UN Sunday Services at North Shore UU Society of Louisiana, Inc., Lacombe, LA
UN Sunday service 2017
Action Date(s): October 22, 2017
We were honored to have Allison Hess as our guest speaker. She provided a number of suggestions which were included in the Order of Service. They consisted of a selection by Rev. Harrison Kingsley, Minister of the Unitarian Christian Church of Chennai, India for the Chalice Lighting, #1026 “If Every Woman in the World”, #318 “We Would be One, #162 “Gonna Lay Down my Sword and Shield” and “The World is Too Beautiful" by Eric Williams for the Benediction . Allison’s sermon was entitled “Playing a Long Game” and beautifully addressed issues like the Sustainable Development Goals, the disarmament issues of the Convention to Ban Nuclear Weapons and the successful changes to the UN itself through the creation of an Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity as a direct result of advocacy by this office. These were wonderful and enhanced the service beautifully. There was very positive feedback to this service.
