Monthly Community Dinner

Our next community dinner will be a pasta dinner on Wednesday, November 8th at 6:00 p.m. A gluten free pasta primavera will be included among the options.

For anyone of any age who would like to stay for a program after dinner, please join us for a guest from the Hindu group (renters of our space) who will share with us about their religious tradition. This is part of our intergenerational Neighborhood Bridges program, which helps us meet our religious neighbors in Greater Danbury and learn a little about their traditions. Later in the month we will visit the Hindu group, on a date TBA.

A big thanks to the Children, Youth, and Family Ministry Team (aka the REMT or Religious Education Ministry Team) for hosting this month’s dinner!

Resources for Learning About Hinduism

This month, through our Neighborhood Bridges program, we have the opportunity to meet our Hindu neighbors. To learn more about Hinduism, check out the following resources:

November 11th: Suze Shaner and Dan Brodax are facilitating Movies with a Message, using Spiritual Cinema’s movie shorts the second Saturday of each month from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. These nights will consist of 1-3 short movies that explore the big questions about life and living (i.e, Who are we? Why are we here? Where are we bound? and What can we become when we live at our highest level of potential? ) with discussion afterwards. You are welcome to bring your dinner. We will supply gluten-free popcorn and bottled water. Donations to UUCD accepted.

The Danbury Chapter of Together Women Rise (formerly Dining for Women) will meet Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm, November 12, at Donna Lawrence’s home. Our chapter evolved over ten years ago after a book discussion on Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.  Mary Ann Kulla will lead this session which features a project in Pakistan titled, “Kaavish: Girl Rising in Pakistan”.  Please check out the website and video on www.togetherwomenrise.org   before the meeting. If you have questions or would like to carpool, please contact Anne Krieg or Judy Lacker. At this meeting we’ll enjoy snacks and beverages instead of a full meal.  There are recipes on the website for Pakistani fare, or just bring a snack you enjoy to share.  Newcomers are welcome! Please R.S.V.P. to Donna Lawrence.
