Sermon: “A Sanctuary for Families”
May 12, 2019
Rev. Dr. Kristen Harper & Rev. Abhi Janamanchi

Families are on an unsustainable treadmill, inundated with perfection and technology. How have we become more and more disconnected to one another and more connected to our machines? When do we take the time to stop, unplug and just enjoy being with one another; sharing intimate, connecting moments? How can we Unitarian Universalists be a sanctuary from the demands of the world? The service will also feature a child dedication ceremony.
