Each year, a special committee of the Unitarian Universalist Association selects a book to recommend to all UU’s to read together. The 2018-19 Common Read is “Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment”, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018). On Sunday, April 7, after the Sunday service, Rev. Kristen and Ellen Hansen-Ellis will lead a discussion of this book, and we are hoping that you will join us.
Justice on Earth explores the ways in which racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are intertwined. People and communities on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins. The book asks us to recognize that our faith calls us to work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life. It invites us to look at our current challenges through a variety of different perspectives, offers tools to equip us for sustained engagement, and proposes multiple pathways for follow-up action.
One copy of Justice on Earth is available for loan from the table in SWUU’s upstairs lobby; a copy may be purchased at inSpirit: UU Book and Gift Shop for $18. Please plan to read the book in March, and join us on April 7 after the service to delve into the links between various forms of injustice. The discussion will begin at 12:00; please bring a bag lunch if desired.
