Rewriting Covenant

In-Person + Online: 10:30am MST
Zoom: 853 4244 5930

Led by: Rev Sky Williams-Tao
Worship Associate: Jon Palumbo
Music: Nicole Pesce

 In 1894, Unitarian minister Rev. James Vila Blake wrote a covenant that became the backbone of the one said during each of UUCP’s worship services. A few years ago, Rev. Sky Williams-Tao rewrote this covenant. Why would they do that? How did they do it? Come to hear about the rewriting journey, and for lots of UU lore.
