The struggle of the Standing Rock Sioux to protect the Missouri River is not a new struggle. Indigenous people throughout the world have had to fight to protect their sacred land and waters. Our liberal faith calls us to join in this effort, but how? What are we to do? Today, our Intern Minister will share what she learned as a participant in the “Guardians of the River” program in Nicaragua, sponsored by the UU College of Social Justice.

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.

December 25, 1939, England was at war, and the overall mood was one of fear and anxiety. In his Christmas radio broadcast, King George VI overcame his stutter to read a poem that asked the listener not to search for a light, but to go out into the darkness, to tread “gladly into the night.” Now, in this time of fear and anxiety, made worse by our own personal trials and losses, how can we learn to stop searching for a light, but go – if not gladly, then at least bravely – together, into the night?

On this Independence Day weekend, we remember those who have been forced to flee their homes in search of a place where they can be safe, well, and free. We also recognize all the families that are separated by walls, and we consider our own role in welcoming the stranger.
