Creating the Spirity of Expectancy


In her 2016 Ware Lecture, Brittney Packnett asked the Unitarian Universalists at General Assembly, “Do you know what your neighbors in your faith community expect of you? She challenged all of us that day to use everything you got to meet and exceed those expectations in exchange for justice. This is our work she says, and it pay huge dividends. But it is not easy to always meet expectations on behalf of something bigger than you. This service will tap into the wisdom of the late Toni Morrison, who expected her characters and her readers to learn something vital and morally insightful, saying, “when you encounter your humanity your humanity makes you confront inhumanity.” Together, let us create the spirit of expectancy and realize its power.
