“Women & Religion in the UUA”

Livestreamed at 10:30 am (prelude begins at 10:25)

In the 1960s and 1970s UU women became increasingly upset by the dominant use of non-inclusive language including references to the dignity of men, ideals of brotherhood, love to man, and cooperation with men of good will. Following the UUA’s 1977 Women & Religion Resolution, work was done to create awareness and dismantle sexist language in our faith, laying the groundwork for further use of inclusive, non-binary language today.  Homily by Alice Carnes.  Music by Kiki Barley, guest musician.  Louise Jencik, liturgist.
