November 29: Centering Love, Cultivating Liberation
Service led by: Rev. Ranwa Hammamy
As we approach the end of a tumultuous and difficult year, filled with grief, challenges, and possibilities, we know that there is still so much at stake. How do we as Unitarian Universalists root ourselves in these demanding and traumatic times? Who do we want to be not only for this moment of history but for the future? What world does our faith call upon us to bring forward?
Rev. Ranwa Hammamy (they/she) serves as the Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California, which supports UUs around the state in their various justice ministries by providing advocacy, education, and witness opportunities to live out our UU values. Ranwa has previously served as President of DRUUMM (Diverse & Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries), a national organization for UU People of Color. A self-described “UU-Muslim,” Ranwa seeks to serve both living traditions in her ministry, encouraging others both to grow and learn from each other's gifts. When not working, Ranwa enjoys spending time baking absurd concoctions, singing for liberation, and relaxing with their spouse and 5 fur babies.
