How do we take the Justice General Assembly home? That was the focus of Sunday afternoon’s plenary report from UUA Executive Vice President Kay Montgomery and Vice President for Ministries and Congregational Support the Rev. Harlan Limpert.
“The act of coming here has been a declaration that living our Unitarian Universalist faith is inherently about justice-making and justice-building,” said Limpert. “We all stand on the side of love, we all stand for justice, but we manifest that in the world in our own ways.”
Montgomery and Limpert suggested some practical ways that GA attendees can bring Justice General Assembly and immigration justice to their congregations and communities. Among them were:
“These past few days haven’t been the beginning, nor will they be the end of our mission for justice,” Montgomery concluded. “This is, however, a defining moment. For whenever people unite in common spirit, with faith in something better, faith in love, faith in community, faith in compassion, faith in solidarity–whenever we lift up our voices in unison, something beautiful happens almost inevitably–profound and expansive love and power to transform the world.”
