Resistance often looks like educating, organizing and acting. I am heartened by the powerful work so many organizations are doing now to bring us together and equip us to create a better world. This week we shine a spotlight on the resources available to us through the UU College of Social Justice, courtesy of their director, our colleague Kathleen McTigue.
Ministry within our movement is a vocation lived at the intersection of spirituality and social justice. It's a challenging call these days, as we seek to lead our congregations toward action in the public sphere that stays grounded in our deepest faith values. The UU College of Social Justice is both curating and creating resources for Sanctuary and Solidarity. You will find a wide range of resources and partner organizations in the Congregational Action Guide, webinars specifically guiding discernment for congregational Sanctuary, and other tools that will be updated frequently. - Kathleen McTigue
Resistance can also look like art. People throughout history have resisted injustice with music and poetry, plays and paintings, photography and collage and so many other forms of art. Art can educate and activate. Art can disturb and provoke. Art can soothe and heal. Art can help us remember. Art can point us on our way. This week we offer you a work of art to invite you into your own, courtesy of our colleague Cynthia Leigh Landrum. Cindy has given permission to share and to use. If making multiple copies for something please send Cindy a note letting her know how you are using it.
