We Hold These Truths

Sunday, July 3, 2022 at 10 AM

A multi-platform service led by Vivien Sandlund with Worship Associate Heidi Emhoff Wood.

The Declaration of Independence has long been understood to express the principles underlying the experiment that is the American republic: universal liberty and equality. These principles have always been aspirational. Americans have long sought to make liberty and equality real for all. How far have we come, and how do we move ahead to make this vision real? How can we as UUs work to ensure that all people are both free and equal?

Juneteenth: Reclaiming Identity

Sunday, June 19, 2022 at 10 AM

Led by Rev. Christie Anderson with guest poet, guest poet, Mwatabu Okantah (KSU).

Juneteenth is a celebration of the resilience and culture of descendents of the enslaved people from Africa. With this grounding, we welcome guest poet and KSU professor, Mwatabu Okantah who, using poetry, storytelling and narrative, will share his search for identity as “an American from Africa.” We will lift up the importance of examining and understanding one’s identity as an individual within a racial/ethnic group.

This PRIDE Sunday we will gather as a community of all ages to lift up stories of Joy! Hannah Roberts Villnave asks,  “Why not Rejoice as we resist? Dance as we demand change? Celebrate as we create a community that delights in all of who we are?” and we couldn’t agree more! Join us Sunday June 12th as we celebrate our communities and share the love that we create when we come together with PRIDE and JOY!
