Music has a long history as an art form used in activism. Protest songs have been sung since the founding of America and continue to be used by artists as a way of sharing their politics. The earliest protest songs and the tradition of using music in this way go back to the founding of America.
 
In the spirit of Unitarian Universalism, this Sunday’s service created by our Music Director, Charles Faulk, helps us delve deeper into the heart of our faith. Many people come to Unitarian Universalist congregations because of our movement’s reputation for engaging in social justice work as a matter of faith. Let’s celebrate the legacy that UU’s carry forward in making tangible progress to advance human rights, dismantle systems of oppression and uplift the inherent dignity of people around the world.
 
Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee and socializing or stay after the service!
