Standing on the Side of Love in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

The UU Congregation in Andover with flags.
I have been slow in posting here in 2016! Apologies. I have been fighting a mega-cold that just doesn't quit, and so things like blogging have fallen behind.

This Sunday, February 14, is "Standing on the Side of Love Sunday", marking the end of #30DaysOfLove (learn more at the SSL website).

We will be focused on the Black Lives Matter movement and what we can do, further, to show solidarity. The service will end with a congregational reflection.

To the left is the UUCiA and our own Black Lives Matter flag, which we put up with a brief ceremony during a worship service in November 2015. You can read about UU congregations displaying BLM banners here. You can see the (getting more crowded!) map of where UU congregations have displayed a BLM banner or flag here.

Addendum: You can listen to my reflection here.
