The Beloved (and Broken) Community

We often sing the virtues of community – of what Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned as “The Beloved Community” yet the reality of our community reflects the reality of ourselves: with brokenness as well as wholeness. How do we co-create Beloved Community even when it, and we, are already broken? Our pulpit guest has been a hospice chaplain in Corvallis and Eugene for the past six years, following a dozen years serving UU congregations.
