All of Us Need All of Us to Make It
Litany

Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Theresa Soto writes, "All of us need all of us to make it." I want you to get used to those words; make them your prayer. All of us need all of us to make it.

This is why Unitarian Universalists support the Black Lives Matter movement. Please take a moment to center the struggle for Black lives in your thoughts. {pause}

Say it with me, loud or soft: “All of us need all of us to make it.”

In a world where some of us are targeted for struggle and brutality, where others of us benefit and flourish, we pray:

"All of us need all of us to make it.”

In a world where powerful people of ill will and indifference make us fearful for our safety and our futures, we pray:

"All of us need all of us to make it.”

In the excruciating space that lives between seeing and naming, and hearing and changing, we pray:

"All of us need all of us to make it.”

Make a picture in your mind of someone you aren’t very happy with right now. {pause} Look at their face in your mind, and pray:

"All of us need all of us to make it.”

Unitarian Universalists believe that all of us need all of us to make it; this is why we are in solidarity with the movement for Black lives today and every day.

Amen.
