Sunday October 22 – “Work Of The Heart” Jessy Hennesy
Dismantling racism and white supremacy, in our UU congregations and outside of them, is deeply spiritual work. In the words of Wade McCree, Jr, "If one fights relentlessly against injustice, want, hate and every form of exploitation, then one is a religious person. The love of God is not expressed by ritual or ceremony, but by loving." We'll join over 200 other congregations in the second UU White Supremacy Teach-In.
