Water Communion

Revs. Kristin and Christian Schmidt with Ann Riley

11:00 a.m.

You are invited to bring a small jar or bottle of water from a special place or experience in your life this past year. Whether collected from last winter’s impressive rains, from Lake Tahoe, or just from the garden hose, the waters we each bring will be mingled with some from ceremonies in years past. We use this water to bless the year ahead and throughout the year to bless and dedicate the new children born and adopted among us. This is a service for all ages, and as always childcare is available for babies, toddlers, and young children.

Today UUCB was honored to hear Dr. Satsuki Ina recount in vivid detail the history of the U.S. government's shameful incarceration of her family and 120,000 other people of Japanese ancestry and the acts of resistance, defiance and struggle by her parents and many others.

She reminded us of how important it was for people outside the incarceration centers to support and stand in solidarity with those who were imprisoned. And how rarely it happened. These teachings reverberate across the decades to our time.

In speaking of the Japanese American community in this era of escalating attacks on immigrant communities, Ms. Ina said, "We are a gathering storm of resistance to the injustices of today."

May we stand in solidarity.

We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. - Elie Wiesel
