LAKELAND UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST FELLOWSHIP

Kwanzaa  Tribute

North Jersey performers Darae Kim and Taehee Jung presented a Kwanzaa Tribute on Dec. 27th, with each artist  performing a celebrated art form of Korean culture -- p'ansori and traditional dance,respectively. 






P'ansori is story-telling by vocal intonations, proclaimed in 2002 by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The story is sung by means of sori (song) with aniri (narration) and ballim (mimetic gestures). The singer's hand-fan in used as a prop to intensify an image. The Gosu, or accompanying drummer, supports the singer, urges the story forward and injects wails of empathy. At LUUF, Kim offered an improvisation of “Arirang,” a signature Korean folk tune.
Jung, a dancer and choreographer, is principal instructor of the Bergen County Korean Dance Company. She has performed in Korea and Japan and was featured on the Korean television network KBS. At LUUF, Jung will present a Korean fan dance (Bucheachum). The Bucheachum dances are inherent to Korea’s celebrations and formal entertainment. Large paper fans with floral designs are oscillated by the dancer to evoke images such as birds, flowers, butterflies and ocean waves. Jung presented a Drum Dance (Changgochum)--performed solo, with the drum loosely fastened to the dancer by a shoulder strap—that integrates jumps, skips and turns.

Guiding Principles

 Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.

Celebrating Equality

LUUF honors the Supreme Court ruling on marriage rights with flying colors.

Unitarian Universalism

​Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.  

Collective Learning:   TRANS 101


The Lakeland Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (LUUF) was proud to host a workshop/presentation on January 17th titled Trans 101 as part of LUUF's commitment to building and maintaining an inclusive, caring, social-justice oriented faith community.  The LUUF congregation and community was welcomed Montclair State University's Lavender Leaders who presented a collective learning about the lived experiences of transgender people and actions allies can take to ensure the wholeness and wellbeing of all members of our communities.

ROOTS OF RACISM

Guest Speaker: Min Mulholland

Racism in our society is so persistent that we may be in danger of viewing racism as a natural social condition.  On Sunday February 7 service, we will discuss features of western ethos and culture that have influenced that "natural" view.  This is a topic of pressing urgency.  We will join in the conversation.
