The Sorensen Lecture Committee has planned a timely and informative presentation for Sunday, October 17 at 7:00 p.m. “Critical Race Theory: What We Need to Know” will feature a presentation by Dr. John Raible, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the College of Education and Human Sciences at UNL followed by an extensive Question & Answer period moderated by T.J. McDowell, UNL Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (Student Life and Leadership).
Due primarily to the attendance restrictions at our church, the event will be offered exclusively via Zoom and attendance will be limited to our church community and members of OLLI.
As the subject of Critical Race Theory has become extremely controversial recently and, in the opinion of some, extensively misunderstood, the Sorensen Lecture Committee sees this event as an opportunity to not only learn what it is and isn’t, but also to offer an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and to gain insight into the reasons for the conflict of opinions.
The Zoom link will appear in All Church E-Blasts closer to the October 17 event. (It is also on the Event page linked to the Unitarian Church of Lincoln Facebook Social Group.)
Questions about the event may be directed to Dori Bush or Steve Larrick, Co-Chairpersons of the Committee.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend as the Committee strives to provide educational and informative lectures related to important contemporary issues.

The LGBTQA Welcoming Committee is going to host Jackbox games online Friday, September 24, 7-9 pm on Zoom. All you need is a smartphone where you enter your answers or draw pictures.
We look forward to more in person gatherings when it is safe.
We have a lot of fun on Jackbox playing different games from Trivia Murder Party to Quiplash to Drawful (kind of like Pictionary)! The winner of the last game gets to choose the next game for the group.

Each spring our members vote for ten organizations who are then the recipients for ten months of the following church year. The local recipient for September 2021 is the Asian Community and Cultural Center. We encouraged our members and friends to attend the Harvest Moon Festival on Sunday, September 19.
Any monies that are received before the end of September will be given to the Asian Community and Cultural Center (ACCC) in the form of a check next month. CLICK HERE for some ideas of how you might give a donation.
We heard more about the ACCC from Executive Director Sheila Dorsey Vinton as a part of the Sunday Service September 12. Check our YouTube Channel to watch the service or the full interview conducted by our Admin Director Jean Helms.
