Take a Stand Against Genocide in Darfur

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Akron joins congregations nationwide, in association with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, to celebrate Justice Sunday.

This year Justice Sunday, will take place on March 25, 2007. Unitarian Universalist congregations in the US, and Unitarian and Universalist people around the world will stand together to end the genocide in Darfur.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Akron is offering two services this year on Justice Sunday:

A Morning service at 10:30 am; where we will explore peace, not as the absence of war, but as a way to cultivate justice and be at peace in and with the world. A special collection benefiting the UUSC-Darfur Fund will take place during this service.

And a Midday Service at 12:30 pm; where special musical guests Tracey Nguma and the Umojah Reggae Band will join us as we stand witness to the people of Darfur, and explore how we can transform our grief into grace even when we see the suffering of so many people around the world.

Join us for this unique opportuanity to change our world.

Thanks for posting this! Here is the link to the UUSC Drumbeat for Darfur website. I hope that our congregation will work to bring an end to the genocide through their prayers, letters to Congress and donations to UUSC.
