Preaching Bek Wheeler “Contemplations on Equity” The First Principle — our commitment to honor the inherent worth and dignity of each person — has long served as anchor to our UU covenants.  Now with the revision of Article II, our First Principle emerges as core to the new Equity value of the UUA.  In this service, we will listen for Equity’s call.  Yes, surely, we must seek to right historic inequities.  But from the past into the present, what does Equity call on us to do now, in the moments of our every day?  Come, let us think, feel, question and explore together!
