Spending Time With the Truth

This is an unusual Sunday service, at an unusual and urgent time in our faith.  The Unitarian Universalist Association Board, the UU Ministers Association, and the Liberal Religious Educators Association among others are urging all UUA congregations to heed a call from Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) - to hold a "Teach-In" on the painful reality of racial inequity in our country, and in Unitarian Universalism. Many of us now understand American culture to be steeped in assumptions of "white supremacy."  Just what is the truth?  And how shall we respond?

How can the kaleidoscope be our metaphor for a Unitarian Universalist theology that is always in a state of transformation, and discovery as people and elements flow in and out, revealing a new beauty to our every evolving search for truth and meaning. Let's explore this together!

This year’s stewardship campaign is posing two questions: How has West Shore UU Church changed lives? and How could West Shore change even more lives, even more effectively, in the future? Answers offered so far have been fascinating, and broadly focused. Stewardship is all about connecting people’s dreams of a vital future with the resources needed to make it all happen. The Free Spirit Band will play!
