Titled, “La Red” meaning, “The Network,” this Spirit Experience aims to speak to the incredible diversity and resilient spirit evident in the Latino/a/x community. Prayer will be offered by our sanctuary guest, Sra. Rosa Gutierrez Lopez and passionate poetry and spiritual reflections will be offered in Spanish and English by Cedar Lane’s ministers and members. Special dance team, “Estrellitas De Sorto,” meaning “Mr. Sorto’s Little Stars,” a nationally acclaimed dance team made up of 8-year olds from Washington DC, will perform a Salsa dance. Jazz team, “Laissez Foure” will offer music from around Central and South America.
We will share our offertory plate 50/50 with Congregation Action Network.
The “La Red Spirit Experience” is family-friendly and open to all. The event will take place on Sunday, September 15, at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church, 9601 Cedar Lane, Bethesda, MD, at both 9 and 11 am. Each service will be followed by an Arepa party catered by La Tita Bakery.
