Tradition can be one way that we find identity and meaning in a shared history. But tradition is also frequently used as an exclusionary force, resisting change and hindering the expansion of an open and welcoming community of plural voices. This service will explore how a UU sense of a conscious and evolving tradition can allow us to make sense of our lives in community while leaving behind the problems of the past. Music will be presented by Kelley Smith and Chris Sanzo.
