 "Courage+Gratitude+Forgiveness+Compassion In Action=CHOOSING LOVE!"
Here at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick, we join together to encourage spiritual growth, build a beloved community, and act for peace and justice.  This month try and take some time to reflect with your families on what it means to choose love.  Check out this great information from Jesse Lewis' "Choose Love Movement" and try out the Courage Calendar as a family!
