Event Description

UUA Common Read: The Third Reconstruction

Sunday, February 26, following services, Sanctuary

Join Mary Kirk and the SJMT for a facilitated discussion of Rev. William J. Barber's "The Third Reconstruction" - the UUA's 2016 Common Read.  Many of us have been stunned by the forces of hate and violence unleashed by the recent presidential election. We ask ourselves “What response can we make to threats and lies used to win and consolidate power? What response can we make to the multi-pronged attacks on our ideals of justice and equality? Answers to these difficult questions may be found in The Third Reconstruction, by the Reverend Dr. William J. Barber, II, founder of the “Moral Monday’s” movement. “Moral Monday’s” refers to a series of mass protests held at North Carolina’s state capitol. Following these well publicized and successful protests, “Moral Monday’s” sparked similar movements in other states. In his book, Rev. Barber offers not just a call for justice but practical—step by step—strategies on how to “mobilize in the streets, at the polls, and in the courtroom.” By reading and discussing this powerful book, we can learn how our faith can guide us in our response to attacks on our ideals of justice and equality.
