“You’re Needed at the Peace Talks”
Kris Kines, Worship Leader
Eileen Morrison, Accompanist
Mike Ludwick, Guitar and Vocals, Special Music

There’s a dangerous, protracted war being waged, and it’s closer to home than you think. Casualties and collateral damage are extensive. An opportunity has arisen to end the war, and the one person needed at the peace talks is you. Can you persuade all the parties to lay down their burdens and study war no more? This sermon is an invitation for you to do exactly that.

About Our Speaker:

Elizabeth DeCoux spent her career practicing law and then teaching law. She has been a member of BBUUC since 2019. Her sermon, Seeing Animals, received the Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry’s Albert Schweitzer Prize for best sermon by a UU minister or layperson on the topic of our responsibility to animals. Elizabeth serves as BBUUC’s Animal Chaplain.

Special Music by BBUUC Member Mike Ludwick:

“Firepit” Mike Ludwick taught himself to play guitar as a teenager, cutting his teeth on the Beatles and Bob Dylan. Music has been a life-affirming spiritual practice for him, dedicated to bending the arc of the moral universe toward justice, love, and peace. During the 2011 Occupy Movement when Robert E. Lee Park (now Emancipation Park) in Charlottesville, Virginia, was occupied by citizens, he played around a firepit until the park was cleared by police, leaving him with his nickname.
