Honoring a UU tradition, we will celebrate our homecoming with the sharing of water. We will gather together and pour waters to express our various experiences over the summer. Bring water from a source that matters to you – and don’t worry if you forget! There will be water!

Our colleagues and lay leaders of color within Unitarian Universalism have asked for congregations to participate in a White Supremacy Teach-In – meaning that we are to address the white supremacy in our UUA. This is a gift of love to us from our siblings of color – let us welcome it!
