Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth

“It will take all of us, working with all of us… doing what none of us can do alone”/

All of Us, the new climate hymn by Dana Clark/

Our faith calls us into relationship with the sacred elements of Earth and to put power in the hands of the many and not the few. On this Mothers Day, join the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth in meditation, song, and stories to honor nature’s elements and respond to the call for Earth Justice, a call to action in the face of the climate crisis. This worship video will be a visual feast, and the worship structure may be a bit different from what you are used to — lean into it and enjoy the journey! The service includes somatic movement exercises led by Sahar Mushin-Laufman. Please join in these as you are willing and able.

Connections between people — challenging as they can be–are also a way to nurture beauty. A particular form of connection that can exemplify this is often referred to as: family ties.

Anais Nin wrote, “We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.” What does that mean for how we define, recognize, and nurture beauty?

Woven Into a Single Garmet of Destiny

UUA President Susan Frederick Gray
Worship Associate – Gina Whitaker

We’re all connected: an interdependent whole. Therefore, says Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, “covenant is our religious response to our fundamental interdependence.” We make promises about how to be together, and how to be in the world. We also fall short of honoring those promises, inviting us to repair and strengthen the strands of community. The choice to mend broken strands of the web is an act of faithfulness. The liturgist for this service, Rev. Erika Hewitt (UUA Minister of Worship Arts), coordinated a wide range of leaders for you to enjoy—including two original songs composed just for this service.
