Summer services sparkle

We have a terrific lineup of services this summer!

July 4: Amy’s last service before several weeks of study leave and vacation makes the stirring promise that Democracy is Coming.

July 11 shows us how, with the dream team Ware Lecturers from last week’s UUA General Assembly, Stacey Abrams and Desmond Meade. With the Ware Lecture, the UUA president brings a distinguished speaker to the General Assembly; past Ware Lecturers have been Martin Luther King, Jr., Mary Oliver, Kurt Vonnegut, Saul Alinsky . . . To that number are now added these two people who are bringing democracy to the USA. Stacey Abrams is fighting back against voter suppression in Georgia and across the country; Desmond Meade is bringing the right to vote back to returning citizens in Florida and inspiring everyone whose state denies former prisoners this right. They are sensational speakers, so if you didn’t get to go to the Ware Lecture, it’s coming to you.

July 18 continues the connection to our wider Unitarian Universalist community by bringing us the Sunday morning worship from General Assembly, led by the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis, with a stunning sermon by the Rev. Karen Hutt.

July 25, we will be visited by Sister Plush Lovebud of San Francisco’s legendary Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, preaching to all of us about the spirit and theology of Drag.

August 1, the president of the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association, Leika Lewis-Cornwell, leads us toward her vision of a more expansive, inclusive humanism. Ms. Lewis-Cornwell was the intern minister at the UU Church of Annapolis, MD and as she moves towards ordination, continues in her work as a Strategy and Policy Consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton.

August 8, another bright star of the coming generation of UU ministers, the Rev. Jami Yandle, demonstrates the Joy of Resistance. Jami is a board-certified hospice chaplain and activist.

And then Amy returns on August 15 with a question box sermon, so bring your questions and see if you can stump the minister!
