The UUA selects a Common Read for all Unitarian Universalists every year; this year’s selection was Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018). Pastor David Soliday will lead us in examining the truths that this book has brought to our attention.
According to the UUA website, “In a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, Justice on Earth explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. Those on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book asks us to recognize that our faith calls us to long-haul work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life. It invites us to look at our current challenges through a variety of different perspectives, offers tools to equip us for sustained engagement, and proposes multiple pathways for follow-up action.”
You do not have to have read the book to participate in the service, but if you have, you may like to check out the discussion guide for Justice on Earth (PDF, 34 pages).
Coffee and conversation will take place after the service, with refreshments provided by Carolyn.
The service will be held at The Historic Campbell Home, 190 W. Winter St., Delaware, OH on the northeast corner of Elizabeth Street and West Winter Street. There is parking behind the building with handicap accessibility, as well as on the street.
