This Sunday, the UUCLC celebrates Kwanzaa. This ritual arrives by way of African American culture. While many churches practice Kwanzaa, it is not a religious event per se. Instead, it focuses on the seven Kwanzaa principles. Maulana Karenga created the celebration in 1966.
We all know the year 2020 brought much to bear on the lives of African American people. We’ll close out 2020 by reflecting on the meaning of Kwanzaa and how the principles can empower our lives. Together, we will explore the Kwanzaa principle called Kujichagulia (self-determination). Each of us has the power for a self-determined life.
The Rev. Nell Newton, Minister of the Amarillo Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, joins us as the co-celebrant for this special service. We invite you to join us for the final worship service of this eventful year.
