UUFA Special Announcement – Please attend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Events Next Week

Good Morning UUFA Members and Friends,

I am writing today to urge you to support and attend our local community events next week in celebration of the life and legacy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I have the great pleasure of serving on the planning committee at OU and I regret that I neglected to include this information in this week’s Greensheet. I think you’ll agree with me that the legacy of peace, non-violence and support of the beloved community is deeply connected to our UU principles.  Please consider attending the events scheduled and you can learn more by viewing the schedule attached.

In community,

Barb Harrison, UUFA Recorder

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”  Martin Luther King Jr.
