November 7th: ‘Bringing our 5th Principle Home’

In this Ted Talk, Hajer Sharief, a young Libyan woman, explains how she learned the importance of democracy from her childhood family’s weekly meeting where they discussed issues regarding the running of their household. She applies these lessons to the importance of all people having voice in all aspects of their lives. This relates directly to our 5th principle: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” Joyce Throneburg is service leader.
