    Committing to Climate Justice

      Committing to Climate Justice This post is adapted from the 2015 Earth Sunday Sermon for UU Ministry for Earth, “Shifting Energy: From Fossil Fuels to Climate Action.” Read the full sermon and find other worship resources. By Matthew McHale Over the course of climate justice month, we’ve expressed our gratitude for life, we’ve reckoned with our grief and fear about the converging crises of ecological destruction, massive inequality and global warming, and reconnected with our love for earth and for each other. Now is the time when we commit to respond to the climate crisis—because we need to act! So many of us feel overwhelmed and powerless in the face of the crisis. And…

    Safe Space and a Way Forward

    And Natural Extension of Unitarian Unversalist Core Values Talkin’ ’bout unconditional love, equality and justice – This is one way Unitarian Universalist congregations engage their community: When two young adults realized that homeless young adults were falling through the cracks Sam Greenberg and Sarah Rosenkrantz determined to open a shelter to help them find a path forward. When they decided to do something about it, First Parish in Cambridge, MA determined to help by hosting the shelter dedicated to homeless young adults (between the ages of 18 and 24) during the coldest months of the year.

    The Only Way Out is Through

    Our Self-Wrought Epic Disaster “Would you stop yelling about how we’re all screwed?” my supervisor politely asked. Oh. Right. Not exactly the type of thing to yell when you work in an open office like I do at the Unitarian Universalist Association. Especially when perhaps you are using slightly less polite language than “screwed.” We were talking about climate change, of course in light of the new UU-led coalition effort Commit2Respond. And we are screwed. However you express it, we humans are really in trouble. Other life forms on this planet are really in trouble.
