Ware Lecture 2018

Since 1961, every year at the UUA General Assembly there is a special lecture called the Ware Lecture.

This year’s speaker is Brittany Packnett. 

“Brittany Packnett is a leader at the intersection of culture and justice. Cited by President Barack Obama as a leader who’s “voice is going to be making a difference for years to come,” Brittany is an unapologetic educator, organizer, writer, and speaker.

Brittany is an alum of Washington University in St. Louis, American University in Washington, and is a current Aspen Institute Education fellow. She is a proud Advisory Board Member of Rise To Run, an organization committed to recruiting grassroots, diverse, progressive women to run for office, and Erase The Hate, NBC/Universal’s Emmy-Winning initiative to rid the world of discrimination.

Ultimately, Brittany is a proud Black woman who believes that freedom is within our grasp—as long as we unleash love, and build our power, because “power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice.” (MLK)” For more information read this article. 

The lecture is tonight at 8:30pm and will be live streamed.

 

Namaste,

Lent 2018 – Day 7 – Power

What is power? Who has power? What does it mean to be in a place of power or position of power? These questions are coming up more often and for many, it has become part of a spiritual practice to answer them.

But there are many kinds of power.

Matthew Johnson wrote For Five Thousand Years or More about spiritual power.

There is natural power like the falls in the picture for this post.

So, how can we best use our power? How can we find our power?

Namaste,

Cricket
