Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience has been observed annually on November 20 since 1999. This day memorializes transgender individuals who have been victims of violence and hate crimes because of their gender identity. As global day of mourning and activism, we will honor those who we have lost and examine how to best support and love our beloved transgender community.
Many cultures see this time between Fall and Winter to be a time of remembrance. Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, and All Souls Day are just some of the holidays happening at this time. In this service, we will look at these traditions. How do we honor the legacies of our loved ones who are no longer with us? What were some of the beautiful gifts they shared?
What makes a good story stand the test of time? Can what was inspiring to our earliest UU ancestors still give us something to think about? We’ll examine how the parable of The Good Samaritan story from the Gospel of Luke still has relevance in today’s world.
On this Earth Day weekend, we examine some reasons to remain hopeful for our beautiful home planet. Wendy Karn, our incoming intern minister, is the guest speaker.
