An Eighth Principle?
Kathy will introduce an idea that has some support within the UU community: adding an 8th Principle to the seven faith principles that are currently the backbone of our religion. Attracting sentiment both for and against, the main issue is adopting a statement about dismantling racism and oppression, and working to build a diverse multicultural community, both within our UU denomination and in our society as a whole. But how to do this, the wording, the practice, the acceptance... this is the difficult part. Let's talk about it and look at this proposal from many angles.
