“One Great Bundle of Humanity”

In 1866, addressing the Eleventh National Women’s Rights Convention in New York City, Francis Ellen Watkins Harper said, “We are all bound up together in one great bundle of humanity, and society cannot trample on the weakest and feeblest of its members without receiving the curse in its own soul.” Interdependence has always been a core commitment of our Unitarian Universalist faith. This Sunday, we will trace the thread of mutuality from Watkins Harper (a Unitarian ancestor and soon-to-be name on our window) to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into this present moment.
