Rev. Allen Harden
Sermon: "Truth and Race History"
In anticipation of MLK Day on Monday, I will try to address the information wars that now surround racial history in the United States, and how they have become
fully enmeshed in American politics and opinion formation. Truth and ideology vie for control of how we write our history, and the narratives we allow to be created
have far-reaching impacts.

New Film Series at BUC Starts November 19

Starting Friday, Nov 19, BUC begins an adult education film series that specifically deals with moral or religious themes. The first film is from 1928:  La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc -  (82 min.) Considered director Carl Theodor Dreyer's finest achievement and one of the greatest movies of all time, this stunning emotional drama recounts the events surrounding Joan of Arc's 1431 heresy trial, burning at the stake and subsequent martyrdom.  The discussion following the film will be an examination of personal integrity, vision of faith and its social consequences.
Time: 7:00 to 9:30pm
Beverly Unitarian Church
Admission is free and all are welcome

Movie: Blue Gold

Friday November 5th, 7:00pm at BUC:  BLUE GOLD (movie)
 Narrated by Malcolm McDowell, this award-winning documentary posits that we're moving closer to a world in which the scramble for water, an increasingly precious commodity, could actually incite war.  Ninety minutes (film) followed by discussion of questions such as Should the supply of water be handled by private companies? Do we pay too little for water in Chicago?  Should we allow other states or other nations to export water from the Great Lakes?  Is water worth fighting a war over and what might prevent that from happening?
