"Tell It! NAACP Award-Winners Speak Truths
to (White) Power"

Rev. Jane Page, " The Eye of the Beholder"
In Unitarian Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone" episode, "The Eye of the Beholder," he uses a fantasy situation to examine our understanding and value of BEAUTY - especially as it relates to humans. In her message, Rev. Jane uses this episode as a stimulus for an exploration of the reasons we find beauty in the faces and bodies of others. How do evolution and cultural influences affect our perceptions of beauty and our reactions to it? What if our reactions lead to discrimination and unfair treatment of others? How may we expand our concepts of beauty?
Laura Milner, "Ever Mindful: Love in Action"
What does it mean to "Side With Love," as Unitarian Universalist congregations pledge to do? How do we infuse our activism with mindful awareness that embodies compassion and resists the hateful speech we claim to deplore? Today's program invites reflection on these questions.
Rev. Jane Page, " The Obsolete Man"...
is an episode in Unitarian Rod Serling's original series The Twilight Zone, which aired June 2, 1961. In it, a librarian played by Burgess Meredith is tried and found "obsolete" by the totalitarian state since books are outlawed. Another proof of obsolescence is his belief in God. He is sentenced to death. Like other episodes of the Twilight Zone, there are lessons to be learned which are still relevant today. Come explore these with Rev. Jane.
