Social Justice Religious Education — 9:30 AM Linda Dietiker-Yolo & Mary Lu Kennelly, “Green Sanctuary” Should NVUU become a Green Sanctuary? Are you willing to take actions to address climate change? How are you feeling about the UN warning about global climate change? Come discuss options for becoming involved in solutions. Main Service — 11:00 AM Guest minister Rev. Dr. Betty Stapleford, “Our Recovery From Racism” As Unitarian Universalists, we may like to think we are free of racism. After all, we say we believe in “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” and “justice equity and compassion in human relations.” But we may just need to explore the uncomfortable possibility that we are not as blameless as we had expected. And then we can open our eyes to look at what to do next. Hint – the answer is not paralyzing guilt. Rev. Dr. Betty Stapleford has been involved in social justice since her days of civil rights action in Atlanta, Georgia, in the 60’s and has been involved in numerous social justice causes in Ventura County since her arrival in 1998. She served as the minister of the Conejo Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Thousand Oaks for 12 years, the consulting Minister of the UU Church of the Verdugo Hills for 5, and is now the Affiliate Community Minister for Social Justice at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula. She is also the co-chair of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE VC) and the President of the UU Justice Ministry of California.
