"Listen to the Truth That’s Inside You”
High School Senior Bridging Service
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch and Dave Cicero, Lifespan Director of Religious Education

Unitarian Universalists recognize that the transition from being a high school youth to young adulthood (age 18-35) is a moment to be celebrated, a process to be supported, and requires a lifelong commitment from all of us. Today’s Bridging Ceremony service is the way we honor the transition for UUCW’s high school seniors. Meet them today, celebrate their achievement, and cheer for their future plans!
Your continuing financial support of UUCW is beautiful and generous. THANK YOU.

White Supremacy Culture –

By uncovering, acknowledging, and examining the dominant culture of white supremacy and its harmful impacts among us we can build a congregation and society of equity and justice.

LIVING OUR VALUES
Organic farming improves the soil,
is good for the environment
and our own health.

While many small farmers follow organic practices, they may not get the USDA certification due to cost. Many are happy to share details about how they farm when you shop at local stands. If you can’t buy organic but are concerned about minimizing exposure to pesticide residue, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) offers a shopper's guide.

"A Fistful of Water”
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch

Compassion — that's our Soul Matters theme for June this year. The Soul Matters folks originally planned for the theme to be Play, but changed course after the COVID-19 pandemic began. Truly, though, don't we need to be both a People of Compassion and a People of Play right now? Yes we do!

The UUCW Annual Meeting via Zoom will follow today's service.
Come  as  you   are  - leave inspired!
