Remembering the Future

We gather on the Sunday after our 125th Anniversary Gala.  We are joined by Rev. Dr. Petr Samojsky, minister of our partner church in Prague, which celebrates their 100th anniversary this year.  Remembering the past and considering the future, during this service Rev. Samojsky and Rev. Mol will each share a reflection on the continued relevance of Unitarian Universalism in our world.

Sunday, November 27

Domestication and the Interconnected Web of Existence

For thousands of years, humans have engaged in some form of domestication of the natural world.  From the clearing of land for crops to the selective breeding of animals to the modern industrialized slaughterhouses, humans have crafted nature to bend to their needs.  The climate crisis has forced our gaze to reconsider how we interact with the natural world, and it has made us reassess our spiritual and economic priorities.  How should we consider the human practice of taming the wild world in this context generally and what does this mean for our 7th principle?

This service will be led by Lily Carayannis (she/her).  Lily holds a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary and a Masters of Philosophy from SUNY Stony Brook. She is a member of the Board of Trustees for UU Faith Action NJ (UUFANJ), and she is the Deputy Chief of Special Operations at the NY City Civilian Complaint Review Board, a City Agency that investigates allegations of police misconduct. Lily’s ministry stands at the intersection of ecological justice, trans rights, and racial justice.  She believes that the crisis which faces America and the world can only be addressed by a steadfast dedication to the demands of justice, the power of love-in-action, and an investment in our spiritual lives.
