“Inviting the Whole of People”
Church should be a sanctuary for our people, a place where our authentic selves are welcome.
What does that mean when people come to church bringing differences of culture, race, and ethnicity? How do we create refuge for the whole of people?
How do we embody our Unitarian Universalist values in our welcome, our worship, and our communal practice?
Please join us in this worship service with guest speaker Christopher Sims, a Unitarian Universalist lay leader of color from Rockford, IL, who travels the country sharing his poetry and wisdom with Unitarian Universalist congregations.
