UPCOMING SERVICES

Jewish and Christian Teachings, 4/5

Jewish and Christian Teachings
– Reverend Diana L. Smith
Join us as we finish our UU Sources worship service series. This Sunday we’ll reflect on how these times are calling us to challenge our assumptions about how the world works and what it means to live love actively in the world – or as the Jewish and Christian Sources remind us, to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves. We’ll also welcome new members.
