Diversity and Inclusion

Sermon I in the Year-Long Series
“Unitarian Universalist and Culture’
In his famous 1951 book Christ and Culture, Protestant theologian H.Richard Niebuhr categorized all the ways he believed Christians must relate and respond to the culture they live in. Over the course of this sermon series I will similarly look at how we, as Unitarian Universalists, must relate and respond to our American culture. Sometimes (because of our values and beliefs) we find ourselves in a “oppositional” stance to culture, other times in a “compatible” stance to culture, and other times we creatively find that our religious values need to “actively engage” the values of our culture to improve life for all, In this first sermon in the series, I will explore American culture in regards to how well it embraces diversity and inclusion.
