“DRUUMM community is sacred work that shapes our UU faith and is part of a larger sacred vision that has theological depth and makes room for spirit.” - DRUUMM Values
DRUUMM Texas Retreat
Friday March 31, 2023 through Sunday April 2, 2023
1314 E Oltorf St,
Austin, TX 78704
As part of our faith journey as Unitarian Universalists, we are regularly challenged by the ways race and racism affect our lives and our spirituality. Within our congregations we are creating space to build a community of care among UU People of Color, opportunities to explore deeper questions around race, culture and our religious values.
DRUUMM invites members and BIPOC friends to a special weekend hybrid retreat hosted at our Wildflower Church in Austin, Texas in-person and with a Zoom option. Our goal is to nurture new relationships between UU People of Color across the region and engage in deeper relationship building, spiritual growth, and community organizing.
