Coffee.  We’ve chosen to read “The Kabul Beauty School” by Debbie Rodriguez. Soon after the fall of the Taliban, in 2001, Deborah Rodriguez went to Afghanistan as part of a group offering humanitarian aid to this war-torn nation. Surrounded by men and women whose skills–as doctors, nurses, and therapists–seemed eminently more practical than her own, Rodriguez, a hairdresser, despaired of being of any real use. Yet she soon found she was eagerly sought out by Westerners desperate for a good haircut and by Afghan women, who have a long and proud tradition of running their own beauty salons. Thus an idea was born. Hope you can join us.  Need more info?  Contact Robbie at 828-513-0570.
