Spiritual Odyssey with Michelle Bentley
A DRUUMM member-only event
Thursday, September 30th, 2021
8:00 PM Eastern / 5:00 PM Pacific
DRUUMM members are invited to a unique and sacred gathering with the Reverend Doctor Michelle Bentley who will be sharing her spiritual odyssey. We believe in the power of sharing, passing down wisdom, and connecting our generations. Join us for an intimate, BIPOC-only evening as we form a circle to hold and witness the stories of one of our elders. This program uplifts our value of hisotyr:
Consciousness of History: By keeping the written and oral histories of People of Color within UUism we are making sure that history can be accessible and helpful to new and old members. Recognizing our place in the larger stream of history and our role as history makers, we develop individual and collective investment in our storytelling. We thank and honor our elders and ancestors, passing on our legacy and lessons to future generations. – DRUUMM Values
We are a community rich with stories of awe and stories of struggle. Experiences that have shaped and sharpened our beliefs and how we live in the world. In building on our values, including our value of being conscious of history, we are offering a new series of member events featuring an elder in our community who has graciously agreed to share their journey of faith as a Black, Indigenous and/or Person of Color in Unitarian Universalism.
