Karyn Bergmann Marsh: “Where Do We Go From Here?”
This question begins the title of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s last book. Like many of Rev. King’s sermons and writings, this book is prophetic, but also very practical, offering steps and solutions. Yet, more than 50 years later, America is still struggling with the issues of racism, classism and sexism. The Black Lives Matter and #Metoo Movements seem to suggest that very little progress has occurred with regard to dismantling these oppressive systems. On top of all this, organized religion seems to be on the decline. Building on Rev. Clare Petersberger’s January 20 exploration of Rev. King’s theology, Lay Worship Associate and seminarian, Karyn Bergmann Marsh will offer the possibilities for Unitarian Universalism to be a religious voice on these issues in the 21st Century.
