Water Communion
Rev Andrew Moeller
On this our home coming Sunday, we return from our summer schedule and celebrate our interconnection through our UUSB tradition of water communion. We invite people to bring sample of water to add to our water communion bowl that is symbolic of a special place or transformative experience one experience during the Ssummer. Please note that, typically, the service runs at least 90 minutes to accommodate the extended sharing; please plan accordingly.

Reflections on 2017 General Assembly
Reverend Drew Moeller
This past June, UUs from all over the world gathered in New Orleans, Louisiana to meet and discuss issues that are relevant to the movement. Among those issues are our denominations ongoing conversation on how "White Supremacist" habits continue to prevent our beloved movement from living up to our aspirations of being a liberal religious movement, from being fully open and embracing towards People of Color. Come and hear Rev. Drew, Andrew Sarto, and Karen Childs talk about their varied experiences from GA and learn how we are moving forward as a denomination.
