Holding All That Is True

UUA Graphic - Tanya Webster

At our recent General Assembly of Congregations, we heard repeatedly the messages that our living tradition responds to change within and between us, and that we’re called to hold all the truths we each bring to our collective whole.  This morning, I’ll share the decisions that were made, and we’ll explore how we might weave our truths together with Love at the center.

  • The Share The Plate for Sunday June 30 and Sunday July 7th is the Sjogren’s Foundation. Sjogren’s (pronounced: show grins) is a serious autoimmune disease that affects the moisture producing glands in the body. For some people it affects the eyes and the mouth leading to irritation and possible vision and dental losses. For many it involves multiple organ systems. There currently are no FDA approved treatments for this disease which approximately 59,000 people in Wisconsin live with. Ninety percent of people with Sjogren’s are assigned female at birth. For 40 years the Sjogren’s Foundation has worked to support people with this disease and has pioneered research and provides educational programs for patients, caregivers and medical practitioners. Medical research has been a significant part of systematic white supremacy and this organization is working to rectify this. The Sjogren Foundation was nominated by Jeanette Clawson.
