8th Principle and Building the Beloved Community
Sunday, May 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Paula Cole Jones and Rev. Stephen Furrer will preach on the 8th Principle, a proposed addition to Unitarian Universalism’s seven faith principles. Come hear a bit of history, context, and why we should covenant to build the Beloved Community free from racism and oppression. The 8th Principle reads: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.” Religious Education version: Build the Beloved Community free from racism and oppression.
Paula Cole Jones is the leader of the 8+ year movement for the UUA to adopt the 8th principle. She is a lifelong member of All Souls Church in Washington DC, and a former President of DRUUM (Diverse & Revolutionary UU Multicultural Ministries).
