Ellen Carvill-Ziemer is in the middle of giving an introduction about the history of Christmas celebrations for her homily "God In Between" when a rowdy bunch interrupt her to put on a play. Alex and Sarah Piotrowski, Bill Hudson, Hollie Brubaker, and John Youel perform. The play itself is adapted from one collected in Gander Kentucky in 1930 by Marie Cambell.
In this service we will ask, “What is an Ally?” and “What moves that person to stand with another through hardship when being a bystander is an option?" We will explore the important role that straight allies play in how gay people are accepted and respected in our church and in our communities. Together, both gay and straight, using poetry and song and stories, we will share how being and having loving and supportive allies helps all of us to live our UU principles.
