“Liberation in a Multicultural Society"

SUNDAY'S ORDER OF SERVICE
WATCH LAST SUNDAY'S SERVICE

Pulpit Guest: Tia Richardson

Worship Leader: Kathy Bradshaw


Collaborative art efforts are an avenue to express caring. They offer people from different backgrounds a chance for interaction and sharing of perspectives with mutual respect, through mural projects. These efforts offer insights into how, despite our differences, we can work together for the common good.


Tia Richardson is a full-time community mural artist based in her hometown of Milwaukee, WI, and beyond. Since 2007 her work has evolved into collaborative art efforts that offer community members from all walks of life a chance to freely express their feelings.

Grace and Anxiety

in a Time of Covid


Recently, I have heard about a number of new Covid-19 cases that really surprise me. Many are reacting with sharp tempers, depression and anxiety. The only real cure we have besides masking, vaccines, and boosters is doing our best to give one another grace.

MORE FROM REV D

UUCW Covid Update: We have been made aware that someone in the front row of worship last Sunday and who was recognized as a RE Teacher tested positive yesterday for Covid. They did not have symptoms on Sunday. Please keep masking and vaccinating.

Summer Worship Schedule


Working with our Worship Team has been very collaborative. I am excited to see a lot of their ideas coming together.


Check out the great summer service schedule that the Worship Ministry Team has planned for you.

Circle Round for Healing:

Honoring Suicide Loss

June 29, 6 pm

Our congregation was shaken when long-time member Sue Morgan died by suicide in downtown Wauwatosa last year. As we approach the anniversary of that passing, many still hold pain, loss, and trauma from her death as well as feelings around suicide. This will be a healing circle where anyone can join us for a covenanted ritual. We will have an opportunity to share where we are today, how we have or have not healed, and to lay down our thoughts in a sacred ring of love.
