UUA Webinar
A Strange Power to Spring in Us: Building Resiliency & Spiritual Grounding for Justice Makers
Tuesday, June 12, 7:45-9:00 PM, Purple Room
“I’m just too burned out to lead this project anymore.” “You’re making me feel ashamed for being privileged.” “I come to church to find comfort; all this social justice stuff is too political!” Many of us have heard some variation of these themes in our UU congregations. How can we meet people where they are, while also helping people find spiritual sustenance and energy in the work of social justice? In this webinar, we will talk about ministering to resistance, burnout, shame, and apathy with the goal of growing and sustaining resilient leaders who are in it for the long haul.
