2014-05-04 Bread and Roses

Caitlin Cotter, Worship Leader; Rowan Labbe-Renault, Worship Associate

“First” Sunday style worship: Children & Youth in leadership roles for first 30 min. In 1912 Rose Schneiderman, a labor union organizer and women’s rights activist, said in a speech “The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.” Bread and Roses was the rallying cry for striking textile workers in Lawrence, Massachusetts who eventually won overtime pay and better working conditions. We’ll remember the legacy of the  read and Roses Strike, and celebrate International Worker’s Day. Yes, it is bread we fight for, but we fight for roses too!
