Our own Rev. Suzelle Lynch sat down with Andrea Williams on her show, Our Issues Milwaukee, to discuss the local Unitarian Universalist support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Rev. Lynch was joined by Rev. Amy Shaw of nearby Lake Country Unitarian Universalist Church.
A story from Rev. Suzelle Lynch:
When I was a kid, the only thing that made me madder than being told to “count my blessings” was when my mom used to say, “Every cloud has a silver lining, honey.”
She was right, of course.
But when you’re a child, and your best friend suddenly decides she’s best friends with someone else, well, it’s hard to see the silver lining through the rainstorm of tears!
This month’s Soul Matters theme, “We are a People of Blessing”, has me thinking about those silver linings, though. It has me thinking about blessings in disguise.

This condition points to a deep pervasive defeat in the process of human thought. Today, Alice Foley will speak on resolving conflict through mediation.Read more...
