On Tuesday, August 18, our congregation joined with the League of Women Voters, leaders from the South Converse neighborhood, and citizens from across our community to dedicate the Grimké mural in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Under strict public health protocols (wearing masks, socially distanced, outside) on one of the most beautiful August mornings I can recall, we gave thanks for the women who have led us through generations of struggle to greater rights and freedom for us all today.

The next day, I shared this photo from the event with a Zoom gathering of UU ministers in NC & SC:

Grimké Mural 'Determined'

They were stunned to silence. After a long, awe-filled pause, one exclaimed, “Holy S**t, that is amazing!”

Holy, indeed. Thank you for making serious s**t happen in this community and this world, every f***ing day.

With profound gratitude,
