Mistakes and Miracles Book Discussion

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Mistakes and Miracles, Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin, the UUA’s 2022-23 Common Read. The book looks at what calls Unitarian Universalists to create multicultural, antiracist Beloved Community, what congregations need when they embark on this journey, and what common threads run through their stories. Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin—a white minister and a lay person of color—share how five diverse congregations encounter frustrations and disappointments, as well as hope and wonder, once they commit to the journey. Mistakes abound. Miracles of transformation and joy emerge too.
