A UU Common Read creates a community for learning and reflection.

When we do a UU Common Read together, we share in reflection, learning, and action. A UU Common Read can take us on a powerful journey into what it means to be human and accountable in a world filled with both pain and joy.

We will engage the 2022-23 UUA Common Read Mistakes and Miracles: Congregations on the Road to Multiculturalism (Skinner House Books, 2019).

In the book, co-authors Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin—a white minister and a lay person of color—explored five UU congregations’ journeys toward Beloved Community and share the joy, disappointment, and growth these congregations found.

Engaging with this book can help us as a UU congregation grapple with our movement’s charge to dismantle white supremacy in ourselves, our communities, and our world. Doing this Common Read together is one way for a UU faith community to engage in this important work.

The book is available through the UUA at the link above, as well as Amazon/Kindle, Audible, local bookstores, and check your local library in print or audiobook availability.
