Today’s service called “People’s Choice” is our annual Question Box service. Questions have been submitted and questions will be solicited from those joining us virtually and those joining us in-person. What are your questions about Unitarian Universalism, Faith, God, Grief, Goodness, Theology, or more? Our Senior Co-Ministers will do their best to answer. Write them down now or when they come to mind. Questions will be solicited during the Offertory.
