The Promise and Practice of Our Faith

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? As we learn to lean into our commitment to diversity and embrace the presence and leadership of people of color, white Unitarian Universalists are still figuring out how to to “de-center” our whiteness so that people of color are brought from the margins to the center. Join us as we practice that work, and promise a new way of being together, as we use word and ritual to lift up the voices of Black Unitarian Universalists. (Our offering for the day will go towards supporting Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism — can we reach a goal of donating $10 per member?)
