Viola, the Story of a Song and the UU Hero Who Inspired It

Please join us this Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 10:00 AM for a lay service with Arlan Feiles: “Viola, the Story of a Song and the UU Hero Who Inspired It”

On the 52nd anniversary of the Selma voting rights march, we will hear the story of Viola Gregg Liuzzo, a participant who was murdered by the KKK on the final night of the march. Years later, her story gripped and inspired a NJ based songwriter. The song he wrote ultimately led to a key role in honoring Viola’s legacy.

Musicians: Singer-songwriter, Arlan Feiles – music and comments on Viola Gregg Liuzzo; Rick Sawyer & Dave Spungen, guitar and vocals; Ron Levy, piano.

All are welcome! Hope to see you there.

Small Group Discussions – This Sunday, March 19th

As your Ministerial Search Committee prepares to recommend a ministerial candidate to the membership of the Society, this is a time to reflect on how to make the next settled ministry successful. Choosing the right ministerial candidate is important. Just as important is the readiness of the membership to do its part to have a successful ministry.

The Sunday address will be “The Care and Feeding of the Ministry,” by Rev. Dr. Anthony P. Johnson, Interim Minister. Members of the Transition Team will facilitate small groups discussions following the service.

Hope to see you there!
