Guest speaker Maria Noel Fernandez of SiliconValleyRising.org. Join us this Sunday as we look at the way the following words, drawn from the UUA website, guide us in our Social Justice work here at UUFS and in the communities around us.
“Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of ’deeds not creeds.’ Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. From grassroots community organizing to interfaith state, national, and corporate advocacy; in protest marches, prayer vigils, and press conferences; in homeless shelters and in prisons, Unitarian Universalists put our faith into action. Our justice efforts are grounded in…our call to break down divisions, heal isolation, and honor the interconnectedness of all life and all justice issues. We model these commitments by creating just, welcoming, and inclusive congregations, and we act in partnership with groups and communities most impacted by injustice on local, state, national, and international levels.”
