Be An ALLY!
March 3, 2013
Be An ALLY! @ 9:30am & 11:15am DUUC LGBTQ Welcoming CongregationIn 1999 DUUC achieved "Welcoming Congregation" status within the UUA; completing 2 years of study, self-assessment and a congregational vote on our commitment to making DUUC a safe spiritual haven for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning) people. Recently, under the assistance of last year's ministerial intern, Charlotte Lehmann, DUUC members were invited to learn about, reflect and act on our Welcoming Congregation status. The newly formed group will lead the service, inviting the congregation to renew our commitment for LGBTQ equality; to be an ALLY at home, school, church and at work. An ALLY can be someone who is supportive and accepting or someone who actively advocates for equal rights and fair treatment. This service is dedicated to honoring DUUC's commitment and will include thoughts, stories, guided imagery and music to celebrate our LGBTQ friends and family.
