"We are not alone, though sometimes we forget that truth. We are woven into one cloth, one gorgeous blanket, designed for use, for comfort, to sustain and to love…”
—Rev. Dr. Sarah Lenzi
"Woven in a Single Garment of Destiny" is a full-length video worship service exploring and celebrating hallmarks of our Unitarian Universalist theology.
We're all connected: an interdependent whole. Therefore, says Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, "covenant is our religious response to our fundamental interdependence." We make promises about how to be together, and how to be in the world. We also fall short of honoring those promises, inviting us to repair and strengthen the strands of community. The choice to mend broken strands of the web is an act of faithfulness.
The liturgist for this service, Rev. Erika Hewitt, UUA Minister of Worship Arts, coordinated a wide range of worship and music leaders for you to enjoy—including original songs composed just for this service.
