Annual Shinn Service: As the World Burns

Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen guest preaching

Each day we encounter many reasons to give up, data that makes it hard to hope, and the pressures of our own personal lives. How do we answer the call of love and justice while the world burns? Poet Joy Harjo writes, “Perhaps the world will end at the kitchen table, while we are laughing and crying, eating of the last sweet bite.” How do we keep on the path to justice while savoring all of the sweetness?

About the Shinn Service
Each year, the Social Justice Committee organizes a service in honor of Barbara Shinn, who was a longtime member of our congregation and a strong advocate for social justice. A part of the Shinn service tradition is to have a guest give a sermon on a topic related to social justice.

About Our Guest Preacher
This year we welcome Elizabeth Nguyen to our pulpit. Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen is a Midwesterner at heart, lives in Boston, and is learning all the time about liberation, solidarity, courage, and cowardice. She is a Unitarian Universalist minister and the Immigration Bond Coordinator with the National Bail Fund Network and previously did faith-based justice work and youth organizing. She is passionate about progressive organizing in the Vietnamese American community, building power across prison walls and feeding people.
