Our online service 'Working for a World Community' features two important UU figures in our country's civil and voting rights history -- Viola Liuzzo and Rev. James Reeb. Both were recognized nationally for their sacrifices to these important causes. In addition, three of our members will provide info on our recent Climate Justice events and suggestions about how our membership may support Social Concerns projects in the future. Please visit us via this Zoom link or the one at on Sunday -- 10:30 am for fellowship and 11 am for the service. If you are unable to attend, you may wish to view the interactive service slides.

If you are on Facebook the service event is here.

Last Sunday's service recap:
Last Sunday's sermon by Reverend Dr. Marylin Sewall asked the question '... is it not possible even in this mechanistic world we have created to cultivate attitudes of thankfulness, of connection with the earth, of recognition of our interdependence with all other species? To cultivate a spirituality that is more inclusive than just our personal relationship with the Divine, just our personal salvation, but rather a spirituality that acknowledges our relationship with and dependence upon the earth and all her creatures?' Her sermon suggested that it is, and she suggested ways in which we may make a difference. View the service slides.
