“Preaching Peace…in the Name of Humanity”

With destruction and casualties mounting in Ukraine, a ground war with grave global consequences, we’ll ask ourselves some questions this morning: why should we care about wars happening 1000s of miles from us, especially when we are compassion fatigued by COVID, domestic concerns, climate disasters, and local politics? What is our imperative to  activate our 6th principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all” and how can we do that? What is Non-Violent Resistance, the third way between the outdated concept of “Just War” and pacifism, and is it viable against Russian tanks? A “talkback” style discussion will take place after the sermon. Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, preaching, with Worship Associate Cheryl Austin, and piano pieces from Austin Shaw. Rev. Robin will preach her sermon, “Behind the 8 Ball: The 8th Principle Project and Infighting about Racism” on Sunday, April 3.
