The Quiet Voice of Courage

The Quiet Voice of Courage
Sunday, August 30, 10:30 AM via Zoom

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow,’” says author Mary Anne Radmacher. Worship associates Tara Miller and Susan Keiter will lead an exploration of what courage looks like in our day-to-day lives. There will be music by Crescendo Choir and Renee Witon, a storytelling for all ages with Patricia Polacco’s book, Thank you, Mr. Falker, and a movement meditation. Kevin Alan Mann, Vincent Raines, and Stefan Schneider join us for this live Zoom service.

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.
