Mud CommUUion Sunday

We shared about a) a time in your life when you felt really stuck or b) a time in your life when it became clear something good had come out of time when you were stuck or c) what about life today leaves you feeling most bogged down/stuck. We embraced Spring’s most reliable and perfect symbol of challenging transitions. CVUUS members were invited to join us immediately following worship via our Zoom Coffee Hour link for a special brief congregational meeting.
