General Assembly Closing Worship Service

“Circle ‘Round for Justice ● Healing ● Courage” is the theme for General Assembly 2021. We invite our members and friends to join us for the Sunday morning worship service from the UUA General Assembly on June 27th. Come and join our regular Zoom Fellowship link at 11:30 a.m. for a half-hour of fellowship, then we will view the service together beginning at noon to be part of the largest annual gathering of UUs joining in worship. This powerful, communal worship experience can be viewed with our congregation, or you can stream it on your own through the GA Online Events and on the UUA’s YouTube channel; members of the public are welcome to view the service.

Recognizing the importance of shared ministry and the many innovative approaches to worship created by congregations during the pandemic, UUA President, Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick Gray, selected the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis to serve as worship leaders for this year’s GA Sunday Morning Service.

First Universalist has been a model of shared ministry and what it means to put the work of dismantling white supremacy and building anti-racist, anti-oppressive practices at the center of their ministry. They have been on the front lines in support of the Movement for Black Lives in Minneapolis, bringing spiritual care and moral leadership in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by police and the important uprisings for justice that followed. Children and families are a vital part of their ministry, and they have been using creative approaches to engage all ages in worship during the pandemic. Their leadership exemplifies some of the best practices for the creativity, spiritual depth, and moral leadership that is possible when we embrace the work of shared ministry rooted in love and justice.

Last year more than 10,000 screens tuned in to the watch the Sunday Morning Worship at GA! Please join us as we circle ‘round in care and healing; for liberation and justice; and for love and courage.
