SHARING OUR FAITH National Service 
10am PT | 11am MT | 12pm CT | 1pm ET | 2pm AT

Topic: A FAITH WORTH FAILING FOR

We often talk about Unitarian Universalism as a transformational faith – and yet to be transformed means to take a risk. How is it that we are adverse to taking such risks when it comes to widening the circle of who we are as a community? Join Revs. Shana Lynngood and Samaya Oakley for a service that explores mistakes we’ve made and how we can learn from them to become the transformational faith we proclaim to be.

Be part of the National “Sharing Our Faith” Sunday Service on February 7th.

This week we are joining Unitarian Universalists across the country for 1 national service.
