“It Takes a Village: Adoption as a Life Practice”

Rev. Lydia Ferrante-Roseberry, preaching; Sheila Brown, Worship Associate

Many people pass through our lives, but some people show up in important ways and important times. Explore the many ways we ‘adopt’ people in our lives (including, but not limited to, legal adoption). This is our annual “Tell the Preacher what to Preach” sermon.

  • This Week’s Half Plate offering: Boulder County CROP Hunger Walk. CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events that bring people together in common mission: to help hungry people at home and around the world. The steps we take (and funds we raise) make a real impact. Our Fellowship has participated in this walk for 18 years and have raised a significant amount of the overall funds for the walk every year. Of the funds we raise, 24% go toward Community Food Share of Boulder, 1% towards Bread for the World and 75% will go to our own Unitarian Universalist Service COmmittee (UUSC). Our slogan, “We Walk Because They Walk” shows that we walk in solidarity with people in the developing world who struggle to find the basic necessities – food, water, medical assistance, education and the like. You can help ensure that these individuals will receive the sustenance they need to live healthier, happier lives. Thank you for donating generously to support the hungry of the world! Nominator: Dianne Ladd, BVUUF Crop Hunger Walk Task Force Leader
