Hard Times Require Furious Dancing: Remembering Collective Joy

Barbara Ehrenreich, author, asks a provocative question for Unitarian Universalists: “Why do we resist the experience of collective joy?”  What would it take for you to surrender to the ecstasy of collective effervescence? As we search for ways to feel hope as the days darken, perhaps fully experiencing joy in community might help us to  “make a way where there is no way.”

For those that like to read ahead, Rev. Niebanck recommends “Dancing in the Streets” by Barbara Ehrenreich for a history of ecstatic community as a political force for change.
