Relationships or Beliefs?

This will be Theresa I. Soto’s last sermon as the UUCS intern minister. Theresa will reflect on some of the blessings of this time with the congregation. We will have a chance to consider some of the complexity of creating Beloved Community that respects and engages both theist and non-theist belief systems.
