Pastoral Video Message from Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray

As the Unitarian Universalist church year begins, the gathering of our communities creates energy. There is power in our congregations to change lives—to save lives, to bring hope and offer deep care and an open heart.

I know we live in volatile times and I hold each one of you, and the Unitarian Universalist faith movement as a whole, in my daily prayers. I hope we can find the sustenance we need in one another to continue to show up and live our faith out loud.

Please share this video in your congregation and on social media. May it be a source of inspiration that keeps us from getting lost in all that is wrong with this world. May this church year be a time for us to care for our community and in doing so, to remind ourselves of the liberation that our Universalist theology tells us is meant for everyone.

Share the Video

May you be held in peace and may you show up in more love for yourselves, for one another and for our world in this time.

Yours in love,

Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray
