As long as anyone is harassed or ridiculed, we must demand an end to the bullying. As long as anyone is judged because of their gender identification or presentation, we must insist on a higher moral standard. And if, God forbid, anyone is ever again physically harmed or murdered because of his or her gender identity or expression, we must rise up and seek justice.
Peter Morales, President, Unitarian Universalist Assoc. of Congregations

In addition to our personal and individual joys and sorrows, that we make a bit of time for in our services, I'm wondering how we could make words of witness and memory part of our church life - something my heart has longed for ever since coming to UUCA - part of my motivation for coming to a church community. I'm not talking about announcements, or political speech. What one person brings up may be seen differently by others, but we could honor what is in each person's heart.
