Ritual = Rehearsal for Revolution

Please join Balaza Scholar, Rev Tet Gallardo, Duck River Band, Joyful Noise, Worship Associate Sarah Watts, and Rev. Jacqueline as we continue to celebrate Black History Month. Rev. Tet, “Martin Luther was most famous for his speech I Had a Dream. But during his speech at the UUA General Assembly in 1966 he said, “There is nothing more tragic than to sleep through a revolution.” It was during this same year that the recognition of black women made a difference in NASA’s history.”  Rev. Tet Gallardo will guide us into how in ritual we can learn to imagine, hope, and gaze into the unknown with new eyes. Our Black History Highlight will reflect on the contributions of Terrance Kelly, Artistic Director for Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. All are invited to come and make a joyful noise in worship and celebration. There will be Children’s Chapel in the Starr King Room and then Spirit Art & Games.


What Can One Church Do?

Join Rev. Sheri Prud’homme and Worship Associate Bill Blakely as they share some of the stories from the history of this congregation. It’s amazing what one church can do! On this first Sunday of Black History month, our stories will include some of the ways our church has connected with Black communities. Trente Morant will highlight Ed Kelly, father of Terrence Kelly, and our church’s role in the founding of the Interfaith Gospel Choir. May the stories of those who have gone before inspire us to live into the fullness of possibility in the months and years ahead.

This is a Time for All Ages Service.
