Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, will discuss “The Promise and the Practice” at 10:30 a.m., 882 Sunset Ave., Prescott.
The congregation will take a fearless look at how the Unitarian Universalist faith has battled, and unwarily perpetrated, racism. The deaths of Unitarian Universalists, Rev. James Reeb and Viola Liuzzo during the fight for civil rights in Selma in 1965 recall the dedication of UUs to racial equality. The promise of racial equity within the denomination has been difficult to fully achieve.

The first trip began in Nepal traveling with a friend with plans to continue on to India. The friend decided to skip India and Marion continued on. This first trip was in 1998 and she has lost track of the number of her trips since them. Over the years she has seen many changes in India. Many people ask why she keeps returning and the answer is friends! Over the years she has developed deep and lasting relationships with three families.
