"The Last Shall Be First"
As we UU's embark on our individual “search(es) for truth and meaning” it helps to examine some of the old-fashioned virtues like charity, forbearance, reverence, and humility. Today we'll look at the virtue of humility through a UU lens.

Led by Rev. Nancy Crumbine
“Marching Now and Then"
Personal reflection on the Washington DC Women’s March of 2017, the marches of the 1960’s, and the 100th anniversary of the National Women’s Party marches of 1917.
