To Fix or Fight the System?

11:00 a.m.

158 years ago this week, in an attempt to arm slaves for revolt, John Brown led a raid on Harper’s Ferry. Of the six people who funded Brown’s raid, five were Unitarians. This week in worship we will seek wisdom and courage from our past as we consider today’s liberal and radical perspectives on how to build a better world. Middle and high schoolers are invited to stay for whole of worship while children in elementary school will join Rev. Christian in the Fireside Room for Children’s Chapel after the time for all ages.

Defying Hate

9:30 and 11:15 am

On September 20th people around the country will be tuning into PBS to watch Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War, the Ken Burns documentary about the Unitarian couple whose work in Europe saved the lives of hundreds of refugees. Join us this week as we steep ourselves in our tradition’s legacy of moral courage and how we can continue it by supporting refugees today.
