Rev. Dr. David Herndon, Senior Minister. "One Hundred Days of Unitarian Universalism!"

Starting on January 20 and concluding on April 29, here at First Unitarian Church we will organize and promote One Hundred Days of Unitarian Universalism to coincide with the first one hundred days of the new administration in Washington, DC. What will we be doing? How shall we Resist, Persist, and Insist? And how can we provide sanctuary, community, reassurance, hope, and loving compassion for one another?
