Together We Rise – April 10, 2022 – Rev. Kevin Tarsa

Together We Rise
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
April 10, 2022
Rev. Kevin Tarsa, with Cheryl Morris and Gail Johnson Vaughan, Worship Associates 

There’s no better way to awaken than to the aroma of freshly baked bread – warm and delicious with lots of the very best ingredients combined to bring out the best in each. UUCM is like that too. Join us this Sunday to consider how each of us brings our unique selves as a critical ingredient to everything we create together.
