Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home.
We learned from the life of Martin Luther King Jr. about working together for a fairer world inspired by our 2nd UU principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
Consider these thoughts by Martin Luther King Jr~
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
“No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
