This all ages service that explores what truly integrated multi-generational worship can look like! This service, on the theme of "Risk," will feature inclusive worship arts that congregations are using around the country.
Sunday March 5th, we continue with discussing the monthly theme: Risk. Rev. Libby Smith, guest minister, explores the concept and the UUDCD Choir offers relevant music; "Ain't gonna let nobody..." the traditional civil rights era protest song will be sung first. Before the sermon we will offer a setting of "Lonesome Valley" arranged by our own Dean Rishel.

We kick off the annual fund drive campaign today. In keeping with this month's theme of Identity, Mark Bernstein will talk about generosity and how it helps to define who we are as Unitarian Universalists. Donna Harris is the Worship Associate and Dick Veleta will provide the beautiful music.
As we wrap up our examination of "Prophecy," Rev. Peter and Worship Associate Norma Lewis consider how effective we can be when we have so many "causes" calling us. How do we pick and choose? What happens when we feel overwhelmed?
