Last summer about 150 Unitarian Universalist ministers traveled to Phoenix, Arizona, to protest the new immigration law there. Twenty-nine were arrested for committing acts of civil disobedience. Please join us this Sunday, February 20, as the Reverend Frieda Gillespie addresses the issue of immigration in a sermon titled “Strangers in Our Midst.”
“Immigration is an incredibly complex social issue, especially in the states on the Mexican border,” says Reverend Frieda. “Let’s explore some of the issues together.”
The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed at 11:30 by coffee and fellowship, and then by our new, multi-generational Religious Education Program, which will be held from 11:45 to 12:30. Visitors are always welcome.
