Sunday, Nov. 1
Every Day Saints and the Power of Disobedience
Guest Service Leader: Joe Jencks, International Touring Musician
Service Coordinator: Nancy Rupert
The 5th principal of the Unitarian Universalist faith tradition states that we uphold “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” But democratic values live not only at the ballot box, they also live in the streets and in our financial choices.
We talk about civil disobedience as a tool of free and democratic society, and an expression of conscience. But what of ‘economic disobedience’? How can civil dissent lead to strengthening the fabric of community and civil society?
There is no easy answer, and still we ask the questions: Whose voice is left out of the conversation? How are we accepting our own unconscious bias? How do we craft a governing process that can be an expression of agape – of love turned into conscientious action?
Join international touring musician and guest service leader Joe Jencks, on Sunday November 1st, for a celebration and exploration of these questions and more, in story and song.
