Give Me Sanctuary

A black minister who is also an accomplished musician, Rev. Greg Drumwright noticed that white churches often welcome him to contribute musically to their worship, but rarely agree to allow him to speak from the pulpit.  This gave rise to his ministry Black Preaching from White Spaces.  Following churches in Atlanta and Kenosha, First Unitarian is honored to be the third mostly-white congregation to welcome Rev. Greg to our pulpit.
In this Sunday’s message, Rev. Greg explores the meaning of offering sanctuary and how this crosses over the lines of religious doctrine.  In a celebration of the UU mantra ‘deeds, not creeds’ he refers to Christian text to underscore that justice cannot and should not be contained by the tenets of particular faith traditions.
