Journey

The Journey of Belonging

Service at 9:15 and 11:00 am

Celebrants, Susan Gross and Martha Shen

Unitarian Universalists affirm the worth and dignity of all people in the first of our seven principles. Living into this, our most fundamental belief, is not as easy as it sounds, either for us as individuals or as a faith community. What would it take for us to grow as a people in our ability to welcome and the worth and dignity of “others”? We will look at our neurobiology as well as our more conscious choices.

It’s All About the Journey

The youth of First Unitarian share their perspectives on the journey through high school and into the rest of their lives. In this service, they anticipate all that life has to offer and the myriad of ways their futures might unfold.

Today we celebrate 142 years of the First Unitarian Church of Des Moines and the bright future ahead.
