Valentines Day 2016 service billion

Justice is What Love Looks Like in Public

We are so happy to announce that one of our first collaborative projects has been to help co-create this event with the First Universalist Church of Pittsfield, Maine.  Merging our UU Standing on the Side of Love – Thirty Days of Love with the One Billion Rising Campaign, we present this heart-opening service:

Valentines Day 2016 service billion

At the 2015 Unitarian Universalist General Assembly, Dr. Cornell West reminded us to

“Never forget that Justice is what Love looks like in public.”

Valentine’s Day may often seem like it’s all about expensive flowers and candies, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

This year join us as we reimagine the love holiday as a day of social justice and celebration that inspires us to make the world a better place.

Join us for Standing on the Side of Love: The Month of Love

We will have two guests with us On February 14th
