This summer, we are framing a number of our services with the 40 days of Action of the Poor People’s Campaign, which began on May 13 and end on June 23. This focus is consistent with the 2014-2018 UUA Congregational Study Action issue, “Escalating Inequality.” The themes for our first three services represent the focuses of the national Poor People’s Campaign for those weeks.
June 17, 2018 at Hopedale Unitarian Universalist Community, “The Laws of God or Man”
This Sunday is part of Week 6 of the Poor People’s Campaign, themed around “The distorted moral narrative”. Bonita Porter’s message is about recent school shootings and how the non-violence movements of Jesus and Dr. King responded to similar violence. Bonita` was recorded into Ministry by the Religious Society of Friends in 1992. Since then, she has worked as a hospital and AIDS hospice chaplain before marrying Bob LaGesse and settling in Oxford in 1996. She currently works with under-represented science and engineering majors at Miami University.
We will share a community potluck at 12:00 noon, followed by an hour-long service at 12:30. Please bring a potluck dish to share.
