Welcome to Season 5 of Hope and Heresy!
In this season, Rev. Peggy and Rev. Sarah are sitting down with five pairs of Unitarian Universalist ministers, leaders, thinkers, and colleagues to ask one big question... what is the central task for humanity at this time in history?
Why this question? Well, it seems impossible to ignore that we find ourselves living in unprecedented times. A global pandemic, the rising tide of fascism in our country and beyond, a climate poised on the brink of disaster, a protracted global refugee crisis... the list goes on. For liberal religious individuals and their communities, it can be hard to find and keep hope, and even harder to know where we should start building the world we dream of. So, we wanted to talk to various UU luminaries to get their takes on what we can and should be doing, and how we can approach efforts to bring our values into fruition in the world around us.
If this sounds like a serious topic, well - it is. But, if you've listened to our podcast before, you know that we approach big questions with an attitude of curiosity, camaraderie, and finding the fun and laughter even in the toughest conversations. So, we hope you will join us on this journey!
