Annual Water Communion

speaker:

The annual Water Communion is a sacred ritual in UU churches. It began 40 years ago as a way to provide a more meaningful spiritual experience for women. Over time it has been a time for celebrating our connection to one another in community. Our service this year honors the history of this tradition as well as our monthly theme of Transformation. Join Rev. Sara as we explore connections and transformation! There is no need to bring water to the service.

Rev. Sara Green is the Youth and Young Adults Program Manager at the Unitarian Universalist Association. She identifies as a southern, cis/queer/poly, Black femme minister. Sara imagines liberation/salvation/beloved community as communities that have the ability to eat good food together, experience pleasure in our bodies and regularly put their hands in soil—all the while free from fear and violence by way of all of the cultural and legal changes that must happen in order for this world to exist. She understands herself as part of a legacy of cultural workers, healers, maroons and creoles, southern queer freedom fighters and artists trying to shape god.

Children (age 5 and older) and Youth will be meeting in person in their classes after being present in the sanctuary for the first part of the service. Children 6 weeks to 4 years of age are welcome in our Nursery.
