Sunday, February 21, 2021 – What We Cannot Unknow

As our nation marks a national transition, what have we learned which we now must act upon as people of faith and commitment to the human family? And how does this become part of our commitments, to ourself and to our spirit? Join Revs. Rodney Lemery and Leslie Takahashi for this service. For the Affirmation of Community, send in a photo of yourself with a word or phrase of what you don’t want to forget in these times.
