WORSHIP SERVICES: This month’s worship theme is Perseverance
Sunday, February 4: “Racism and the Rigged System”
Rev. J. Mark Worth, UUCE Minister Emeritus, Worship Leader
Carol Rosinski, Worship Associate
Potluck Following Worship
It’s been said, “We need more than one Martin Luther King, Jr., sermon per year.” So here’s another. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly said “The system is rigged.” If that is true, who does it favor?
Videos on Transgender Issues
Please plan to return to the Sanctuary following potluck on Sunday at 12:45 to view two short videos sponsored by the Welcoming Renewal Task Force. These videos focus on transgender issues. The first is titled Just Call Me Kade, about a child who was declared a girl at birth but by 18 months was making his parents understand that he was a boy. This video is 28 minutes long. The second video is titled No Dumb Questions. The beloved uncle of three little girls is becoming Aunt Barbara, the woman she knew she was. After the transition, Aunt Barbara visits her nieces. This documentary was made about the family’s support and Aunt Barbara’s visit. This video is 24 minutes long.
Sunday, February 11: “. . .Nevertheless she persisted!”
