Just a reminder about tomorrow night’s screening, at UUCL, of Defying Hate.
Let’s watch it together–bring your friends. The film showcases a little known event in UU history that has major implications for today’s political and social environment. Film at 7 pm, Panel discussion immediately following, and this Sunday’s worship service will also highlight the film.
This PBS film, about a Unitarian minister and his wife who traveled to Nazi German to save the lives of refugees,has resonance for justice work today. It airs on Tuesday September 20.
We will be screening it at UUCL at 7pm that evening, followed by a panel discussion. The interfaith community and all interested justice seekers are invited to join us! The following Sunday, the 25th, our worship theme will be Defying Hate.
Our vision is a just world, guided by love, in which all people are empowered to engage in lives of meaning and purpose.
Our mission is to love inclusively, nurture spiritual growth and connection, freely explore life’s big questions, and act for justice.
