I am always thankful to join in Martin Luther King Day celebrations. The interfaith service at UUCA lifted my heart and soul—but later on, I felt deeply troubled.
I want to voice my doubts, along with my gratitude and joy. A few others may share these emotions but feel as I wrongly did, profoundly alone.
Most moving, for me, were our opening hymn, “Lift Every Voice,” and the words of Imam Abdul-Malik, Rev. Janet Parker, Rabbi Lia Bass, and Rev. Mark…Continue

My mom Ilse M. Williams passed away after a 7-month illness at Woodbine Rehabilitation Facility in Alexandria on Monday, January 9th at 11:09 am. Two birthdays fell on Monday, January 9th.

This has been a big transition for me and my brother. We loved our mom a great deal. There were lots of good times with…Continue

How will we join our justice work across ministries and programs in 2012-2013? What funding will be needed to support our efforts? All interested members and friends are urged to attend as we build on the work done at the Nov. 12…Continue
I believe that we are poorly served by Rev. Jonassonon’s guidance in replacing Michael (Arlingtarian, January 2012). It would be detrimental to the vitality and growth of our congregation if we followed his advice –as apparently there are not any UU denominational rules of ministerial succession to which we are bound.
I greatly appreciate Michael McGee’s tenure and leadership among us. Indeed in my 36 years of UUCA membership I do not believe that the UUCA has ever been…Continue
