“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
This Sunday we will be listening to a sermon from the Rev. Chris Jimmerson which was given at the First UU Church of Austin on January 27, 2019. Join us as we learn more about “Collective Liberation”.
“It’s the individual effort of everybody working together towards a collective goal that causes real, effective change in America and in the world.” – David Hogg
We would love to have you come worship with us.
Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.
During the 10 o’clock hour we will be discussing “Faithful Stubbornness” and the Response in Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry as part of our Life Long Learning.
Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.
Children are welcome. There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.
The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.
The schedule for the current adult religious education class is here.

We aim to have a devotional about the daily word each day.
May your day be filled with light and the coming weeks be filled with introspection and healing. May we all use this time to nurture other spirits as well as our own, so that we are strong enough to help heal the world. May we use this time to connect with each other as we work towards beloved community and collective liberation. Blessed Be. Amen.
