Join Us June 25, 10 a.m. Rockford
We rarely think of ourselves as intolerant bigots, but our subconscious actions and responses can hurt people we don't even know. "And I should know!" says Stanley Campbell, director of Rockford Urban Ministries, which the UUs support, will share some thoughts on how not to offend those we might disagree with, nor even notice.
Mr. Campbell has worked for 32 years as "the only paid peace activist" in Rockford and says, “As a Vietnam veteran, I learned to hate war. I found healing by organizing.”
A long-time Rockford IL resident, he established the Rock Valley Food Pantry while a student at Rock Valley College in 1976. Since hired by RUM (as it is affectionately called) Mr. Campbell has started non-profit organizations including JustGoods fair trade, and the Rockford Work Camps volunteer program.
He speaks out against war, urban sprawl, and treating the poor poorly. He speaks in favor of immigrant rights, safer communities, and getting involved in issues.
Listen to previous sermons for free on iTunes or on Podbean.
For children and youth, we offer child care (for children under 4) and religious education programs (for children 4 and up) during the service.
