In the 2019-20 church year, the Davies Unitarian Universalist Congregation will explore the proposed 8th Principle already embraced by many congregations in their work toward dismantling systems of White Supremacy and bringing an end to racism and oppression.

The 8th Principle states: “We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

The year’s discernment work will include ADORE conversations, reading and discussion of works such as “White Fragility” by Robin D’Angelo, regular Listening Circles, and the exploration of core concepts during sermons and services.
