10am Worship with UUA General Assembly, then our 11am Zoom Reflections and Coffee Hour

Sunday Morning Worship with the
Largest Annual Gathering of UUs:
“Beyond the Water’s Edge” 

 

Sunday, June 28, 2020, at 10:00am NOTE EARLIER TIME!  LINK:  uua.org/ga

These are uncertain and volatile times. These are times that call on us to work towards our collective liberation while also tending to our spiritual needs and caring for others. How do we ready ourselves for what is being asked of us? How do we keep moving even when we don’t feel ready? 

By Rev. Joan Javier-Duval. She serves as Minister of the Unitarian Church of Montpelier, VT. She is the daughter of immigrants from the Philippines, mother of a kindergartener, and spouse of a proud Vermonter. Beauty, gratitude, and love are at the heart of her faithful striving for collective liberation and a thriving planet.

This powerful, communal worship experience will stream on uua.org/ga on Sunday, June 28, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. EDT and again at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Members of the public are welcome to view the service. The worship service will include a collection for the Tomaquag Museum, an indigenous museum featuring an extensive collection and archive of Southern New England tribal communities.  Here’s the order of service:
