Sermon delivered by Dr. Charlie Clements on February 7, 2010. Dr. Clements is a well-known human rights activist and public health physician. Early in his career, after he quit the Air Force as a pilot because he felt war was immoral, he chose to work in the midst of El Salvador's civil war, where the villages he serveed were bombed, rocketed, or strafed by some of the same aircraft in which he trained. He captured his experiences in Witness to War which was made into an Academy Award-winning documentary.
Dr. Clements will soon be stepping down from his role as president and CEO of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee to accept a new position as head of a major human rights research and teaching institution at Harvard University. For the time being, he can still be reached through the UUSC at http://uusc.org/email/1799/field_email.
