What is The Promise and the Practice? It's a turning moment; a choice to listen deeply to the stories in our movement that have not been heard, and taken to heart, by all Unitarian Universalists.
It’s a lamenting of what our Unitarian Universalist tradition and congregations have lost by being unable – or unwilling – to center people of color (or even, at times, to merely include them).
The Promise and the Practice is a celebration of our shared commitment to live into a new chapter in the story of our UU faith.
A full set of worship & RE materials is available for your Promise & Practice Sunday!
Spirit of Life, Spirit of Love,
We have gathered under the banner of a shared faith.
We are born of a welcoming grace that extends and receives love;
we are touched by the ways we have fallen short of who we strive to be;
and we here we reborn — forged by a greater courage.
Let us move from this place,
Encouraged and refreshed for the journey ahead.
