Like most human beings we Unitarian Universalists have a mixed history when it comes to racial oppression and justice. With UU’s from around the mid-Atlantic gathering here for a Racial Justice Conference let us own our history. It involves the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. Let us also create circles of respect and trust where we can open our hearts, dream and look to the future. We are building beloved community for all people to share in compassion, service and empowerment. Let’s us unfurl our wings and fly together to a people’s church of great spiritual riches.
