LAKELAND UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST FELLOWSHIP
Sunday, Sept. 25th 11:00 A.M.
Unitarian Universalism and Race:
Why Are We So White?
Unitarian Universalism's first principle recognizes "the inherent dignity of every person." It is no surprise then that UU's have been active in the most important social justice and racial justice movements in America's history, whether the abolitionist movement of the 1800's, the civil rights movement of the 1960's or the Black Lives Matter movement of today. With this in mind, why is the overwhelming majority of Unitarian Universalists white?
For answers, we will look at the UU "black empowerment controversy" of the 1960's as well as statements made at this past June's General Assembly about the current African American UU experience.
Speaker: LUUF President Carol Swift
LUUF's organic garden continues to support the Wayne Interfaith Network Food Pantry with donations of fresh produce. The lettuce, kale and more is already looking great. A recent Monday harvest pictured below shows LUUF's organic gardeners tending the beds, picking what's ready, and the weekly delivery to Herb Schuman, vice president and coordinator of the pantry, where it was distributed to appreciative clients later that day.
The Garden Committee could use your help! If interested, please see Rose H., Pat K. or Steve K.
Our community welcomes you, and your family.
Join us every Sunday for provocative programs featuring music, meditation, fellowship and spiritual connection.

Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.
