CULTURAL (MIS)APPROPRIATION OR WHY I DON’T CELEBRATE CINCO DE MAYO – Rev. Paul Dodenhoff

May 6 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Share this

Please join us for today’s service at 10:30 a.m. led by Rev. Paul Dodenhoff. As a spiritually liberal community, we draw from many sources, including “wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.” However, over the past few years there is an increasing awareness within many spiritual traditions of how that “drawing from” often crosses the line into cultural (mis)appropriation. Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley writes “Our first task in approaching another people, another culture is to take off our shoes, for the place we are approaching is holy.” Join us today as we consider this increasingly important topic.

Bring a friend and stay for coffee and light refreshments. We look forward to seeing you!
