As Unitarian Universalists, our respect for the interdependent web of all existence calls us to protect our beloved planet. Join us for our Earth Day worship service where we will explore this call and the solidarity it requires — most importantly the solidarity with indigenous communities who have been living in deep relationship with the land for centuries.
