Come Worship with the UUs!
The new realities are one-in-five Black Americans (21%) are not affiliated with any religion and, instead , identify as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular,” and this phenomenon is increasing generation by generation as we move farther away from traditional communities and seek out new ways to be in the world. Join us for a lively conversation with Muslims, Christians, UUs and more as we look to a new day with all of the people of the world sharing spiritual time together.
