Our Sunday, February 3rd Service will take a somewhat different format: the morning will begin at 9:30 by watching a video of the “Ware Lecture” presented by Brittany Packnett to the UU General Assembly of 2018.
Established in honor of “the distinguished services of three generations of the Ware family to the cause of pure Christianity” these lectures have been presented to the Assembly each year since 1922. Ms Packnett is an educator, organizer, writer, and speaker, and has become a sought-after voice in the work of social change. She serves as “Teach For America’s” Vice President of National Community Alliances, where she leads civil rights work with communities of color.
The fellowship will then break for refreshments and announcements, followed by chalice lighting and then return to a discussion of the Ware Lecture for as long as people wish to stay. This will replace the formal Service for this Sunday.
