"A Heretic's Healing Journey"— led byDionne Ford. UUs come from a long line of heretics, people who chose what and how to believe. “We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life” according to our fourth principle. This sermon explores our fourth principle through the legacy of spiritual choice passed down to me through my family and the healing experience of uncovering the spiritual practices of my ancestors. “Only by knowing our truths can we act boldly on our journey of healing.” - William Sinkford

"The Glorious Ordeal" — led by Laura Anthony, UUCM member. Is there anything scarier than being truly known? In times where it is easier than ever to misunderstand each other, we are called to embrace the danger of opening our heart.
"Happy Birthday to You!"— led by Dana N. Moore, minister UUCM worship leader. This service is a celebration of individuals, of life, of YOU!
