VIUF welcomes back one of our favorite speakers, the Rev. Amanda Aikman. The Rev. Aikman is a retired Unitarian Universalist minister who has served churches in the Pacific Northwest since 1994. Her topic this week is “The Dangers of a Single Story.” She says “In one of the most popular TED Talks of all time, Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Adichie warned that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding. At this time of tremendous change, let’s consider what damage a ‘single story’ can do, and how we might hear one another into healing.”
