Inside: The dream of white innocence; the rising costs of entering the ministry; and a new musical by a young UU that gives a happily-ever-after ending to its queer characters.
Our Winter 2016 issue began arriving in subscribers’ mailboxes last week, but you don’t have to be a subscriber—or even wait for your print copy to arrive—to start reading its provocative and engaging stories. Browse the Table of Contents.
UU World (Winter 2016)
The cover story, “The Dream of White Innocence,” is adapted from the Rev. William G. Sinkford’s sermon at this summer’s General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association. You can watch him deliver it in the video at the bottom of the article. I discuss the unsettling paintings by Brittney Leeanne Williams that accompany his essay and that appear in the print magazine’s Table of Contents in my column, “The Act of Not Seeing.”
Other notable articles include “When Charity Disrupts Justice,” by UU economic justice activist Chuck Collins; “The Rising Costs of Entering the Ministry” by Joshua Eaton; and Doug Muder’s review of three books about the white working-class experience in America.
And don’t miss Air Nonken’s profile of young musical writer Jaime Jarrett, who wrote a “happily-ever-after” for queer characters; the Rev. Jaco ten Hove’s personal essay about caring for his dying father; or Kris Willcox’s look back at the Unitarian printmaker Nathaniel Currier (of Currier & Ives fame).
Please share our stories and let us know what you think. We’re on Facebook and Twitter. We no longer set aside pages in the print magazine for letters to the editor (because, frankly, we had stopped receiving many substantive letters), we do love hearing from readers. You may leave a comment on any article from the Winter issue here on our website, or email your letter to the editor at world [at] uua [dot] org.
