I Can’t Breathe

Alyssa Halliday will lead our service with a message by Rev. Christine Dance, Minister of the UU congregation of Phoenix, entitled “I Can’t Breathe.” 

A worship service centered on our UU response to the recent murder of George Floyd and the deeper issues that underpin this horror. Reverend Christine Dance, Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix, will present a special Ritual of Lamentation and sermon, there will be special original music, and a time to focus on living our Unitarian Universalist values.
