Sunday, December 3 – This Sunday Rev. Larry Farris will be speaking on “A Season of Endings and Beginnings, Expectations and Homecomings” December 3 is the First Sunday of Advent on the Unitarian Universalist Calendar and begins a season of endings and beginnings, of expectations and homecomings, all in service of deepened and authentic humanity. Drawing on biblical texts from Genesis and Luke, Larry Farris will help us engage these topics as an old year draws to a close and a new one begins.
