UUA 2017-18 Common Read

side by side covers of the two 2017-18 Common Read selections: Daring Democracy and Centering

TWO Books have been chosen for the 2017-18 Common Read

Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry, edited by Mitra Rahnema (Skinner House, 2017), centers the stories, analyses, and insights of a number of Unitarian Universalist religious professionals of color as they explore how racial identity is made both visible and invisible in Unitarian Universalist communities.

Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Wantby Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen, (Beacon Press, 2017) lifts up the importance of democracy itself. It examines the anti-democracy movement that has led to the Trump presidency, then offers a vision and call to action to save our democracy and to take our civic life to a place it has never been.
