Bear Witness: Saves Lives
Sunday, January 29 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
As we build Beloved Community, it is vital that we are able to share our stories and trust that people will be still and bear witness to us, acknowledge and accept what we share. As witnesses, we must be present with one another with an empathy that honors our different life experiences. CB will share about the spiritual practice of bearing witness and trusting others to bear witness to us, with a particular focus on gender.
CB Beal (they/them) is a fat, white, queer and non-binary UU religious educator, storyteller, speaker, and consultant. CB was the 2019 recipient of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Angus H. MacLean Award for Excellence in Religious Education. They make their home in a factoryfarmhouselibrary loft in western Massachusetts and consult with individuals and organizations to increase consent culture, equity, and justice in the world. You can find them online at Justice and Peace Consulting.
