Repentance, Reparations, and Reconciliation

May 30, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

On the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre, during which hundreds of Black residents were killed and thousands more displaced by deputized white mobs…we know there is still so much work to be done. As rifts grow and racism is emboldened, how do we move ourselves not towards a complacent forgetfulness but instead to a committed & revolutionary love? How are we as people of faith called to listen, learn, and lead in the movement towards Beloved Community & collective liberation?

Pulpit Guest Rev. Ranwa Hammamy (they/she) serves as the Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California, which supports UUs around the state in their various justice ministries by providing advocacy, education, and witness opportunities to live out our UU values. Ranwa has previously served as President of DRUUMM (Diverse & Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries), a national organization for UU People of Color. A self-described “UU-Muslim,” Ranwa seeks to serve both living traditions in her ministry, encouraging others both to grow and learn from each other’s gifts. We look forward to them joining us in our virtual pulpit!
