Social justice is a value deeply woven into the fabric of Unitarian Universalism, and made explicit in our seven principles.
This Sunday at UUCB, we will be putting our principles and passions into action!
Sunday, March 26, 10:00am “Risking Justice”
Rev. Douglas Taylor
At times we are caught between trying to keep calm and trying to rock the boat. There is a rick in working for justice that we might unbalance things too much in our work to bring justice. It is a tension we would do well to consider.
10:00 service with workshops at 11:15. Our congregation has hosted an annual ‘Social Justice Sunday’ for many years. This year, instead of a panel discussion on a significant issue, we will host workshops after the service for people to practice acts of hands-on justice-making.
Some of the workshops are:
Assemble Easter Baskets for the children who attend the Trinity Memorial Church soup kitchen on Sundays (all ages)
Prepare “to go” bags for LGBTQ youth who experiencing homelessness or have a need for food and other supplies.
Civic Action Bootcamp: Now let’s act! Following on the recent Civic Action Bootcamp Gay will provide templates for letter-writing and tips for communicating about issues that are meaningful to you. (Ages 10 and up)
Social Action is YOUU! Social Action is at the core of our faith. Come hear about our exciting new structure for social action at UUCB and let’s begin the work together. (adult and youth)
Prepare bagged lunches for women staying at the YWCA (all ages)
