I do. We do. – January 30, 2022 – Rev. Kevin Tarsa

I do. We do.
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
January 30, 2022
Rev. Kevin Tara, with Gail Johnson Vaughan and Cheryl Morris, Worship Associates

Until the current COVID surge, a consultant was scheduled to engage members of the congregation this weekend as part of figuring out next steps regarding UUCM’s facilities. Though that weekend was postponed, we still focus on the promises at the heart of creating community such as this, and at the heart of finding our way forward as a community.
