A UU Theology of Community Organizing by Matt Meyer

Matt Meyer

The attached PDF is a paper written by Matt Meyer sharing a “Unitarian Universalist Theology of Community Organizing.”   It begins:

Social justice work and Unitarian Universalism are intricately connected. Most of us believe that doing our part to make the world a better place is an important part of our spiritual journey. When it comes to the means of engagement however, there is less consensus. Our faith has much to say about the importance of charity and service and advocacy and education. I would offer though, that the tools and grounding values of community organizing reflect our Unitarian Universalist identity more than any other method of justice making. For a number of reasons, community organizing is a more holistic expression of Unitarian Universalism.  – Matt Meyer
