Join Rev. Shay as she hosts the annual Side With Love Sunday – a special worship service put together by religious professionals from all over the country.  Rev. Shay will be live, as always, to share in our traditional practices of worship, and together we will watch the videos prepared for this Sunday.

Thirty Days of Love is the UU Side with Love Campaign’s annual celebration that runs approximately from Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January through Valentine’s Day in February, ending with a special worship service on the Sunday closest to Valentine’s Day.  It is an opportunity to lift up the ways Unitarian Universalists and many of our partner organizations are building and organizing by taking bold, courageous action for intersectional racial justice.

In 2021, the annual 30 Days of Love celebration centers 4 themes from a Widening the Circle of Concern, a report from the Commission on Institutional Change, a UUA Board-commissioned group charged with researching, reporting, and making recommendations for transforming white supremacy and other oppressions in the institutional history and practices of the UUA and its 1,000+ congregations and covenanted communities. This Side With Love Sunday worship service lifts up those themes: Living our values, Hospitality & inclusion, Educating for Liberation, and Restoration and Reparations. What if to “side with love” meant making bold, faith-full choices? What if it were even a little bit scary? This worship service brings together worship leaders and musicians from across the country to offer hopeful, moving, challenging reminders about what we, as Unitarian Universalists, are called to do, and BE, in the world.
