UUA’s Principle 8: the call to support the dismantling of racism. The call has gone out, and the UUA communities have answered. Principle 8, in its developmental stage, demonstrates an awareness and a growing commitment to address dismantling racism. Your mission of spiritual wholeness calls for your inward inquiry–your discovering your perspective racism. How can we support one another in such action? Join us as we look inward to answer this question. Join us as well to discover what opportunities exist to support you in this effort. Rev. Bill Heller of Unity will join us on October 30 to lead such an inquiry. He’ll offer the message that matters of healing racism are relevant to any spiritual community devoted to wholeness amongst the people of the UUA community, of our entire country, and for that matter, the world.
