Mondays, 7:00-8:00 p.m. – Monday Night Yoga
Monday Night Yoga focuses on restorative stretching, concentrating on loosening major muscle groups. We hold positions and move through gentle, complete cycles. Our focus is on people finding their personal challenge points. The class is 45 minutes long. We are a welcoming, collaborative group meeting at Brunner Chapel at First Unitarian Church.

Mondays, April 10 through June 26, 2023, 9:00 a.m. – Monday in the Park 
Get your week off to a good start with a walk in one of our state, county, or city parks. Each week we will explore a different park (or a different trail within the larger parks.) Walks will last approximately 60 – 90 minutes. With Helena Miller. Please register at this link

Tuesday, June 27, 2023, 4–5 p.m. – “I Never Thought of it That Way” Book Study, Part I – With Gerry Konzelmann
On January 29, Rev. Dr. Larry Peers graced us with the sermon “Fearlessly Curious Conversations,” inspired by Monica Guzman’s work, “I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times.” Those who had read this book and those who found themselves inspired to know more about this work had deep reactions and questions, leading us to move forward scheduling time to discuss each of the five (5) chapters of this work. Consecutive attendance is not a requirement, join us when your schedule permits. After registration you will receive a Summary Guide of that month’s chapter that will assist you in being an active participant. Some participants will have read the book a while ago, while others may not have finished it or even started this book. The goal of these sessions is engagement, not the study of the work. Please register at this link.

  • Tuesday, June 27, 2023, 4-5 p.m. – Part II, Curiosity: perspective, friction, conversation, and traction.
  • Tuesday, July 25, 2023, 4-5 p.m. – Part III, People: assumptions, reason, and opinion.
  • Tuesday, August 22, 2023, 4-5 p.m. – Part IV, Paths: experiences, values, and attachments.

Future sessions will be announced. These meetings offer the choice of in-person at First U in Room 25 or by Zoom.

Gerry Konzelmann has worked in business as a special education teacher and as the vocational rehabilitation service director. Her last position was in New York State as the leader of a Federal School to Work Community Partnership Demonstration Project.

JUNE 2023
Sunday, June 11, 3-5 p.m. – Film: “From Selma to Stonewall”
Featuring Rev. Gil Caldwell, a black, straight preacher and Civil Rights Movement foot soldier, and Marilyn Bennett, a white, lesbian author, and activist, who form an unusual bond as they seek to find the intersection between Civil Rights and LGBTQ+ Equality movements. They start out exploring the similarities, differences, and conflicts between the two movements and find themselves amid today’s struggles—hate crimes, anti-blackness, police brutality, anti-LGBTQ religious hostility, queer youth homelessness, and white supremacy. In the First Unitarian Sanctuary.
