Event Description

One-hundred and fifty years ago, General John C. Fremont was fired for issuing his own Emancipation Proclamation while serving as the general of the western territories. Later, as Senator of the new territory of California, and then first candidate of the anti-slavery Republican Party for the office of President of the United States, Fremont promoted the ideas of Free Soil and Free Men. In partnership with Moonstone Arts, Reverend Nate’s sermon will focus on how principled collective action can create a more just society.

            Note: The service will include a Lesson for All Ages by our Director of Religious Education. At 12:30 pm there will be a free UU & You brunch for those who are interested in learning about the membership process. At 2:00 pm the Chestnut Street Singers will be performing in the sanctuary.
