March 5: Social Justice as Spiritual Practice

Join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as we welcome guest speaker Rev. Greg Chute who brings us his message, “Social Justice as Spiritual Practice.”

We Unitarians and Universalists claim to have a deep commitment to social justice. Many of us also claim to be searching for something we often call “spiritual,” but aren’t sure what that means. Perhaps we can find spirituality in our social action and community involvement. Our music will be performed by Abigail Evans, viola, and Stirling Bowlick, saxophone.

Children’s Religious Education

This Sunday we welcome the children to classroom 1 after the Story For All Ages. Our bluebirds are hungry, so this Sunday our kids will be feeding them their favorite food, mealworms (yum!) while they also enjoy a nature walk and look for signs of spring. Thanks to everyone who is caring for the seedlings that the children planted. Let us know if you have any sprouts. We hope to have many Milkweed and other plants to put in the new Butterfly Garden this coming Earth Day, April 22.

Adult Religious Education

Come early! Our Adult Religious Education group meets every Sunday at 9:15 am in the MacArtor Library. This Sunday ARE will host a local UU social justice leader. Donna Shand will share her experience coordinating the Women’s March in Newark with 1,300 participants and hosting other recent public events at UUFN. Donna is also becoming Co-Chair of the Unitarian Universalist Delaware Advocacy Network (UUDAN) which will be enrolling Mill Creek members this Sunday. Join us for an inspiring and engaging discussion of UU social justice in this time of exploding grass roots activism.

​It’s going to be another great day at Mill Creek!​​
