Stay Woke

The phrase ‘Stay Woke’ has become a watch word of the Black Lives Matter movement. Being “woke” means being “waking up” to the existence of and the need to challenge problematic norms and systemic injustices to which many of us are “blind.” Drawing from his own experience and the story of the Buddha, Rev. Saxon will share his experience of “waking up” to the call to give life the shape of justice. Members and Friends of UUTC are invited to stay after the 11:00 service to learn more about how they and UUTC can get involved with and support the UU Justice Ministry of NC.

This month's theme: Diversity

Speaker: Rev. John Saxon

The first guiding Principle of Unitarian Universalism is the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
