“Bless the Heretics and the Hypocrites”
Rev. Lydia Ferrante-Roseberry, preaching; Chris Rathweg, Worship Associate
Unitarian Universalists often pride themselves in their work for justice — and with good cause. As a religious tradition, we take up many causes to uproot oppression. We seek to live conscious lives, awakened to the injustices of the world. We seek to make a difference in the world. And yet, we find ourselves inextricably part of those ubiquitous systems of oppression. Learn how these inconsistencies bless both our work in the world and the challenges inherent because of our place of relative privilege. As part of our “Justice Sunday” service, we will highlight the work of the UU Service Committee as we focus on the “informal economy.”

This Sunday’s Full-Plate: Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. This nonsectarian organization advances human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. We envision a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights. Nominated by John Balassa.
