Hope: It's Infectious

For this Earth Day service, we celebrate the gains we have made at UUCPA when we have united for environmental action. We all know the challenges facing our beautiful planet, and can get quite overwhelmed by them. But fear and despair sap the will to act, whereas hope generates energy like a gust spinning a wind turbine, or like a ray of sun on a photovoltaic panel. Come join us and we’ll practice inspiring hope in each other. Bring a friend who needs a boost. We promise they’ll leave singing!

Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern

Worship Associate: Bill Hilton. Bill, along with Kevin Ma, co-chairs UUCPA’s Green Sanctuary Committee, which is part of the movement of Unitarian Universalists working for climate justice and a greener world.

Special music: Margaret & Kristoph, Celtic music — live in person!
