May 6, 2012
On Sunday, May 6th we will have only one service at 11:00 am. Join us again in the afternoon for our Spring Auction and annual Canvass Dinner.
This Sunday at OCUUC will be a very special service honoring the holiday of Cinco de Mayo. We Unitarian Universalists speak of ‘celebrating our diversity’ but too rarely practice honoring the actual diversity of our culture, history and community. Look around you on a Sunday morning. Does this really look like a diverse group of people to you? This Sunday we hope to bring a bit of reality to our often claimed love of diversity. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated throughout the United States and the world. The story behind the holiday has been lost to many; it is one of the too rarely told yet important to know aspects of our history. Join us to remember the events that inspired this Mexican celebration of self-determination and freedom. We will revisit the deeper meaning of Cinco de Mayo in a service of fun and remembrance. A number of church members will help me in honoring this special holiday. I look forward to seeing you Sunday.
We are in great need of a projector for this Sunday’s canvass festivities. If you have one we may borrow please let the church office know immediately.
