In the days following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, our country has been confronted with the reality of the systemic repression and murder of people of color at the hands of police, and the systemic white supremacy upon which our country was founded. We recognize that this is a transformational moment for our country and our faith, and the MidAmerica Regional Staff is available to support our congregational leaders and members in speaking this prophetic truth. We were moved by the worship service of the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis, and particularly the sermon of Rev. Karen Hutt this past Sunday. May her convicting and impassioned words call you to this moment. Please use the following links to view the full worship service and sermon.
