In 2016, Unitarian Universalists voted to pay special attention to learning our history and rethinking Thanksgiving in the year 2020, in observance of the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in Plymouth.
As we enter this season of gratitude and care it is important that we come together as a faithful justice movement to strengthen our strategies, our commitments, and our impacts. Now is the perfect time to gather and think together virtually, and to begin celebrating differently, given that usual travels and traditions for Thanksgiving holidays are already ostensibly canceled/altered by a rampant pandemic.
Please sign up, and help spread the word about the fantastic programs and community documentary film screenings being offered for the Harvest the Power Justice Convergence & Teach-In, November 19-26.
Harvest the Power, inspired by Jim Scott’s hymn “Gather the Spirit”, is a six week confluence of Unitarian Universalist Justice ministries (that began Oct. 21) to deepen our relationships, draw on the sources of wholeness and strength in which we are rooted, and move together in powerful ways for justice.
