The UCC and Justice

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice! Rainbow dreamstimefree_120296

I’m still basking in the glow of the many blessed decisions from the supreme court last week: from upholding health reform, marriage equality rights, fair housing, & although not the supreme court, a long-overdue recognition that fighting for slavery was wrong. These decisions uphold the inherent worth & dignity of all people, created in the image & likeness of God, and are so consistent with who we are as a faith community and as a denomination.

I am so happy to be part of this small, evolving, prophetic denomination – the UCC: the 1st mainline religious group to affirm equal marriage rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation, the 1st to ordain openly gay minister, the 1st to ordain an African American and a woman.

God IS still speaking!  rainbowcomma
