Fighting for Our Lives
Rev. Jeannie Shero
Join us for a service lifting up the struggle to end gun violence. The madness of one shooting after another is staggering and can seem insurmountable. It will come to an end only with the thoughtful and peaceful engagement of people of good will who are willing to work to make it so. Our congregation has been engaged in the fight for our lives for years, and we pause to rekindle the fire of commitment to wage peace in the nation.
Beloved Community Offering: to support our church and the work of its ministries.
9:30 a.m. at the Colorado State Capitol
Claiming the Audacity of Love
11th Annual Standing on the Side of Love Service at the Capitol
The world we are called to create is one where all our human and planetary diversity can live well and in peace. As people of faith, we are not democrats, republicans, libertarians, greens, or any other political label. We are loyal only to what is higher and more noble than any single human or institution. We are dedicated and accountable to justice, morality, compassion, equality, and redemption. This Love to which we are called is a profound spiritual challenge. The Love that calls us is anything but sentimental and weak, it is a power greater than any one of us, requires great courage, making real connections, speaking truth to power, and partnering with the marginalized. Come raise your voices as joint UU congregations on the west Capitol steps, answering the call of love in the public square during this demanding and perplexing time.
