Show the Love Week
First Untarian Church of St. Louis
Prayers & Reflections for Democracy & Freedom
Friday, January 20th – Potluck & Guided Discussion 6:00pm/Vesper Service 7:30pm
As are many Unitarian Universalist congregations, First Unitarian Church of St. Louis will have a week of Show the Love starting with our Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King service on Sunday, January 15. After the service (11:30) we will have a presentation by the non-profit civil rights law firm, ArchCity Defenders.
During the week after the MLK service, readings related to democracy, justice, equity and compassion will be provided (you can receive these readings in a daily email, access them on the church website, pick up a hard copy on MLK Sunday or request a copy be sent to you). On Friday evening January 20th we will gather for a special evening service – Prayers and Reflections on Democracy & Freedom in a Multi-Cultural World. The evening will begin with a potluck and guided discussion (6:00pm – Gather; 6:30 – Dinner and Conversation; 7:30 – Service in the Chapel). This week of reflection and commitment is being planned and presented by Rev. Gary James, Lynn Hunt (Religious Educator) and members of the Toward Justice Anti-Racism group. We hope everyone can participate in all or some of this week as we explore what it means to be a liberally religious citizen in today’s world.
All events free and open to the public.

It has always been the role of the church to broaden horizons, to challenge the status quo, and to question and break mores if necessary.
