Animal Blessing: Rev. Michelle Collins
October 1, 2017
In honor of St. Francis of Assisi, we’ll be having an Animal Blessing Service. This service is a time when we can honor and bless the animals in our lives and reflect on how we can better learn to listen from our companion animals. If you would like to honor or remember an animal in our service that morning, please email their photo, along with their name, to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 27 so that your furry (or feathery or finny or scaly or otherwise) one can be honored in the service. The worship service itself will feature a virtual blessing for our animals, and live animals are invited to UUSD for individual blessings by Rev. Michelle from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Who We Are
We are brave, curious, compassionate thinkers and doers. Diverse in faith, ethnicity, history, and spirituality, we are building a welcoming community that changes lives.
What We Are Doing
Standing for love, justice, and peace, we gather for worship, learning, programs, events, and more.
Sharing Our Stories
Each of us at UUSD has a different story to tell about how we found a spiritual home here. A few of us are life-long UUs but most are not, having come from a variety of other religious backgrounds or from no particular place of faith. Whatever our journey, sharing the stories of the paths we took helps connect us to each other and to the shared journey we are now making.
