This Sunday at UCCSV - 5/29/22

Of course we wish we didn't live in such times where in the course of a month so many have been killed in mass shootings to say nothing of everyday gun violence. But we do. So this Sunday we will bring this to God. Although we had planned for Holy Humor Sunday, and deeply believe in joy and laughter as a way to heal and find our way through difficult times, it feels like forced positivity to celebrate Holy Humor Sunday at this moment in time. And such forced positivity is toxic and unhelpful. So this Sunday we will instead share a service of lament with space for grief and anger, and yes, healing as well. Because we need some space to express the wide range of our emotions, to pray fervently, and to consider how we actualize those prayers into advocacy for justice and peace. We encourage those who can to join us at 10am, either in person in the sanctuary or online on Zoom, because being together in community in times like these really does make a difference.
