Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit

January 24, 2021

First Parish in Needham UU

- Sermon begins at 55:06.


On inauguration week Sunday of 2021, I was in dialogue with a cherished book by Quaker educator and activist Parker Palmer, Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit. We paused together to reflect on the relationship of our UU faith to our political lives, historically and today. We imagined together what it would take to heal the heart of our democracy and live out our 5th principle boldly and intentionally.
