We have rescheduled our celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. for this Sunday, January 27 with Rev. Aija Simpson preaching as we ask what is his memory calling us to do? Christin Kapp is worship associate.
The music of the oppressed is often a source of encouragement, empowerment, and personal responsibility to the greater good—a truth that often unsettles us as people of privilege, and rightly so. The choir today sings “rightly unsettling” music of Hezekiah Walker and Brazeal W. Dennard, and David offers spirituals arranged for solo piano by the great Calvin Taylor with band members Dani Fiore and Allen Roth.
Spirit Play class will hear a story that invites kids to think about the harms of racism and colorism with Jen Henry. Middles are taking a field trip to C.A.R.E.S. to deliver mitten tree donations with Heather Woodward and Primajoy Ramalingam! Be sure to arrive by 10:15; students will return by 11:30. Make sure to sign a permission slip and return to Emily. Laura Powers is doorkeeper with nursery care provided by Ann Midgley and Keisha Melott. Emily Crutcher is DRE.
And for anyone who braved the wintery weather on Sunday, January 13, you witnessed an inspirational and chilling performance by our guest soloist, Megan Mwaura. You now have another chance to see her in “For Colored Girls” playing at Open Stage in Harrisburg. Rev. Aija and Cindy Terlazzo will be attending on January 27….it would be awesome to have a supportive UUCV crowd in attendance.
