February 3: Breaking the Silence With Martin Luther King, Jr.
Rev. Clovice Lewis, Guest Worship Leader
Lewis will offer a sermon about how MLK influenced him as an African American boy growing up in the 1960s. He examines the lessons MLK taught in light of issues of today concerning continual conflict in the name of the “war on terror.” Explaining how he was able to predict our current and spiritual crisis in a sermon from 2001, Lewis writes, “The accuracy of my predictions are quite easy to explain… they are drawn from an understanding that we have sacrificed our spiritual compass for the sake of political expediency.”
Clovice A. Lewis, Jr., who has composed numerous musical works ranging from ensemble to electronic and orchestral pieces, graduated from the prestigious College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He began teaching as a freshman at the school, and upon completion of his studies, accepted a position as an Associate Professor there and taught until 1985. He was, at the time, one of the youngest professors in the UC system (at 22 years old) to hold such a position. In addition to his experience as a composer and cellist, Clovice has also enjoyed a dual, and extensive career as a technologist and serial entrepreneur. Based in the Silicon Valley, Technology Media Enterprises, has been at the forefront of desktop publishing, computer graphics, 3D modeling and animation, digital audio, computer based training, high level object oriented programming, and multimedia productions. Since 1984, Clovice has created multiple businesses. He is presently at the beginning a new career, studying at the Starr King School of Ministry to become a Unitarian Minister.
 
February 10: Making Murals, Creating Community
Edythe Boone, Guest Speaker
Decades before her nephew’s final words, “I can’t breathe” ignited a national outcry for racial justice, Edythe Boone embodied the truth that black lives matter. This bold muralist, activist and educator works to tackle poverty, racism and inequality—with a paintbrush. She continues to make murals with all who share her yearning for community. After the service, an artist’s reception will include the screening of a documentary, “A New Color: the Art of Being Edythe Boone.”

February 17: Selma For the Complete UU Part II
Rev. Marsh Agobert, Worship Leader
Dr. Martin Luther King addressed UUs on many occasions and this personal connection has a great deal to do with who we are today.
In January we moved through the Universalist and Unitarian history revolving around race, from 1865 (involved, primarily, the ‘Negro matter’) right up to, but not into, the Events of 1964 (The Selma to Montgomery march.) This like so many UU justice issues was steeped in controversy. This month we’ll finish the march and maybe see what it started… in the UU world.
 
February 24: The Question Behind the Question
Minister Cherri Murphy, Guest Worship Leader
With the power and authority that will make a change what is the question that we must ask ourselves in discerning our boldness for justice and love. Because what we really love is only as good as the work we do to create a loving and just world.
Minister Cherri Murphy is a social justice minister in the East Bay area. She is also a member and licensed spiritual practitioner at Heart and Soul Center located in Oakland, Ca.
