Living Our Faith Out Loud
April 2, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am
On this Palm Sunday we are invited to wonder together about the meaning of resistance to empire in these times. How are we called, as Unitarian Universalists, to unapologetically model our values in this country where each passing day brings more attempts to limit the full humanity of members of our beloved community? Join Sofía Betancourt, candidate for President of our UUA, to discuss the power of community engagement as we look toward the next six years in our living tradition.
Rev. Dr. Sofia Betancourt is the current candidate for president of the Unitarian Universalist Association. She is a minister, educator, scholar, vocalist, poet, fiber artist, and change-maker. She has served as a religious educator, a parish minister, a seminary professor, and interim co-president of the UUA, and in countless volunteer roles within the Association. As the child of immigrants from Panamá and Chile, and grandchild of a seventh-generation Unitarian, she knows the strength that comes from building lasting community at the meeting point of difference. Her work in the world and her practice of Unitarian Universalism are informed by the belief that creating mutual, accountable relationships allows us to live our values more fully every day. She currently lives in the Washington, D.C., area.
