“Hammer, Wood, and Saw: Affordable Housing as Community Practice,” May 5, 2024

UUCC’s congregation theme for May is Equity. Come join us on Sunday, May 5th, when Starr King Student Ronnie Boyd presents a sermon entitled “Hammer, Wood, and Saw: Affordable Housing as Community Practice.” Ronnie explores how faith communities are uniquely positioned to help solve the affordable housing crisis that has struck our region. 

Ronnie Boyd is the Community, Faith & Justice Organizer at East Bay Housing Organizations in Oakland California. She is also a 2nd-year student at Starr King School for the Ministry in the Master of Divinity program. Ronnie organizes with Bay Area DRUUMM and works to connect UUs and UU congregations to social justice movements. She has a diverse background, organizing for police and prison abolition and public education reform. Working in affordable housing advocacy was a natural next step, as the grief of housing injustice lay as a backdrop to the organizing Ronnie did in both Chicago and the Bay Area.

Beautiful music will be provided by Diedrik Edholm and Vera Vanderschalk. Tom Devine will lead us in some rousing hymns, including Peter, Paul, and Mary’s “If I Had a Hammer.”

This in-person service takes place at 11:00 am at Odd Fellows Hall, 526 Main StreetHalf Moon Bay, CA, 94019.
