Rev. Sean Neil-Barron talks with Dr. Dan McKanan, Ralph Waldo Emerson Unitarian Universalist Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School. They explore how the current trend of increasing economic inequality affects progressivism across religion and politics, how people rise up seeking to come to terms with America’s white supremacist and colonialist legacies, and the complex place that Unitarian Universalism occupies as a progressive religious tradition that is primarily made up of white folks. What is our role to play in movements for change?
What would happen if you released the idea that there's never enough time? What if you stopped trying to master time and instead found freedom in its limitations?
Rev. Gretchen draws on religious traditions, current events, and the Thanksgiving story to explore what it means to acknowledge the ghosts of our past - our past selves, our past beliefs, our past ways of being - and tend fully to the harm, while not letting go of the hope.
