It’s time to express our gratitude for all we have. This intergenerational worship service is a chance to spend time together with all ages, extending our appreciation and love to each other and the world. It’s also the day we will introduce “Guest at Your Table,” the UUSC’s longest-established fundraising and education program for congregations. The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization advancing human rights together with an international community of grassroots partners and advocates. We will kick off this year’s program with materials for all members and families to learn what UUSC partners are doing to address immediate injustices – as well as what they envision for the future. At this extraordinary juncture in history, we think their stories will offer inspiration and guidance on the path toward justice.
About our musician:
“Firepit” Mike Ludwick taught himself to play guitar as a teenager, cutting his teeth on the Beatles and Bob Dylan. During the 2011 Occupy Movement when Robert E. Lee Park (now Emancipation Park) in Charlottesville, Virginia, was being occupied by citizens, he played around a firepit until the park was cleared by police, leaving him with his nickname. Music has been a life-affirming spiritual practice for him, dedicated to bending the arc of moral universe toward justice, love, and peace.
