Dec 5 – Joy!
Life is complicated, and the state of the world often evokes sadness and cynicism rather than joy. During the holidays many people also fight the sense of a forced march to be merry and bright. Deep joy at this dark season or any time might seem like a distant possibility. Interim minister Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz thinks that perhaps it’s within reach and worth working on after all.

Live streamed here, with limited in-person attendance. Look for registration link later in the week.

9:30 a.m. Forum -- Presumed Guilty? Steve Williams, organizer of Athens Area Courtwatch Project and a leader of Oconee Street UMC’s Racial Justice Task Force, shares the good, the bad, and the ugly about what is transpiring with each of these initiatives.

December 5, 2021 Sunday Worship:
Call all your pal-icas; it’s time for Chalica! Unitarian Universalists observe holidays and holy days from many traditions throughout the year, broadening our minds and our spirits. Once a year, though, we have a chance to go deep into our own tradition with Chalica, a modern celebration of our principles and our connections with each other and the earth. Interim minister Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz leads the fun!
Thank you for being here with us today!

Good morning everyone!

I love when Deb does sign language embracing our diversity culture through multilingualism

Well done. Love seeing this. I look forward to seeing a choir behind Rev. Lisa soon.

Thanks to Maddalena and Deb for sharing their talents with us. ❤❤

Great to see Maddalena grow from infant to duet partner with Amber.

I can't describe the feeling of seeing all these people back to our sanctuary... We are a force to reckon 🙂 I miss everybody there...

I can hear the chatter of our congregation assembling, although I can't see them yet.

And that principle will be a major change for UUs!!! Can't wait to seee that adopted!!!

Thank you to all volunteers! You are so appreciated! ♥️♥️♥️

Thank you, Amber You are super as usual!

Great translation, Dan.

Loved this service y’all!

This story always gives me chills!

Buon giorno

That is not a new principle. The proposal should repair the wording of our 3rd principle.

I love hearing the chat of folks in the sanctuary!

Come to Nifty Gifty this Saturday!

Hello All.

Good morning all🌞
