Please join us for The Power of Our Ripple, led by Lisa Fagerstrom. With so many challenges, struggles, and conflicts in our communities and our world, it can sometimes seem as if we are powerless to find and be a part of constructive solutions. This sermon will use the backdrop of Indigenous Peoples’ Day to reflect on and consider ways to accept, embrace, and enact the “power of our ripple” to live into and live out our UU Principles in our daily lives, as we effect change in ourselves, our communities, and our world.
