May 13, 2018: Standing on the Side of Love

Presenter: Karen Fothergill

Sunday, Karen Fothergill, will present a service titled “Standing on the Side of Love”.

As members of the Unitarian Universalist Association:

We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people. All people deserve respect and love for who they are.

Right now love and fear are rising up in our nation. We stand on the side of love. We harness love’s power to stop oppression, exclusion, and violence against people who are targeted because of their identity.

We believe elected leaders have a responsibility to unify and advance our communities, not engage in scapegoating or dividing neighbor against neighbor.

We are working to build a society where the color of our skin, the conditions of our birth, who we love, how we worship, and how we express our gender do not determine our worth, rights, and opportunities.

We are all created in God’s image. People of every faith honor God by honoring the diversity of God’s creation.

We believe that the essence of the individual is not based upon outward appearances. No one should be judged based on the size, shape, or functionality of his or her body. We celebrate the diversity of creation, including intersex bodies and transgender identities.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on our spiritual journeys.

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available.
