We live in an era of uncertainty and fear. Truth has become negotiable. How do we adjust and thrive in the midst of radical changes? A sermon by a member of our young adult community and religious education ministry, a graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School, and a recent organizer in Ohio for United Against Hate, a project of MoveOn.Org. Mr. Brown will analyze the history of exceptionalism through a religious lens, and talk about ways to resist fear and hopelessness in an era when religious texts provide a blueprint for the way to build Heaven on Earth.

Ms. Saru Jayaraman March 8, 2013

Ms. Jayaraman is the author of Behind the Kitchen Door (Cornell University Press 2013). She asks how restaurant workers survive on some of the lowest wages in America and how poor working conditions and exploitation affect the meals that arrive at our restaurant tables.

In her book Ms. Jayaraman argues that, “Sustainability is about contributing to a society that everybody benefits from, not just going organic because you don't want to die from cancer or have a difficult pregnancy. What is a sustainable restaurant? It's one in which as the restaurant grows, the people grow with it.”

The Robert and Jean Zoerheide Lecture Series speaks to the civic values of the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore (Universalist & Unitarian), and provides regular opportunities for public dialogue with leading voices in the Unitarian Universalist and other liberal religious traditions. The series honors our late Minister emeritus and his wife for their years of leadership in Baltimore.

The First Unitarian Church of Baltimore is located at the corner of Charles and Franklin Streets. in downtown Baltimore. Worship Services are held each Sunday at 11:00 am. For more information, visit our website www.firstunitarian.net or call the office, 410-685-2330.
