Every Sunday we end worship with a call to “rock, roll, and move towards that spirit of Beloved Community on the horizon.” What do we mean by this? Beloved Community is an idea coined by Dr. Martin Luther King. Our friends at Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) define it as follows:
“Beloved Community happens when people of diverse racial, ethnic, educational, class, gender, abilities, sexual orientation backgrounds/identities come together in an interdependent relationship of love, mutual respect, and care that seeks to realize justice within the community and in the broader world.”
It is a home of peace; a positive peace that is the presence of justice. To rock, roll, and move towards such a calling, we must muster a generous heart, connect with fellow travelers, and struggle against the wicked troubles of our times. All of us, and all that we are, are called to love’s table. Join us this Sunday as we seek to deepen our commitment to care and expand our circles of concern.
