LAKELAND UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST FELLOWSHIP
Sunday, Jan. 21st:
“A Politics of Justice”
Guest Minister: Rev. Rob Gregson
Now more than any time since the twin scandals of Watergate and the Pentagon Papers, politics seem further and further away from a shared understanding of “the common good.” Rev. Gregson argues that UUs working together can bring the best of two great communal traditions into a mutually beneficial whole--what he calls “a politics of deep conscience and hard-won compassion.” Come hear about the new possibilities for progressive social change following the Nov. gubernatorial election and our ability to bend the arc of justice in our personal and social lives closer and closer to the ideal of Beloved Community.
