‘Inequality: A Social Justice Issue’ is UU topic

Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, March 3, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Inequality: A Social Justice Issue,” presented by Ron Garst, of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Durango.

Garst points out that “Income inequality has been with us forever. Lately, however, it has become radically more unequal.

“We will first describe the extent of income inequality, then explore some of the geographic, economic, social, health, political and ethical aspects of inequality.”

Garst first became interested in this issue in 1973 when he was invited to present at a national academic conference. He earned his Ph.D. in 1972, and spent a total of 42 years in teaching and research. He has been a UU member since 1972 and a member of the Durango UU Fellowship since 2006.

For the months of March and April, the children will be exploring the Seventh Unitarian Principle, honoring the Earth: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part.”  Earth Day is April 22.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, and child care will be provided. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza.  Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.
