Living a Theology of Disruption

Living a Theology of Disruption
September 6, 10:30 AM

The only way to liberation for all our people is to embody a transformational Unitarian Universalism–that is, to be willing to interrupt the usual course of things and be open to the changes that building a new way may bring to your heart, body, mind, and spirit. Join us as we welcome Rev. Mykal Slack, Community Minister for Worship and Spiritual Care for Black Lives of UU, to our virtual pulpit and reflect together on living a theology of disruption. Rev. Theresa Soto and Stefan Schneider also are on the worship team this Sunday.

You will need a Zoom link to join and can request it by sending an email to with SUNDAY WORSHIP ZOOM in the subject line. A recording of the worship service will be made and posted on First Unitarian Church of Oakland’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page. If you want to talk about being recorded, please reach out to Pastor Theresa.

A time to share what you’re thinking of with care, embracing meditation will be part of the live Zoom worship at 10:30 AM (see above). If you are unable to join worship but would like to include names or words, please feel free to email Pastor Theresa or text them at 510-473-7686 before 7 PM Saturday, with EMBRACING MEDITATION in the subject line.
