Come Out and Play!

Join us for this service via an on-line Zoom Meeting

As the Wheel of the Year turns again toward the Summer Solstice, we also mark the Juneteenth holiday.  As we celebrate these times, we also witness the wrongs that continue to be inflicted to and in our world.  This morning, we’ll explore whether and when we need permission to play, and how it can help us learn and grow.

Share the Plate

  • This morning, our Share the Plate donations will go to Transgender Religious professional Unitarian Universalists Together.  TRUUsT’s mission is to support Unitarian Universalist trans+ religious professionals, advocate for each other and our ministries, and transform Unitarian Universalism and our world.  Their work to counter oppression includes but is not limited to dismantling racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, classism, ageism, colonialism, and sizeism.  Donations can be made by typing the link you see on your screen into your web browser. The link will also be shared in Chat and available on our website.
