A virtual service led by Rev. Christie Anderson and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns.
Thanks to my husband’s intrepid curiosity, we had the rare and extraordinary opportunity to spend time with a man who was walking across America pulling a cart with a sign strapped to it reading “Love Life.” This worship service will highlight the lesson learned about encountering strangers based on whose shoes we’re in.

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and marks the beginning of the summer season. The wheel of the year is turning once again, bringing a new season of warmth, light, and sun. We are also experiencing a turning of the wheel in our culture right now. Life looks so different than it did even a few months ago. There are so many unanswered questions: will COVID-19 be with us forever? Will our jobs resume? Will we ever find a solution to the systemic racism that dominates America? Will our Black friends and family continue to suffer? These are big questions, for which no one yet has answers. This service will look at the turning of the seasons as a way of understanding and coping with all the changes in our lives.

At the core of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions is the principle of compassion, which calls us to work to end the suffering of others and to treat others as we wish to be treated. This service, which brings together the congregations of All Souls UU Church, Bellville, Ohio, and UU Church of Kent, Ohio will invite us into a deeper understanding of compassion and to reflect on our Second Principle, which challenges us to practice, justice, equity and compassion in our relationships.
