Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It celebrated the usefulness of adversity in reacquainting us with the uplifting lessons to be learned from Nature. But how do UU’s address a future where our home planet is increasingly likely to become horrifically hostile at times? Our choir sang Justice and Joy by Amanda Udis-Kessler. Followed by our Congregation Conversation on the upcoming UUA General Assembly.
