We Go Entwined
with Rev. Stephen Shick
In our 7th principle we “affirm and promote the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Yet, we celebrate our individuality, some say we worship it. “Follow your passions,” we say. Be the person of this cause, this interest. While there is wisdom in knowing your heart’s song and focusing your work, there is also a great danger that the larger picture of our interdependence will vanish. In worship on July 15 we will explore together the “intersectionality” of issues of race, class and the environment to gain new perspectives on how to do faith-based work for the common good.
Rev. Stephen Shick is Minister Emeritus of the Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson. He has served our faith nationally as the founding Director of the UU Peace Network and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s U.S. Programs Department. As a parish minister he has served our congregations in Haverhill, MA, and Portland, ME. He is author of two Skinner House books, Be the Change and Consider the Lilies. Currently, through his Speaking by Heart program he teaches the art of speaking without notes and manuscript to religious leaders and social justice activists.
