"Ourselves, Our World, Our Stories"
Rev. Scott Aanseng
We can keep on having half-conversations about who’s right and who’s wrong, and further feed the brokenness that threatens to tear us apart. Or we can see each other as part of a larger We--a We that is broken, but a We that is in this brokenness together.
Rev. Scott Aaseng has sought to bring together congregational ministry and work for justice in the world since his early days as an activist on church college and seminary campuses in the U.S. and South Africa in the 1980s. As a Lutheran pastor on the southwest side of Chicago, he helped found a community-based youth development and organizing initiative, and went on to do multi-state organizing with the American Friends Service Committee. Since finding his UU grounding at Third Unitarian in Chicago, he has served UU congregations in Oak Park IL, Quincy IL and Hobart IN, and now leads the growing Unitarian Universalist Advocacy Network of Illinois (UUANI).
