This is a sermon on environmental justice. For example, where is justice for the birds, the bees and the bears? Where is justice for the poor of the human race, needing water to sustain life just as much as the wealthier people? Where is justice for the elephant, prized for his tusks? What in the world are we becoming, and is there any hope for us and the earth?

Do only the powerful and politically connected have rights to make policy and grab resources on this good green earth? Are they the ones who always get to determine the welfare of other animals on the earth, and of indigenous people and ordinary folks? It would seem so.

Come early to join in fellowship and refreshments. For information, call 894-5776 or visit the website at uutryonnc.org where you can also find a copy of UU’s latest newsletter.
