The Start, Mystery, and Meanings of Spirituals
Jim Thomas
Worship Associate: Elizabeth Cameron

Jim Thomas, founder of the U.S. Slave Song Project, will discuss the arrival of the first group of slaves in Virginia.  He will explore the rules of work given to these slaves that drove them to develop a system of communication–the slave songs/spirituals.  Jim will provide some examples of slave songs with secret codes.  He will describe some ironies including DIXIE!  The presentation will be interactive.

 

UUFF NEWS & EVENTS:
UUFF Child Care Survey
The UUFF Child Care Task Force is in the process of assessing the current and projected future child care needs of our members and friends.
The UUFF Board of Trustees feels that it is important that child care needs at congregational activities be addressed so that people of all ages and stages are more easily able to contribute their time and talents to the Fellowship, and to participate more fully in UUFF social events and activities. The Task Force will make recommendations to the Board about how best to meet child care needs.
Clicking here will take you to a survey that will help us assess needs. It will be important that everyone participate in this survey, regardless of your current age and life stage. The more information we have, the better our final plan will be. We appreciate your commitment to ensuring the future growth and health of the congregation. Please contact Lois or Kirsten if you have any questions.
