Labor Day

labor-sunday-header

Dear Ones,

This weekend, many of us will be attending family gatherings, getting children ready for school and finalizing neglected summer projects,
Aside from the occasional Labor Day parade, few Labor Day activities seem to have anything to do with honoring labor. This Sunday, we will take a moment to lift up the values of work and reflect on our spiritual teachings on labor.

I’d like to share with you, a great resource about the sometimes all too hidden history of Labor Day in this country:

In addition, I’d like to share with you, resources from organizations that we are partnering with locally, as part of our ongoing commitment to worker justice. I invite you to read on and join us in our ongoing efforts, to bring about affordable housing, affordable wages, and quality of life for all people.
