UUCSV TO STUDY – ESCALATING INEQUALITY
Delegates at the 2014 General Assembly (GA) in Providence, RI, selected “Escalating Inequality” to be the 2014-2018 Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA.)
The CSAI is an invitation for congregations to take a topic of concern and engage it, reflect on it, learn about it, respond to it, comment on it, take action – each in their own way. A CSAI is NOT a statement –it is a question.
UUCSV will begin to engage on the issue with anopen planning meeting on Wednesday, January 7, 7:30 p.m. in the church.
The Social Action and Justice Committee (S&J) is convening the meeting, but it is important that all elements of the church should be involved, including Adult Education, Lifespan Faith Development, the Worship Committee and any other interested group. Everybody in UUCSV is invited to this initial planning session.
The UUA has prepared a thorough study guide with many options for ways to approach the project, and all suggestions are welcome. Given that escalating inequality includes not just the economic aspect but also classism, racism, fair wages and a number of other problems, there’s plenty to engage our interest and concern.
Please plan to meet with us on January 7. It will be a lively discussion.
