The Galilean Uprising

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

Palm Sunday is recognized in Christian churches as the day Jesus of Galilee arrived in Jerusalem to confront Roman imperialism with a movement to liberate the oppressed.  Jesus posed a radical commitment to his followers that continues to impact our world millennia later.  UUs have a love/hate relationship with this narrative for good reasons.  But, what can this call to a world-changing radical commitment still mean for our community?

Charley Earp is the solo minister at the Unitarian Church of Quincy, Illinois, a 2018 Meadville Lombard Theological School alumnus, and a social media content creator.  He lives in Evanston, Illinois.
