“We’ll Build a Land: Holding History, Toward the 8th Principle”

Rev. Chris Long, Guest Preacher, with Rev. Patricia Hart and Jon Sallée, Worship Associate

Rev. Tricia and special guest Rev. Chris Long will engage the theme of “Holding History” this Sunday, as we look toward the possibilities and promises of adding an 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism. Through song and music, we will share together a bit of history around the formation of our Seven Principles. Where are they leading us, now?

Rev. Chris Long is a Unitarian Universalist minister whose call is to cultivate Beloved Community — within UU congregations and in society at large. Rev. Long is currently Minister of Pastoral Care and Programming at Community Church of NYC (UU). His past positions include co-creating and serving as West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church’s first Justice Minister (Cleveland); Visiting Professor at Starr King School for the Ministry (Berkeley); and as part of an anti-racism team at the Leadership Institute at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Chris is a leader in anti-racism efforts throughout the UUA, and has consulted to several UU congregations on leadership, transformation, and on the 8th Principle. 

The service will be live-streamed from the Sanctuary at 10 a.m. The livestream link will be shared here on our website at uusociety.org. If you miss the livestream, a recording of the service will be available on our YouTube channel.
