SURJ and WORR and Rebuild the Churches!

For those of you not at the worship service this morning, July 12, I want to share this information. Standing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ – pronounced “surge”) is co-sponsoring the national Week of Righteous Resistance (WORR) beginning today, Sunday, July 12, and ending on Saturday, July 18th.

They have asked that congregations either have a sermon or a prayer related to the Black Lives Matter movement today. This morning (at my request), the lay worship leader is sharing the recent statement of Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association. (You can read his statement here.)

Please give to Rebuild the Churches: https://cccathedralstl.dntly.com/fundraiser/5302#/

Today, as our first step in this WORR beyond sharing that statement in the spirit of prayer or meditation, I am asking you to consider giving to the Rebuild the Churches Fund. The UUCiA has its own fundraising page, which you can find at this link.

Thank you for your generosity, and your caring.

Keep checking back this week to see what other actions we might take, or what events/workshops/etc. we might participate in.
