From the Minister of Congregational and Community Engagement
We are often drawn to community to seek repair, whether for a broken heart, or a broken world, or both. The strength for the work of repair can often be found in the realization that we are not alone in either our pain or our hope.
If you are new to Unity Church, I’d like to extend a special invitation to some of the opportunities coming up yet this winter. The congregational book read in February is an opportunity to explore a common text that expands our anti-racism and multicultural understanding, and Gathering for the Earth is an opportunity to shape Unity’s vision for becoming a Green Sanctuary congregation. As the Minnesota Legislature begins their 2020 session, you will hear of opportunities from Unity’s Community Outreach Teams to bring your voice to some critical policy and funding issues related to climate justice, restorative justice, gun policy, equitable housing funds, and more. Nationally, Unitarian Universalists are working on the 2020 Census and voting rights and registration.
Repair is important spiritual work, and it is made possible by all of the other ways that we worship, pray, learn, and laugh together. We welcome you into this larger shared ministry! See you in church!
