“We the People…”

Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, preaching
Alison Kendall, Worship Associate

ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 am

The democratic principles of our society have been distorted, threatened, and ignored over the centuries. Our religious ancestors played a critical role in establishing democracy in the United States, and our fifth Unitarian Universalist Principle affirms: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” Join us this Sunday as we explore the state of our democratic republic and what these times are demanding of us.

“Let There Be Light”

Rev. Kikanza Nuri-Robins, preaching
Sue Bickford, Worship Associate

ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 am  Daylight Savings begins today.

As you look forward to the Vernal Equinox, the Coming of Spring, and the presence of more light in the world, look around yourself and notice. What is dancing in the shadows? What is in the shadows that you might shine more light on? Come worship with us as we consider what aspects of ourselves we turn to the light and what remains in the shadows.

The Rev. Dr. Kikanza Nuri-Robins is a consultant to people and organizations in transition.  She works with non-profits and faith-based organizations around the country helping them address issues of leadership, communication, and cultural competence.  Her most recent book is Fish Out of Water, and she is currently collaborating on a book about Gender Identities.  She is a member of our UUSM community. www.KikanzaNuriRobins.com

Generous Congregation Recipient:  #UUtheVote Nationwide

Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of working to expand democracy and to shape a world in which all people are free and flourishing. Participating in our democracy is not only about our fifth principle. As UUs, our deepest beliefs are a life-giving, life-saving, life-sustaining alternative to the narratives and policies of domination, supremacy, exceptionalism, and exploitation that are on the rise. The stakes couldn’t be higher. 
#UUtheVote is a coordinated campaign of action and advocacy. UUs are joining forces across the country to organize; to engage in spiritually grounded, values-based issue conversations in our communities; and to vote a Side with Love agenda. For more info on how UUSM is taking action locally, check out “Let’s #UUtheVote in 2020!” This is an opportunity to communicate our passion to voters nationwide. Thank you for your generous support.
