Few, if any, in our liberal faith would label themselves "white supremacists," yet the evidence is clear that in many ways we still maintain a white supremacist culture. We talk "Black Lives Matter" and reject the idea that white supremacy should play any part in our churches and institutions, but our actions and the biases we bring to decision-making sometimes reflect something else. We are still walking "the stony road" to full racial equality. The obstacles to a truly equal and non-racist church and society are much less blatant, but still very much present. This morning we, along with over 600 UU congregations across the country, will address the hidden influences of the white supremacy legacy and what we can do, even right here at FPC, to move beyond it. At the conclusion of the formal worship there will be an opportunity to share your thoughts with others in small facilitated groups. The Rev. Tom Rosiello will be preaching and members of our Racial Justice Task Force will participate in the morning's program. Worship will include words of African Americans and inspiring music from the African American tradition.
