February 1
"I An an Angry Black Woman," Cathy McGill, Founder/Director, NM Black History Organizing Committee
Race–a hot button, emotional topic that we studiously avoid–takes center stage on the first day of the New Mexico Black History Festival. UUs will have the opportunity to explore and confront pervasive negative racial stereotypes with an eye towards making authentic personal commitments to doing everything we can to create a world that works for all of us.

Music: Spare Parts

February 8
“Learning from Leviathan" Kelsy Atherton
Kelsey Atherton was raised in this church. Now, as a contributing writer for Popular Science, he covers defense technology. War is an awful thing, but it is a moral obligation in the face of that very awfulness that compels him as a UU and as a journalist to engage with the military and the state.

Music: Becky O'Boyle, Viola

February 15
"Good Sex," The Rev. Angela Herrera
As pop culture buzzes with the release of a certain movie this weekend, we are sure to hear plenty in the media from religious conservatives. But what about liberal sexual ethics? UUs have an important contribution to make to the public conversation. A sermon about good (meaning moral!) sex. 

Music: The Chalice Singers

February 22
"Struggle, Embodiment, and Black Humanism" James Galasinski, Ministerial Resident
This sermon will examine the unique contributions that African Americans have made to the humanist movement. Besides adding an important corrective voice by being skeptical of scientific objectivity and recognizing the underbelly of society, black humanists have created their own rich theological vocabulary.

Music: Cantores Festivi
