Living Our Mission: Standing on the Side of Love
At UUCA we are continuing to live out our mission as a people with a passion for social and economic justice who work together for human rights and a sustainable environment. On May 6th, many teens from Grady High School in Atlanta and community activists came together at Piedmont Park to be a counter-witness to the hate-filled messages of Westboro Baptist Church. Of course, UUCA joined in with our Standing on the Side of Love signs! UUCA participation was sponsored by Interweave and also represented by Intern Ministers Julie Lepp and Terry Davis. It was a great day to see the power of all ages and types of people coming together in spite of hate. It was a testament to the power of people gathered in the name of love. Even the police doing crowd control couldn’t help smiling a little.
