Sunday Worship: Social Justice in Action: Making a Difference

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. How does RVUUF’s Social Justice in Action Committee (SJA) make a difference in big and small ways as we support RVUUF’s mission to “Embrace Diversity, Empower Connection & Engage in the Work”?

Led by SJA Co-Chairperson Louise Paré, with Fanny Arjona and Beth Gould

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, organized citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” –Margaret Mead (revised)

Poetry Corner: Where we’re from, where we live

Poetry Corner: Both of today’s poems speak to the importance of community and identity. Louise M. Paré’s poem tells how the connection to her ancestral homeland of Ukraine continues to shape her persona.
