Processions: Women, walking and the vote. Led by Claire MacDonald.
Commemorating journeys would not be complete without time to reflect on ways of walking to freedom and what walking to freedom has meant to people across the world. Walking together to become free, and singing together as we go, we will listen to some voices this week from people who have marched, and sung, and left tales and songs behind them.
A 'Death Cafe' is an opportunity to talk openly and frankly about death, so often a taboo subject. Join us around a comforting table of delicious things to eat and drink--so life affirming--and say what's on your mind, and listen to others. There is no set agenda, and everyone will have an opportunity to speak.

We are reading Living with Integrity--Unitarian Values and Beliefs in Practice, edited by Rev Kate Whyman.
Each meeting we discuss a chapter of the book. In this meeting we will discuss the chapter by Bob Pounder called "Working for Justice'".
The book is a collection of Unitarian women and men, ministers and lay people reflecting on how their faith and values affect their daily lives. They write about navigating relationships, bringing up children, coping with loss and death; ways of engaging with the wider world, including the workplace and politics; and responding to urgent global issues, such as migration and abuse of the environment. Each chapter ends with questions to prompt readers to reflect on their own experiences.
