Who are our friends? Our companions?
Rev. Jim VanderWeele shares a story of a night when the right of conscience and use of the democratic process were challenged, suborned, and beaten back in his presence. Shocked! Surprised! Forever changed! This message offers a realization that the values UUs cherish are still scorned by many, which makes the support of our values a critical step for all of us. Opens with a chalice lighting “The One Story” by Rachel Naomi Remen. Excerpt from musical interlude: “Bring Him Home” music by Claude-Michel Shonberg; lyrics by Alain Boublil & Herbert Kretzmer: performed by Matthew Triplett. During Jim’s message, you will hear audio from this MSNBC report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek-4BvywpXk&t=9s
