10:30 – 11:30 KUUF Sanctuary, Rev. Carol McKinley:
When was the last time you had a satisfying, enriching conversation about diversity? Americans are becoming more entrenched in polarized positions around race, gender, and politics, and it seems increasingly difficult to respectfully communicate about those issues that divide us. As people of faith who honor Unitarian Universalism’s first principle to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, how might we engage in respectful conversations with everyone, including those with whom we disagree?
