A Hamster Named Yard

Join us for a controversial discussion about disability, spiritual practices and the search for social justice among (and beyond) Unitarian Universalism. How do we respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person while referring to him/her as“differently-abled”, “special”, “handicapable”? Do we inadvertently perpetuate the stigma of “otherness”?

The Rev. Jennifer Pader, M.Div., STM, LMSW became a disability rights advocate while at seminary, and her work there was written about in The New York Times and reprinted in UU World magazine. She has taught Theology of Disability at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and was among the first ministers to preach and write about this topic. This is Jennifer’s second year as a guest minister at MMUUF.

**Reminder: The Holiday Potluck will be directly after this service, please bring a dish (starter or entree or dessert) to share!

Please remember that each Sunday we ask Fellowship Members to bring a donation for the local Jericho Food shelf. Our Fellowship has been asked to provide canned fruit when possible. Our contributions are critical to their important work!
