Stop trying to Save the World all By Yourself, Naomi Klein (Except from, “On Fire, The Burning Case for a Green New Deal”)

“We all hear the clock ticking loudly in the background. But that doesn’t mean that climate change trumps everything else. It means we need to create integrated solutions, ones that radically bring down emissions while tackling structural inequality and making life tangibly better for the majority.

The hard truth is that the answer to the question, “what can I, as an individual, do to stop climate change?” is: nothing. You can’t do anything. In fact, the very idea that we, as atomized individuals, even lots of atomized individuals, could play a significant part in stabilizing the planet’s climate systems or changing the global economy is objectively nuts. We can only meet this tremendous challenge together, as part of a massive and organized global movement.”

Please take this Climate Survey! Ellen Leicher from the Town’s Climate Action Working Group has asked to share this newly released survey about Harvard’s response to Climate Change that they would like Harvard residents to take. It takes about 10 minutes and will help the working group immensely to know the feelings of town residents as it moves forward with its work.

Here is the link to the survey:

Guest at Your Table

With our lives currently being held hostage by the corona virus, our GAYT effort will take a breather and start up again in the fall. In the meantime if you are able to send in a check to support the UUSC’s efforts around the globe it will be greatly appreciated. All donations will still be matched and donations of $125 or more will be quadrupled.

For more information please see our post "Guest At Your Table (GAYT) Takes a Breather"


Minister’s Corner

Who we are

We are a liberal religious community of people of all ages who hold diverse theological beliefs. We come not only from Harvard, but also from many surrounding towns. We gather together "in the spirit of love," to worship, to learn, and to care for one another. We come together both to be comforted and accepted for who we are, and to be challenged to transform and grow as moral and spiritual persons.

We believe in the value of personal experience and reason, and use both as we explore the wisdom of the world's religious traditions, seeking to find and make meaning for ourselves. We celebrate and honor the prophetic words and deeds of many of those who've come before us, which call us to serve not only one another, but also those outside of our community. We long for a world that is fair and just and filled with compassion, and we work to make it so.

We welcome you! We'd love to have you join us on our journey!

Minister’s Minute

I am looking forward to our virtual ingathering service on Sunday. I hope all of us of all ages can join in the celebration. I want to take a moment to lift up two additional family oriented worship services fast approaching. On September 27th the Music Committee is hosting UU singer songwriter Jim Scott who will bring our principles to life in song. Then on October 4th we will virtually bless our beloved animal companions. Please send me pictures of your beloved animals and their names, those of beloved memory, and favorite stuffed animals. And if your animals are able to join us during worship, that would be awesome. Please send pictures to revjillcowie@gmail.com
