March 12th: “Who’ll Save Us Now?”

On this festive feast day of Purim, it is fitting we talk about salvation.  Purim is a Jewish holiday which commemorates the story told in the book of Esther; a story about salvation in this world, not the hereafter; a story in which God is not named even once.  As contemporary UUs, what does salvation mean for us?  Is salvation even a relevant concept?  Is salvation for the hereafter or the here and now?  Who has the power to save?  Can we save ourselves and each other?  What does it mean to be a savior?  These and other musings will be examined through an anti-racist, anti-oppression (ARAO) lens particularly relevant to today’s social issues. The service will begin at 10:15am
