November 5, 2017 – The Promise and the Practice – Rev. Roberta Finkelstein

What would it be like if our worship service centered entirely around the voices and the experiences of black Unitarian Universalists? What truths might we hear, however difficult? What might we learn? How might these black UU leaders teach us to be better allies, better siblings in faith, and even better citizens in our community? In our commitment to embracing the presence and leadership of people of color, white Unitarian Universalists are still learning to de-center our whiteness so that people of color are brought from the margins to the center. Join Rev. Roberta and Worship Associate Linda Sanders this Sunday as we practice that work, and promise a new way of being together.

We will join UU’s around the nation answering the call to support Black Lives of UU. In this service we will reaffirm our ongoing commitment to dismantling white supremacy culture by taking a special collection for Black Lives of UU. We believe that we have abundant resources to address the evils of racism. This will be an opportunity to live out that belief.
