10:30 SERVICE: LOVE KEEPS REACHING OUT

Rev. Phil Lund will return to the Blue Hills UU to give another service.  He notes that now more than ever, our country needs to know that the values of justice, equity, and compassion are alive and well in our UU congregations and fellowships. The best way to do this is by living out those values in ways that reach out in love to help those in our communities who are harmed by injustice and inequality. UU religious communities can do just that by finding the place where, as Fredrick Buechner says, our “deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
