Pittsburgh Cluster Annual Assembly 1118
Type of event: Conference
Join us for the 5th Annual Assembly of the Unitarian Universalists of Greater Pittsburgh at the UU Church of the South Hills.
Keynote speaker is Rev. Kathleen McTigue of the UU College of Social Justice speaking on The Faithful Resistance: Prophetic Witness in Dangerous Times.
Unitarian Universalism is generally understood to be a faith that is enacted: we try to show our beliefs by the way we live in the world, and particularly by the ways we show up for justice. But we are living through extraordinary political times, and many of us carry the uneasy feeling that our accustomed ways of enacting our values are not adequate to the dangers of our times. How might we reimagine faithfulness in our times, in ways that give life and power to the work of justice?
The Rev. Kathleen McTigue has been the Director of the UU College of Social Justice since it began in 2012. She served as a parish minister for 25 years, in Winston-Salem, NC and New Haven, CT. She currently resides in Boston, MA.
The UU College of Social Justice is a joint project of the UUA and UUSC and is based in Cambridge, MA. The mission of the College is to inspire, equip, and sustain spiritually grounded action for justice. Its programs include immersion journeys for adults, service-learning and justice training for high school youth, summer internships and justice training for college-age young adults, and a variety of direct volunteer opportunities with grassroots partner groups in the U.S. and overseas.
