We human beings are complex creatures, capable of both good and bad behavior. Even some of our most well-known forebearers behaved in ways that today we consider offensive. What do we do when the people we admire most can’t live up to our expectations?
Our Unitarian Universalist Association describes the Promise and the Practice as a “turning moment; a choice to listen deeply to the stories in our movement that have not been heard, and taken to heart, by all Unitarian Universalists.” It is “a celebration of our shared commitment to live into a new chapter in the story of our UU faith.” Congregations nationwide have held Promise and the Practice services and contributed their offering to support anti-racism and anti-oppression efforts within our denomination and beyond.
Join us at Home of the Brave Park in Symmes Township for our annual potluck picnic and youth service. Bring a dish to share and your own plastic ware (paper products will be available for those who forget). Grills are available onsite. The youth will deliver a service centered on the story "God's Hat," before we eat. The playground and picnic shelter are both accessible. Parents are advised to bring a towel and a change of clothes as there is a splash pad on site.
