Video Service: Faith Over Fear

Caitlin Regan will lead our worship with a message by Phillip Baber entitled “Faith Over Fear.”

In this brief sermon, Phillip shares how the twin pillars of his personal faith—Christianity and Unitarian Universalism—are helping to sustain him through the COVID-19 pandemic.

There will also be a special musical performance by Phillip and Sunnie Baber, with a cover of “I Am Willing” by Holly Near.
