2020 Professional Day Registration

Threading the Needle …Learning to center compassion, grace and liberation is not an easy task for religious professionals in this polarized climate. As Unitarian Universalists, we have an opportunity to create a container to learn how to center liberation, while affirming that we will make mistakes on the journey. How do we de-center whiteness, while not misappropriating? How do we acknowledge power differentials and social locations of each other, while holding each other with compassion?
