Unitarian Universalists: We must provide sanctuary and resist

developers-will-resistThe Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association recently wrote a letter to UU ministers that said:

First, we must provide sanctuary in the broadest and richest sense of the term. We begin with offering safe places for reflection and healing for our congregants and for those coming to seek spiritual community. But these times demand more. We must provide sanctuary to those most vulnerable. In particular, migrants (primarily from Mexico and Central America) may well face mass deportation. In addition, Muslims have been targeted.

Second, we must prepare to resist human rights violations in active ways. We must make it much harder to deport, register, discriminate and despoil.

And thanks, Cynical, for the link.

    That’s a tall order.

  2. UUs aren’t afraid of a challenge. :) We have been seeing record number of visitors and people wanting to get involved
