" Everything is Holy"
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch
  
The idea that the sacred resides in every molecule of the mundane is a very old notion. But what if it were true, and its truth had something to do with every one of us? Today’s service is a good one to enjoy with friends, and introduce them to Unitarian Universalism!

Special music from
the Kaleidoscope Worship Band.
