Service: Freedom and Other Ineffable “F” Words with Pastor Joshua Berg

Day and Time
Sunday Jul 24, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

We just celebrated American freedom on July 4th and July 17th will be the celebration of The World Day of International Justice. Our Unitarian Universalist Second Principle calls us to act with justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Without justice, equity, and compassion, there is no freedom. Yes, so many freedoms are continually threatened, attacked, and stolen, including the freedom to live, violently denied so many, even in our own American schools and temples. These celebrations of freedom and justice must therefore be a call to re-evaluate, at long last, what justice and freedom mean in America. Let us worship together, calling up the sacred and the spiritual in the question of, “How to live justice, equity and compassion in all human relations, that we may truly be free? With Rev. Dr. Betty Stapleford, Worship Host
