Dear Members and Friends:
Although we are not meeting in person today, there are several ways for us to gather in community. We truly hope you take advantage of these opportunities.
First, please join us for an entire service on video, from Prelude to Benediction, featuring Rev. Colin’s sermon, a visual meditation, and opportunities to join in song. You can watch it at 10:30 Sunday morning, or later, or both! Access the service on our website at firstuu.org and on our YouTube channel.
Rev. Colin’s sermon draws back the veil on the changes happening in our world and society due to the pandemic. He asks us to consider not only the crucial need for compassion, but how this crisis might be used to work toward our goal of social justice.
You then have two opportunities to gather for an hour of reflection, sharing, and connection. Join us today at either 11:30 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. for an hour of group Reflection and Sharing led by our Director of Religious Community, Carol Burrus. We will have a chalice lighting and a chance for each member of our beloved community to share.
