Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Intern Minister.
April feels like a long time ago, now. But April it was, when Unitarian Universalists from around North America gathered in New York City for the annual Spring Seminar at the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO). The focus of this year's seminar was indigenous rights. Conversations around this topic dovetail well with our theme of Awakening this month, given that there appears to be a gradual, if delayed, national awakening to the ongoing issues of justice for indigenous people in Canada. More and more people are asking what it means for us to live in this land, and on this land, and how we can move forward in right relationship with the land's First People's. This Sunday I will share about how my own and my family's history intersects with the colonization of Canada, and we will reflect together on how we fit into this unfolding story. There will also be a special collection taken in support of the UU-UNO. See you there!
Yours on the journey,
