On Being Welcoming
Wy’east UU is a “Welcoming Congregation” and our commitment to this program calls on us to put this promise into action. One of the five practices of renewing our pledge to this program is to dedicate worship services that uplift themes of LGBTQ+ / TGQNB* welcome and inclusion. Wy’east members and a special guest will explore the connections between action and environment when it comes to being welcoming.
In addition, we will be holding our annual special collection for our Sustained Partnership with the Q Center. Ian Morton, Executive Director of the Q Center, will give us an update on the Q Center's current work and operations.
*TGQNB stands for Transgender, Genderqueer, and Non-Binary
The special guest at this service was the showing of a short documentary film created by two Franklin High School Seniors named Finn Zelinsky and Avi Israel-Davis. This film was not captured as part of our recording of the sermon, but is available for viewing here: https://youtu.be/AI6jT0HmnGM
