Defying The Nazis: The Sharp’s War

A new documentary by Ken Burns airing September 20th on PBS

thesharps

 “A story of historic courage told this fall.  Martha and Waitstill Sharp, two young Unitarians, stood up against injustice to defy the Nazis and rescue dissidents, Jews and other refugees during World War ll.  Their bravery and sacrifices have inspired a new Ken Burns film, Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War,  scheduled for broadcast on PBS on September 20th at 9pm.”  Inspired by the Sharps, Catherine’s sermon on September 25th, Defying Hatred and Fear will discuss modern day parallels that the Sharps’ fought against.  How are we called as Unitarian Universalists to defy hate and discrimination today?

Nurturing Loving Hearts…

Curious Minds & Joyful Spirits!
