When: 6/25/2017 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am|
NOTE: THIS SERVICE WILL BE HELD FROM 9:00 TO 10:30 am, TO COINCIDE WITH THE UUA GENERAL ASSEMBLY SERVICE. Summer Children’s Fellowship will be held simultaneously with the worship service. Open Forum Discussion will meet after the service, about 10:40 am.
Join us for live-streaming of the Sunday worship service from UU General Assembly (GA), the largest annual gathering of UUs, this year being held in New Orleans. Share the Plate: We will share our offering with the organization selected to receive the GA Offering – Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children. Rev. Mara Dowdall will lead the GA worship service on The Shared World. The poet Naomi Shihab Nye speaks of “the shared world,” in which we connect deeply with one another in and through our differences. What does it mean to live in “the shared world”? As we navigate this time of peril and possibility, beauty and anguish, despair and resistance, how might a theology and practice of “the shared world” help us find our way?
The Rev. Dowdall is Senior Minister of the First UU Society of Burlington, Vermont. Previously, she served congregations in Montpelier, Vermont and the Boston area, and spent a year as the UUA’s Interim Youth Ministry Director. A Philadelphia native, life-long Unitarian Universalist, and graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Mara worked in national politics before her call to ministry. She lives in Burlington with her husband, Ben, and their two young sons.
Our One-Service summer schedule of 10:00 worship & religious education will resume July 2 and continue through Sept 10.
