Ask More, A Question Service
August 1, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
We will join our sibling congregation online in Appleton, Wisconsin today! Rev. Dena has long enjoyed her colleague and friend Rev. Leah’s facebook posts featuring inspiring, hilarious, thoughtful and insightful daily questions from her children. This well-loved annual service at the Fox Valley UU Fellowship comes from some life instructions by poet Naomi Shihab Nye. Join us for her words, as well as some choice selections of the Ongiri children’s everyday questions. The sermon will be Rev. Leah’s extemporaneous responses to as many of our collective questions as time allows. That means it’s up to you! What have you been wondering about?
