Sermons from First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington Massachusetts

Apr 12, 2021

Is there anything more cringe-worthy than when people say, with disdain in their voices, “Why are they playing the race card again?”
We must realize that the “cards” are a very real fact of our everyday lives and the lives of our children & grandchildren; actual events that have and continue to affect and wound us. Until then it will continue to be us vs. them, and we all pay a price. Why do UUs who are on the right side of race issues need to hear this? To gather the cards to share with people on the wrong side of the issue.
