“The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House”
Audre Lorde cautioned that the master’s tools would never dismantle the master’s house. Yet it is clear that some demolition is in order. What tools can we use that will open paths of love and justice?
Join us for this special Sunday when we recognize and honor our church members who are seminarians studying to become Unitarian Universalist ministers. Their roles are changing as they prepare to become leaders in our faith, opening more paths to love and justice.
The Rev. Dr. William G. Sinkford currently serves as Senior Minister of First Unitarian Church of Portland, Oregon. Bill is probably best known for his service as President of the Unitarian Universalist Association (2001-2009). His tenure was marked by strong public witness for social justice and support for marginalized communities. Bill earned his B.A. from Harvard in 1968 and also holds honorary doctorates from Tufts University and Meadville/Lombard Theological School. Bill was the first African American to lead any traditionally white denomination, and was named one of the ten most influential Black religious leaders in the United States in both 2005 and 2006. He and his wife Maria have four adult children and one grandchild.
First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee is a progressive church for spiritual community, social justice, and intellectual freedom. Visit us for Sunday services, forums, religious education for children & youth, and other programs and social activities. Visitors to First Church are always welcome! Join us for coffee and conversation in the Common Room following the service.
