Awake or Woke?
Reverend Kathleen C. Rolenz, Interim Minister
UUCA adopted the 8th Principle in April 2018 –
a move which has called the entire congregation into a journey to counter racism and oppression. Building Beloved Community (BBC) created the 8th Principle Practice Series in response to this commitment with the hope that all 381 members of UUCA take the class at least once as part of waking up to the realities of racism and white supremacy. At the same time, we acknowledge that waking up from the slumber of whiteness can be awkward and painful for white people; and frustrating and exhausting for people of color. How might we – as members striving to build Beloved Community, together, move from being asleep to awake to woke? UUCA Choir will provide.
