Hundreds of local Unitarian Universalists will convene on Saturday November 10 for the 5th Annual Assembly of the UUs of Greater Pittsburgh.
Rev. Kathleen McTigue, director of the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice, will be keynote speaker on the topic of “The Faithful Resistance: Prophetic Witness in Dangerous Times”. Unitarian Universalism is generally understood to be a faith that is enacted: we try to show our beliefs by the way we live in the world, and particularly by the ways we show up for justice. But we are living through extraordinary political times, and many of us carry the uneasy feeling that our accustomed ways of enacting our values are not adequate to the dangers of our times. How might we reimagine faithfulness in our times, in ways that give life and power to the work of justice?
A banner parade and minister-led worship service will open the day, which will also include a social justice panel discussion and interactive Q&A session with local justice leaders from the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network, Casa San José, American Civil Liberties Union, UU Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network, and other organizations to help us join the Faithful Resistance!
