NOTE: SUNDAY’S VIRTUAL SERVICE WILL BEGIN AT 11:30 (SEE BELOW)
This Sunday, we invite you all to join the largest annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists in the world for the UUA’s Sunday Service from the General Assembly at 11:30 CT. Accessing the service couldn’t be easier or freer for any who want to watch.
All you have to do is follow this link: https://www.uua.org/ga/off-site/2022/sunday-worship and click play on the video. You can see the Order of Service there as well.
The first lines of the program description capture the essence of our recent experience at UUCO:
The last few years have not been easy, including in our local congregations. Whole swaths of members have simply stopped coming; COVID is confusing, and polarizing; many ministers have joined the great resignation; and Pew studies and friends alike have pronounced the end of the local church. In this moment, when so many of us might be wondering if we should just give up, and relent, now’s the time instead to double down on our commitment to the local church - this unique community that saves us and also breaks our hearts - often much more of the latter than we’d like to admit. In the midst of our culture of death, the church is a place of life. Or it is, as long as we are willing to bring our own lives to it.
Please follow the link for an 11:30 CT start on Sunday morning and join UUs from around the world for a morning of celebration, witness, and future-visioning for the existing and emerging power of the local Unitarian Universalist church.
Leading us in worship will be Rev. Gretchen Haley, Rev. Shari Halliday-Quan, Rev. Sean Neil-Barron, Lea Morris, Adam Podd, Joseph and Aimee Santos-Lyons, and Allison King with the GA Choir.
