Worship Invitation and Reminder

Worship Invitation and Reminder
The BLUU Ministerial Network’s Summer Online Worship Series, Black Being, will conclude with worship on Sunday, August 19th at 9pm EDT, and we hope Black UUs and UU-adjacent folks from far and wide will join us for the fourth and final installment of the series, Be a Witness! If you haven’t already, join our Facebook group here and/or join our email list by completing the form at http://www.blacklivesuu.com/mailing-list for more information about and access to worship.
Also, if you can’t make it on the 19th, we will resume offering two online worship services a month beginning in September. We will be together each month in explicitly black sacred space on the 1st Thursday at 9pm ET and the 3rd Sunday at 4pm ET via Zoom. So be on the lookout for these announcements!

How to Make Worship Kid-Friendly

Not by making the worship service into a consciously “kid friendly” entertainment, or by shunting the kids off to “Sunday school” during the worship service, but by modeling your services so that families are totally included.

“‘Traditional’ shouldn’t imply ‘old.’ It should include both old and new elements in an expression of faith that is rooted in history, supported by the historic liturgical framework, but always looking forward.”
