Our worship theme this month asks, what does it mean to be a people of resistance? This usually brings to mind images of civil rights movements and standing up actively against something, as it should. But is that the only way to be a people of resistance? I’ve had many conversations through the years with fantastically moral, socially engaged UUs who don’t feel like they can claim the “activist” label. Perhaps because our connotation of activist is too narrow.
What would happen if we saw praise, joy or the creation of beauty as a form of resistance? What if the world needs our praise as much as our picket signs? What if it needs the creation of beauty as much as the elimination of injustice?
Join us this Sunday as we think about the various ways we can be a people of resistance, how we can not only Stand on the Side of Love, but also generate and stand in love.
