Please join us on Sunday (22 October 2017) at 11:00 AM for “Fine and Flawed, Proud and Problematic” presented by the children, youth, and adults of All Souls.
On 15 and 22 October 2017, Unitarian Universalist congregations across North America have been revisiting the #uuwhitesupremacyteachin that began last spring.
Originally spurred by a hiring decision at the denominational level that revealed a pattern of white supremacy in hiring decisions, the original purpose of the teach-in was to take an honest look at the way white supremacy culture has affected not only the world outside our doors but also the more subtle ways it has been present within our faith tradition as well.
Our history of working for justice is a proud one in many ways but part of beginning to heal the wounds of institutional racism is looking honestly at those wounds — seeing them for what they are, and acknowledging our own complicity.
In this service, the children and youth will look at ways we go forward and build a better world for all of us.
