Sunday, April 24th, Rice Lake Blue Hills Unitarian Universalists will commemorate Earth Day in a service presented by Dr. Kent Shifferd of Trego, “Standing On The Side Of Love”, beginning at 10 a.m.  As UU’s, we believe love is not simply an emotion, but a behavior enhanced by action.

Dr Shifferd will present an account of BHUU’s Social & Environmental Justice Committee efforts in behalf of preserving the sanctity of Wisconsin’s water, countering Enbridge’s proposed Line 5 as a threat to the Bad River Watershed and Lake Superior.  In support of Native American treaty rights and the integrity of pure water, Line 5 is seen as a threat to both.
