Americans are familiar with the phrase "separation of church and state," but few of us understand this complex matter.

With participation in established faith communities dropping dramatically, UU leaders have taken a hard internal look.  In response, Rev. Fredric Muir has called for us to abandon our "trinity of errors"--individualism, exceptionalism, and anti-authoritarianism--and to move forward creatively with generosity, pluralism, and imagination.  Come let us celebrate the Unitarian Universalism that inspires us and that can meet the aching needs of a new generation. Rev. Anastassia Zinke preaching.

Israelites living under the control of the Ancient Greek Empire experienced a great deal of pressure to assimilate to the dominant Greek culture.  Today, many ethnic minorities also experience pressure to assimilate and adopt European cultural traditions.  Dr. Vincent Wimbash counters that we should intentionally disrupt this pattern.  Let us consider this history and Wimbash's recommendations.  Rev.

Even though 99% of UUs general identify as "white," we do not need to have a mono-culture. In fact, diversity is the heritage of the religious freedom at the heart of Unitarian Universalism.

Ada María Isasi-Díaz, the late professor emerita of ethics and theology at Drew University, birthed a new branch of liberation theology rooted in her experiences as a Cuban-American woman -- and gave a term mujerista to that identity and voice. Mujeristas are Latina women living in the USA who are aware of how sexism, ethnic prejudice and economic oppression limits their wholeness of life.
