In celebration of Independence Day and drawing from justice themes, this service will explore the ways that freedom inspires us forward, onward, and outward toward what Universalist Clarence Skinner called "an ever larger and more important liberty."
The living tradition which we share draws from many sources. Our second of six sources upholds the words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love. This morning we will explore the prophetic words and deeds of Pete Seeger. Through stories, games, videos, and songs we will walk and sing with a man who truly lived our principles and sources.
Don't miss this Summer service led by The Grateful Gutzlers - Megan, Anna, Rachel, and Kent Gutzler.
Paula Cole Jones is the founder of ADORE (A Dialogue on Race & Ethnicity), a former president of DRUUMM (Diverse and Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries) and an independent consultant specializing in multicultural competencies and institutional change. She lives in Washington, D.C. She will join us to discuss the proposed 8th principle of Unitarian Universalism.
The proposed 8th principle states:
“We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
Take a Sabbath pause in your busy summer. Join us in exploring what it means to be contemplative, how we can be contemplative companions with/for one another, and why it is important in our world today.
