divese hands9:30 a.m. – Forum: Election Connection, led by Patricia Ice

We will express our feelings about the presidential election process and outcomes. We will also discuss our plans for how we will move forward with the president elect to ensure we have a better educated and humane population that respects and embraces women, racial minorities, LGBTQ, religious minorities, and immigrants. This time is to serve as a cathartic moment together to name our fears and to grieve our (potential) losses as well as to share our hopes for the beloved community we are called to build together. All are welcome to attend!

After years of political campaigning for our next president of the United States, it is ended. The choice has been made. I remember I read a statement about 2 months ago that “the Sun would come up” the day after the election. I was surprised to hear President Obama share that very same statement in his remarks the day after the election. I’m going to walk us through our seven principles this Sunday to help all of us refresh our commitment as a greater movement in the world. We have a special role, and we are always ready to do our part.
