Many of the most powerful movements for social justice
have been those inspired and sustained by religious faith
and practice. Many of us yearn to bring our own justice
commitments into deeper conversation with our spiritual
lives, to find that same inspiration and sustenance. How
might we learn do this, individually and together, and
what difference can it make?
Rev. McTigue is the Director of the new UU College
of Social Justice, a dynamic new collaboration of the UUA
and UUSC. Prior to accepting this position in 2012, she
served as a parish minister for 25 years, first in North
Carolina and then New Haven, CT. The mission of the
College of Social is to inspire and sustain faith-based justice
work on issues of local, national and global importance.
Our group from West Shore will be traveling to
Haiti under the auspices of the College. The Outreach
Offering will be received for The College of Social Justice;
a brief service to Commission the team going to Haiti this
month will also be included in this Sunday’s service.
