This week at uuworld.org: Immigration.
Enrique Gómez reflects on the Mexican-U.S. border, which his family crossed many times in his childhood — just as hummingbirds and many other creatures have routinely migrated north and south from time immemorial. (You can discuss the essay with Enrique at his blog.) Unitarian Universalist Navy chaplain Cynthia Kane offers a noncombatant's thanks for the men and women of the U.S. military. And, from UU World's Reflections section, Tom Stites introduces UU sculptor Don Cheek's work, "In Praise of Lesser Gods."
In the news, as I mentioned here on Thursday, Harvard Divinity School has announced a new professorship in Unitarian Universalist studies. Don Skinner reports on UU congregational efforts near the U.S.-Mexican border encourage compassionate responses to undocumented immigrants. Jane Greer writes about a group of UU ministers who traveled to Washington, D.C., last week to oppose a constitutional amendment barring same-sex marriage. And Sonja Cohen (with a little assist from me) tracks other Unitarian Universalists in the media for the news blog.
