Roots Hold Me Close, Wings Set Me Free

June 6, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Sunday School: Religious Education at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

Today’s Topic:

Every week, we sing, “roots hold me close, wings set me free” in worship. What is the paradox between rootedness providing stability, and flying providing liberation? Our congregation and Unitarian Universalism balance centuries-old roots with room for theological growth. How do strong roots nourish us for growth and liberation? Join us for our virtual annual Flower Communion Ritual, where we will share the flowers everyone is bringing to the service in a video, and you can choose one to ritually take home with you on paper. Remember to bring a flower to sit beside your livestream video, and paper and drawing tools for the ritual! Click to download the coloring page.
