“Promise and Practice, Intention and Impact”

January 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister

The Reverend Jennifer Nordstrom.
Lead Music Director Alissa Rhode.
Two Services, 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

What would it be like if our Unitarian Universalist worship service centered entirely around the voices and the experiences of black Unitarian Universalists?

In the commitment to embrace the presence and leadership of people of color, Unitarian Universalists are learning to decenter whiteness, so that people of color are brought from the margins to the center.

Join us as we practice that work and promise a new way of being together, in this service that centers the voices and experiences of black UU leaders and religious professionals.

Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom is the Senior Minister for First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, beginning Fall 2016. A native Wisconsinite, she previously served as minister for Third Unitarian Church in Chicago, Illinois. Active in issues of peace, climate justice, and racial justice, she is currently co-editing a book on environmental justice and Unitarian Universalism, forthcoming in 2017.


Visitors to First Church are always welcome! Join us for coffee and conversation in the Common Room following each service.
Parents with children: feel free to let your children experience our Religious Education classes up to three times without commitment to see if it’s the right fit. Find Religious Education information here.
