Reverend Aaron’s October 24 Sermon, “Building a Prophetic Beloved Community” discussed the idea of adopting the 8th Principle in our congregation.
Paula Cole Jones, Director of Social and Racial Justice, Central East Regional Group, realized the need for the 8th Principle and worked with Bruce Pollack-Johnson to developed the wording for 8th Principle. You can read The 8th Principle, learn about the background of the 8th Principle and why now is the time for it on their website, The 8th Principle.
You may also be interested in watching a video from a minister of a Boise congregation who adopted the 8th Principle and who talks about what they learned through the process. If you find yourself uncomfortable with the use of the term “white supremacy” in the video, we suggest you read this article,”4 Myths About White Supremacy.“
