“Misjudging Martha”

Rev. Jenn Gracen

Our history shapes who we are as a community. It tells us stories about what we value. Our history offers us insights into who we might become. What happens if there is another way to look at the stories that shape us?

Maybe you, like me, were raised in a church that taught that your best friend couldn’t go to heaven because she believed differently than you, or that from the moment you were born, you were a sinner. Maybe you’ve been unchurched in your life, but you feel like you would like to belong to a spiritual community, something larger than yourself, something that stands for what you believe in. For yourself. For your children. A spiritual community that believes everyone deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, justice and compassion. That not just one, but many, of the world’s religions have wisdom to teach us. That respects our earth home. That believes the questions we ask on our spiritual journey are more important than being fed answers. That agrees we don’t have to think alike to love alike. If this describes you, join me at the UU church of East Liberty where we extend a hand of welcome to you.

2017-18 Justice Theme: Environment

Our church is focusing on the social justice issue of the environment for the 2017-2018 church year, with activities, programs, and worship services related to the environment, particularly water justice, throughout the year. Look through our upcoming events or newsletter for more details. We will be using the book Blue Future by Maude Barlow as a guide for water justice action.
