March 26: “Belovedness as an Antidote to Fear”

Presented by: Rev. Sara LaWall (Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship)

In this time of heightened fear, disruption and dismantling of our deeply held values, where can we turn to inner strength and spiritual fortification? Belovedness offers us a spiritual grounding to which we can anchor ourselves as we seek new and creative ways to respond to the call of our tradition. Hear stories from our UU presence in the Civil Rights Movement as a reminder that showing up for justice and human dignity is deeply rooted in our tradition.
