Sunday Sermon August 7 11am: The Moral Revival – Finding Common Ground


On Sunday, August 7,  at 11am, join us a for a lay service by long time Spirit of Life UU member Terri Willingham , who will be exploring the new Moral Revival movement, based on the Higher Ground Moral Declaration, of which the Unitarian Universalist Association is a signatory.

According to the Moral Revival website, “This Higher Ground Moral Declaration provides a moral agenda for our nation on issues including: democracy and voting rights;poverty and economic justice; workers’ rights; education; health-care; environmental justice; immigrant rights and challenging xenophobia; criminal justice; LGBTQ rights; and war-mongering and the military. For each issue area, an individual moral and constitutional foundation is established. The positions are neither left nor right, nor conservative or liberal. Rather, they are morally defensible, constitutionally consistent, and economically sound. Most importantly, they represent, as Dr. King urged, a revolution in values.”

Join us to consider the notion and implications of this new evangelical agenda being led by the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, and explore the place and history of morality in politics. Terri is co-author of the recent book, Makerspaces in Libraries, and creative partner at the Eureka Factory.

Adult Discussion will be open topic through the end of August – just come in, pour yourself a cup of coffee and join in freewheeling conversation every Sunday, starting at 10:30am.

Between now and the end of August, we’re taking a break from focused lesson plans for our youth, with LRE Lite, providing activities and discussion opportunities, and some time in the sunshine with our permaculture project and recreation, as attendance and interest steer things.
