10:30am-11:30am, KUUF sanctuary, Reverend Bill Graves – Following on the heals of Earth Day, this sermon will start with Peter Mayer’s wonderful song, “Holy Now” and proceed to explore what has been called Unitarian Universalism’s most peculiar and distinctive contribution to the world’s religious agenda: Our Seventh Principle “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are apart”. Grounded on that principle we offer a compelling ethos concerning the use and abuse of our Earth.
Jim Franklin and Matt Jones will perform the song, “Holy Now” as in introduction.
Rev. Bill Graves is a former attorney who went back to school and became ordained as a UU minister in 2010. He has served our congregations in Mount Vernon and Tacoma, and presently is part time minister of the Kittitas Valley UU Congregation in Ellensburg. He resides most of the time on Whidbey Island with his wife, Frances Wood.
