To move forward in the United States, we must look back and confront the difficult history that has shaped widespread injustice. Revisiting a significant yet overlooked piece of the past, Hasan Kwame Jeffries in his TEDx talk, emphasizes the need to weave historical context, no matter how painful, into our understanding of modern society — so we can disrupt the continuum of inequality massively affecting marginalized communities. Please join Worship Associate, Elisabeth Jas, as we wonder how the celebration of July 4th could benefit from same modern introspection that currently is in place for Columbus Day and Thanksgiving.

Given the wide variety of spiritual journeys among us, Rev. Hank Peirce, Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading, MA contemplates what happens when we think about the different ways that people think about the idea of God. Where does the idea “God” comes from? How does “God” interact with the world? Join Worship Associate, Elisabeth Jas, as we enrich our own journeys by exploring our diverse ideas about God.
