The Power of Moral Imagination

Responding effectively to injustice and suffering means finding ways to say that the status quo isn’t good enough and affirming that our actions matter, even though they are always imperfect and partial. This service will be focused on moral imagination as the courageous practice of asserting that another world is possible, and that we can help bring it into being, even during very challenging and discouraging times. This moral imagination is one of the powerful and unique contributions of our Unitarian Universalist movement, historically and in the present day. We’ll draw on the work of philosopher Hannah Arendt, as well as the current sanctuary movements and the campaign to end white supremacy, as concrete examples of moral imagination at work.
