Parable of the Talents: On Christianity and Capitalism

,

As a religious liberal, we like to tell stories from the bible that support our values of love, equality, and generosity. But what about stories that make us uncomfortable? As Unitarian Universalists, we are inheritors of the Judaeo-Christian bible and all of its stories which, for better or worse, continue to hold power in the modern world. When we distance ourselves from these stories do we rob ourselves of the power to make real change in systems of oppression? Join us as we explore this topic through one of the lesser known parables. Worship leader Katrinca Ford, worship associate Alanna Kelly and musician Denise Blasé will be joined in the pulpit by a local hotel worker who will provide personal testimony on issue facing the working poor today.
