Co Moderator: Please welcome the Rev. Alicia Forde, the Professional Development Director in Ministries and Faith Development for the Legacy Society Memoriam. Thank you.
Alicia Forde: This is our time to honor some of the generous Unitarian Universalists who have died this year.
Their gifts of time, talent, and treasure have profoundly transformed their congregations and our Unitarian Universalist community. Their dedication to love and justice will continue to enrich the lives they touched. As we remember these friends who loved our faith with all their hearts and whose hopes for the future now rest with us, may we renew our own commitment to this faith we share, a faith that connects us to generations gone and generations to come.
We celebrate the many lives, friendships, and memories that have been lifted up here today and we honor those who died with our own commitment answer the call of Unitarian Universalism and build the Beloved Community in our faith and in our world.
