The Meeting Place: A Remembrance Day Service

Friday, November 11, 2022 at 10:30 a.m.

Nicole shares a heart-felt letter about her experience living at the intersection of military life and Unitarian Universalism. As we commit ourselves to the ever-widening circle of welcome, can we draw the circle even wider? In doing so, we might be surprised to learn about the values we share and the ways in which we can deepen our understanding of one another through dialogue. Let us come together to begin the conversation.

Sharing Our Stories

“I remember…”

Congregants are welcome to speak, one at a time, about a loved one from a war time, beginning with the words: I remember… We will alter between hearing Zoom participants and hearing church sanctuary participants. Zoom people should click on the raised-hand icon, and wait to be unmuted by the Zoom host; sanctuary people should step to the mic in front of the congregation.
