Unitarian Universalists have much to think about as Easter approaches. What do we believe about death, birth, rebirth and all the rest? How might we be reborn in our own lifetimes? How might we die to parts of our stories, which are no longer helpful or healthful? We will reflect on these questions and many more. You are invited to join an informal chat on Tuesday, April 16, between 10 a.m. and noon. Enjoy coffee, muffins and a laid-back chance to meet the minister and whatever members of the congregation happen to drop by.
