“The Wolves of Racism: Judging the Other”
~ Rev. Henry Simoni-Wastila
January 11, 2015

What are some of the inner, personal sources of our racism? “We have met the enemy and he is us.” (Pogo, I believe.) Today we will explore some of the subjective realities that ground our thinking about the world. We will talk about the wolves of our fear-based anxieties and also the better angels of our nature. In healing our society, we must first heal ourselves.
