The 8th Principal: An American Dream

Speaker: Rev. Lori Kyle

******************************* As if over 400 years of evidence wasn’t enough, this past year has been a marker for the need for continued awakening regarding racial justice.  The need is in virtually every aspect of our culture, including religion, and more specifically, including Unitarian Universalism (for example, the UUA recently went through a crisis regarding racially biased hiring practices). Our faith tradition continues to aspire to answer the call to live fully into our existing 7 Principles which extol justice and equity.  In order to respond to this call, an 8th Principle – one that directly addresses building Beloved Community and dismantling racism – is before us for consideration of adoption.   On this Sunday Rev. Lori explores the origins and meaning of the 8th Principle, as well as what it requires from us as a community of faith.

************************************


We welcome all persons to participate fully, openly, and equally, in all aspects of our congregational life, in ever-widening circles of inclusion. We respect and affirm diversity and its gifts in race, ethnicity, national origin, affectional or sexual orientation, family or relationship structure, gender identity, gender expression, sex, abilities, neurodiversity, age, socio-economic class, political views, religious belief, creed, or interpretation of religion.
