Gratitude and Mourning: Understanding Thanksgiving as a Day of Sorrow

Sunday, November 20, 2022
10 AM in the Sanctuary or online/phone

Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum 

Unitarian Universalists often wrestle with holidays and traditions that honor the colonizing behavior of our past, and especially can find Thanksgiving to be a difficult holiday. While we continue to share elements of our Thanksgiving service, like the tradition of our junior youth breaking bread, this year’s service will focus more on the history of colonization and the treatment of Indigenous Peoples. We’ll learn more about our Land Acknowledgement and our past efforts and future plans, as well, and be joined by members of the team that created it, Aimee Snyder Ledwell and Mary Evans.

Masks are required in the sanctuary, with the exception of being optional for speakers, soloists, and in the balcony.
