It CAN Happen Here
We know racism and intolerance exist in our community and in our world – the stories are in the news every day. It upsets us and it disturbs us, but we take some comfort in knowing that it’s “out there” and doesn’t happen in Unitarian Universalism. As we’ve seen in recent weeks, it does happen in Unitarian Universalism and even at First Church. Rev. Connie shares a message about racism and the threat it poses to our dream of Beloved Community.

The Warmth of Community
Dorothy Day wrote, “We have all known the long loneliness, and we have found that the answer is community.” There is comfort, joy and strength in being together. Today we welcome new members, acknowledge existing members and celebrate what it means to be part of community.

Transgender Day of Remembrance
Transgender Day of Remembrance is an opportunity for communities to come together and remember transgender people, gender-variant individuals, and those perceived to be transgender, who have been murdered because of hate. We remember those who were lost to violence this year and affirm our commitment to the inherent worth and dignity of all lives.
