Sunday, April 12th Service on Zoom "What Do Our Sources Have to Teach Us About Growth and Transformation?" led by Linda Larson.
Most religions and cultures have some sort of festival around this time of year (or a little earlier, at the Equinox), marking the end of winter and the return of life in spring. In the Christian tradition, this is Holy Week, commemorating Jesus’ time in Jerusalem and his crucifixion, culminating in Easter and the miracle of resurrection. In Judaism, it is the time of Passover--the celebration of the Israelites’ survival of the ten Plagues of Egypt and their release from slavery. These stories are incredibly powerful, though they can be challenging even in the best of times. But now? We may find it difficult to celebrate a return to life when so many are dying; we may not relate to surviving plagues when disease is striking so many around us. Service leader Linda Larson and others will share readings from UU poets and preachers to spark discussion.

We have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power...These words from the Justice & Inclusion page of the UUA website remind us of what it means to be fully aware of circumstances in our community and how we might be of service. As our local community agencies ramp up to provide basic needs for all of us in this time crisis, let us expand our tradition of community support as much as possible. In addition to the groups that we already support, individually and collectively, we have listed below a few that have come to our recent attention. This list is also on the Social Action page of our website. If you would like to include other agencies, please let us know.
