“Days of Awe“
Pam Strother & UUSO Congregants

Children to Classrooms at 10:30

Our Unitarian Universalist celebration of the Jewish
holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

to remember our dead, and to recommit ourselves to a
vision of the good and the true.

“With Fierce Love: A Unitarian Universalist Approach to Social Justice”
Elayne Mosher-Campoli

Many wonder what they can do to make a difference and
how to keep up with the issues of the day.
Everyone can be part of the solution;
It starts with love and continues with ferocity.


October 8 – Sunday Service at 10:30AM
“Fake News or Good News?”
Rev. Craig Schwalenberg

As a people dedicated to the responsible search
for Truth and Meaning, in this new world of
“fake news” and “virtual reality”,
how do we discern and disseminate the real truth?
