“Closer to Fine”

May 31, 2020

Rev. Jackie Clement, FCU member and retired UU minister, preaches! In times of stress or loss, in times like these, we seek equilibrium. We each have our own ways of doing that — through nature, through prayer or music or service or connection with others; through many avenues. But the one thing all of these ways share, is that they help us to make meaning. As we try to move closer to being fine, let us make meaning together.

The women who led the movement inspire us by their courage, commitment, and persistence. In this service, we will hear the voices of the most prominent suffragettes and sing songs of the movement. The children join us in our virtual choir for the prelude and postlude.”
