Humanist Service – “ORDINARY PROPHETS”

 

The sources of our Unitarian Universalist living tradition inform us that we draw wisdom from the “words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.” This focus on the will of people working together to make change in the world is as uplifting as it is humbling. All are welcome to this interactive Sunday service on the skills we need to be ordinary people sharing our gifts of imagining a world transformed by our care for one another, our communities, and the environment.

Our speaker today, Gregory C. Carrow-Boyd, is a religious educator and seminarian who studies at Claremont School of Theology. He serves on the Board of Trustees of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Originally from Central Pennsylvania, Greg enjoys how his spirit is growing here on the West Coast. Greg also works as the Coordinator for More Than Sex-Ed, a Greater LA-based sexuality education collective that brings the UUA and United Church of Christ comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, Our Whole Lives, to schools, home school groups and the greater community.

 

You may be asking “What is a Humanist Forum Sunday Morning Service?”

Our Humanist Forum is designed to welcome the secular humanist, activist, and socially concerned members of our community. In a world of heartbreak, dehumanization, and need for information, our community calls us to our better selves. During these services we will hear from community leaders with an objective to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion for the world around us. It will be a time to deepen our faith through action.
