Online worship through zoom

Westside UU Racial Justice Change Team

Looking deeply into our own lives shows us that we do not have a single life story, but multiple, interwoven stories and intersecting identities. This service explores I am From poetry as a pathway to the self-awareness that is essential to racial justice work. Members of the Westside UU Racial Justice Change Team will share their own experience of looking within to find our purpose in dismantling white supremacy culture. Come prepared to start your own process of self-reflection through poetry.

Summer Worship Collaborative
In the months of July and August we will be worshipping virtually with three other congregations: Northlake UU of Kirkland, Westside UU of West Seattle, and Cedars UU of Bainbridge. This worship collaborative is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between our congregations and find new and creative ways to worship. Each week there will be leadership from the different congregations using a shared order of service created for our summer worship together. We will also be alternating between social hour with all the congregations one week, and social hour with just Saltwater folks the next Sunday.
