Kwanzaa-Inspired Reflection: Honoring Our Ancestors, Holding the Future
In honor of Kwanzaa, an African American celebration of cultural reaffirmation that affirms family, community, self-development, and culture, we will reflect together on our ancestors and on our future generations. What beauty did they leave for us? What did we inherit? What is it we will pass on? We will consider these questions in our own lives and as a faith community.
Though Kwanzaa is celebrated December 26 – January 1, its seven principles are meant to be practiced year-round. Join us as we explore the past and the future in the context of the seven principles of Kwanzaa: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith). All are welcome. Facilitator: Ebony C. Peace.
