Freedom Requires Liberation

This week many will be celebrating July 4th as Independence Day. I invite you to reconsider what is being celebrated and how it can represent freedom that did not include liberation for all. How may we be reminded that we cannot truly be free until everyone is truly free. Sunday services: In-person or virtually on […]

There is a need to balance the necessary social justice work in the face of injustice with celebration and living fully rather than letting the joy be taken away by despair. Many are celebrating Pride month and Juneteenth this time of […]

This is one of many well-loved UU traditions, and one of a few rituals focused entirely on children and youth.
