One of the most helpful conversations I’ve had as a Unitarian Universalist, in understanding my relationship to and my work against white supremacy, is the concept of centering. For change to take place we must center the voices of historically marginalized communities. The difficulty for me as a white person is that means I too have to come to grips with my place in the system because it is not about me or my heritage. Part of White Fragility is built around comfort. I am pointing this out, because when I began to work on my sermon for this Sunday, I noticed an inherent flaw. Instead of retooling the sermon, I chose to utilize the flaw. So, I hope you can join me this Sunday while I explore the flaw in the sermon.
