Biodiversity Sunday: Honoring Our Local Web of Life

Biodiversity Sunday: Honoring Our Local Web of Life


We live on a vibrant, brilliantly biodiverse planet, and we know that this life is sacred and in need of protection more than ever. This service will honor the biodiversity of Central Texas through stories, music, and reflections. Biodiversity Sunday is a new UU cultural practice being introduced by the UU Ministry for Earth, on the Sunday closest to Endangered Species Day (May 21) and World Biodiversity Day (May 22).
