Description of Activity

Distribute Taking It Home and invite participants to do the suggested activities before the next meeting.

Offer the following words of Kat Liu and extinguish the chalice:

Some people have argued that Unitarian Universalism is not for everyone, that we cannot be all things to all people. While this is true, the question remains: What, then, will we be, and for whom? If we want to be a religion of the race and class privileged, then we need not change, and we can watch society pass us by. If it is our desire to be prophetic leaders in building a multiethnic, multicultural beloved community, we must step outside our culture-bound viewpoints, recognize that other equally valid viewpoints exist, and intentionally work to see through the eyes of others. Those among us who live on various margins have already had to learn to do this.

May we lead, not lag. May we reclaim the voice of our prophetic faith.

Including All Participants

If any participants have visual impairments, prepare a large-print version of Taking It Home.
