June 11, 2023: "Always There is Light, Somewhere" With The Rev. Dr. Nancy Jay Crumbine

As we celebrated the diversity of flowers last week in so many Unitarian Universalist congregations across the globe, we held up the creator of that ritual, the Rev. Dr. Norbert Capek, Unitarian minister, who died resisting the Nazis in his beloved Czechoslovakia. But so much remains to be said about this man, his accomplished wife, Maja, and the plight of their beloved and abandoned country. We will examine details of his life and thought, with particular reference to his resistance to fascism and the striking contrasts between the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1939 and the invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

The service will also include Nancy’s favorite June poems!

Our Affirmation:
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve the need of all beings,
To the end that all souls shall
Grow into harmony with the Divine
Thus do we covenant with each other
And with the source of our being
