The Change We Need to Be: Challenges for Unitarian Universalists
By Phyllis Culp
Andrea Abbott discusses “The Change We Need to Be: Challenges for Unitarian-Universalists” at this week’s UU Fellowship Service. Drawing on the work of Bill McKibben, Naomi Klein, and Paul Hawken, Abbott will examine the role Unitarian Universalists are well-placed to play in the challenges of our times, such as climate change, the increasing gap in wealth, and the militarization of law enforcement. Our history of social justice calls us to confront these issues — but in what fashion will we respond?

Andrea Abbott is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist. She is a seminary student, discovering what she wanted to be when she grew up after careers in human service and librarianship. She retired two years ago from Auburn Correctional Facility, a men’s maximum security prison, after 20 years as the librarian. She is currently the student minister at the First Universalist Society of Central Square, a small community north of Syracuse that takes winter seriously. In addition to looking forward to meeting the Unitarian Universalists of San Miguel de Allende, she is also happily anticipating a different weather zone.
The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at La Posada de la Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15 and welcomes everyone. Visitors are invited to attend the service and then join us for hospitality and discussion afterwards. Wheelchair accessible. For additional information, visit www.uufsma.org.
