Jesus in Whiteface-In-Person and Virtual Worship Rev. Chris Buice

In the 1920’s minstrel shows were common where a white performer would dress up in blackface. Today we recognize such a practice as deeply offensive.  Nevertheless, Western religion has done something similar to Jesus (and other biblical characters) by dressing them up in whiteface. This Sunday we will consider the white lies found in American churches today. We will also reflect on how the anti-racist implications of all 7 principles of Unitarian Universalism in addition to the more recently adopted 8th.
