Kwanzaa Day 1: Umoja

26 Dec

Kwanzaa candles

Umoja = Unity

To begin Kwanzaa reflecting on Unity is powerful for it reminds us that first and foremost we are united with God. And because we are united with the divine we are connected to every other living being. Umoja reminds us to recognize that it is up to each one of us to choose actions that lead to unity with our family members, community members and all we come into contact with …while remembering that unity does NOT require uniformity.
