“Her Voice”

10:30am in person and on YouTube (limited seating in the Lower Meetinghouse Main Room to view the online service)

Join us as we enter the winter and holiday season with a monthly ministry theme of “Earth.” Reverend Rebecca’s sermon will draw on the work of Robin Wall Kimmerer. The service will reflect on the concept of animacy as we ask ourselves how we can listen to and be in better relationship with the Earth.

“Why is the world so beautiful?”

-Robin Wall Kimmerer

Special Congregational Meeting

FRS will hold a special congregational meeting on Sunday, December 4th. Registration is required. For more information, please contact info@frsuu.org.

 

JUSTICE SUNDAYS

As Unitarian Universalists, we’re called on to advocate, organize, and act for justice as we strive to live out our faith in the world. Unitarian Universalism challenges us not only to seek our own truth and meaning, but to walk a path that honors the inherent worth and dignity of every person, as well as the interdependent web of all beings.

Our Justice Sundays bring together the cornerstones of Unitarian Universalism: normal Sunday worship to feed our spirits followed by time enjoying lunch together as a community to grow in fellowship, and justice learning and action to help us live our faith. On these once-a-month Sundays, join us in the lower meeting house after the worship service for a communal lunch of soup and salad and return to the sanctuary (or to a designated location in the community) at 12:30 for an hour of justice learning and action. Each month will have a different focus, though all are interrelated. Learn. Act. Connect. Live your faith. Join us!

Justice Sunday 2022-23 Dates: December 11; January 29; February 5; March 19; April 16; May 28
