You are are cordially invited to join us for our VIRTUAL Seminary for a Day on Saturday, January 29, at First Unitarian Portland. This year’s spiritual theme is entitled, Doing the Inner Work of Racial Justice.
Our keynote speaker is Rev. Abhi Janamanchi who serves as the Senior Minister of the Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church in Bethesda, Maryland. He describes himself as a Hindu-Unitarian Universalist and says that his Unitarian Universalism makes him a better Hindu.
If you are engaged in the work of racial justice and long for spiritual connection in this work, join us for this year’s virtual Seminary For A Day.
This is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how racism has shaped our UU faith and our congregations; how structural racism still operates today, often unnoticed; and what is involved in cultivating Beloved Community and working against racism and oppression in all of its forms.
We will practice mindfulness meditation, conversation, and experiential exercises that get to the heart of healing internalized racism and being anti-racist. We will seek to create brave space, engage in courageous conversations on what is healing and what is harming racial justice, and rest in restorative meditation and embodied practices.
