Rev. Barnaby reflects on how part of the ending of the pandemic must be working together now on creating the better world we want to inherit.

We’ll revisit Esther Thomas reading Still I Rise accompanied by Margie Bekoff on harp, hear Ethan Spritzer on our piano, and learn from Francois Clemmons about what CVUUS means to him as part of our Pledge Drive. We’ll collect for Abenaki Helping Abenaki
