Outdoors on the UUCSR grounds AND live on Zoom HERE
For the final Children's Worship of the congregational year, we wish to commemorate this time together of exploring JUSTICE in many of its forms by gathering outdoors and in person, and simultaneously on Zoom, for this extra-special service called Liberation in June, where we will hear justice stories of abolitionism and LGBTQ liberation.
All are welcome to join Lifespan Religious Education (RE) Coordinator, Carson Jones, and RE Music Specialist, George Weisman, when they lead the live, interactive Children’s Worship for All Ages at 1:00 PM.
RE Families, please keep an eye out in your e-mail on Monday, June 8 for the link to register for this event.
On June 13: A young Black girl wakes up one June morning in Texas, not yet knowing that this will be her and her family's last day as enslaved people, and that their lives will be All Different Now: Juneteenth, the First Day of Freedom by Angela Johnson & E.B. Lewis. Then, we'll meet Harvey Milk, a man with a dream that gay people would soon be treated as equals. One day, Harvey asks his friend, Gilbert Baker, to create a symbol for the gay liberation movement. And on June 25, 1978, this new symbol, the Rainbow Flag, flew proudly at the front of the march in their home of San Francisco. Come be inspired by the legacy of Harvey, Gilbert, and the Rainbow Flag when we read Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag by Rob Sanders and Steven Salerno.
Together we will explore how people celebrate their freedom from oppression, we'll sing together, and George will play a meaningful anthem.
We are grateful for this year together of living our 2nd Unitarian Universalist Principle of Justice, Equity, and Compassion.
