Welcome to a new ministry initiative of All Souls. We understand that in community, there’s a deep need to know one another and to be known. This is all the more important in such a large community as All Souls, and in a city like New York, where our busy lives may mean we spend less time together. To continue our work of building connections, we are launching our Question of the Month. Each month, Galen or Audette will pose a question, often with one or two follow up queries. The following month, we’ll share snapshots of your responses on our Question of the Month page on our website.
February is Black History Month. Over the past few years, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and its member congregations have engaged in new efforts to dismantle institutional racism, and to embrace an ethic of deep multicultural welcome. New organizations, such as Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) and older ones, such as DRUUMM have emerged to center the leadership and concerns of Black UUs and UUs of color in our broader UU movement. There is also the work of our Side With Love campaigns. If you are unfamiliar with them, a great way to honor Black History Month is to get to know their work:
