Justice: Faith in Action
Ours is a faith that seeks and does justice. That work is as, the Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker says, a “striving for what is not yet but could be.”
A church doing justice work differs from the way other organizations or institutions do justice work in its grounding, framing, and motivation. In what guides us as we do the work. In what we return to when threatened by discouragement or violence. If we want to go the distance then we must have a firm footing to live out of not just morally or intellectually or ethically but spiritually.
Below are some of the ways you can join others at UUCE in living our values and beliefs out loud in public.
September Justice Action: Huerto de la Familia
September’s Justice Action is with Huerto de la Familia, at the Churchill Community Garden on Saturday, September 30, 9:00am-noon.
Parking: Kennedy Middle School (2200 Bailey Hill Rd. Eugene, OR 97405)
Walk downhill past the chain-link fence towards the garden. There’s a port-o-potty on site, and a covered area with tables to rest.
Prefer to carpool? Meet at UUCE at 8:45am.
Please bring snacks, a water bottle, and garden-ready attire. If you have your own gloves or knee pads, we encourage you to bring them, though they also have some available. They will provide coffee and tea.
This event is accessible to most elders and all children, but the pathways are not paved. If someone comes with a cane or a walker they can park down below at the garden and should be fine with the terrain of the garden; if they come in a mobility scooter or a wheelchair, same for the parking,
You will be navigating grassy pathways, so if you have mobility concerns, please let us know so that we can make sure we have the adequate accommodations and appropriate projects ready for everyone.
