Piedmont UU Church — August 2, 2020
Jami Yandle, guest speaker
Making PRIDE Prophetic – Join us on on August 2nd as we welcome Jami Yandle to our virtual pulpit. Pride is not happening in person this year, but it is just important to celebrate visibility. Changing the Second Source from “to honor words and deeds of prophetic women and men” to “prophetic people” honors gender diversity and people of all ages within Unitarian Universalism. Youth attending General Assembly spoke in favor of the change because it represented them. This exemplifies the importance of what happens when people feel seen and represented.
Jami Yandle (pronouns they, them) is a UU minister in preliminary fellowship and a Board-Certified Hospice Chaplain serving the upstate area of South Carolina. Jami has 10 years of experience in ministry and community organizing including but not limited to Protest Chaplaincy with Occupy Wall Street, Marriage Equality, Institutional Change, and Racial Justice. They initiated and facilitated the revision of the Unitarian Universalist Second Source to honor words and deeds of “prophetic people” rather than “prophetic women and men.” Most recently, Jami helped create the UUMA Community Ministers Chapter and accepted a position on the Board for Forward Together: The UU Justice Ministry of North Carolina.
Your generosity makes it possible for us to offer weekly services of message and music, providing a beacon of hope to our communities.
