The Jubilee Sharing Circle

Learning Reflections from November 2017 Jubilee

  • “Many of us were opened to the effects of personal and institutional oppression which I believe will spread and create a more woke and welcoming congregation here at First UU.”

  • “I’m more aware of my white privilege and see where I’ve used this privilege in the past to escape from uncomfortable situations, rather than to stay on and fight for equitable treatment and conditions for people of color or people with less power and access to resources than me.”

  • “I gained more confidence to stand up and speak out when witnessing micro-aggressions.”

  • “Jubilee helped bring out the positive changes our congregation is taking action on, as well as reveal some aspects where we need to grow and develop.”

  • “This training is helping our congregation grow in knowledge and courage to continue learning and being examples of holders of the 8th Principle.”

  • “I take courage that I can and will change along with our congregation and community.  That we will support each other going forward is inspiring.”
