The Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed is a distinguished Unitarian Universalist minister, now retired after 26 years of service. Black Pioneers in a White Denomination, the book that grew from his graduate thesis, remains an important work in Unitarian Universalist history. This morning we will hear stories of some of the black pioneers in this predominantly white denomination. How can we learn from their experiences as we strive to grow into our dream of anti-racist, multi-racial, multi-cultural religious community?
Our annual RE Sunday is a time to celebrate! We are sure to be delighted by the presentations from our children and their teachers. Our religious education teachers and youth group advisors will be honored for their service. Karen Lapidus, Director of Religious Education will offer the homily.
