White Supremacy & UU?

On February 4, 2018, Allegheny’s Get Woke/Stay Woke and the Worship Ministry answered the call from the Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism Organizing Collective (BLUU) to create a worship experience centering the voices of Unitarian Universalists of color from across the denomination. Grateful to be part of a church that has been doing a lot of good things for years that BLUU has challenged Unitarian Universalists to do, like lifting voices of people of color in worship and actively engaging with local organizations that are run by people of color; we still remain vigilant to recognize, address, and heal from remnants of the legacy of White Supremacy that continue to live within the culture and structures of even this Beloved Community of spirit and engaged compassion.

Wintry Weather Adisory: We’ll be OPEN!

  With wintry weather here again a reminder that regardless of weather we gather each Sunday for a 10:30am worship service. That means if you can get here, we’ll be here! If the weather is severe enough that speakers, worship hosts, musicians, etc can’t make it, then we may all need to be flexible and the service format may be a little different. Maybe an intimate fireside gathering in the Emerson Room. But we’ll strive to get the sidewalks and steps cleared and to offer a meaningful spiritual experience for anyone who does attend. Your safety is the most important...
