Skin in the Game I: Moncure Daniel Conway and First Church
In our 187 year history we have benefited from the service of many talented and wonderful ministers. None of these beloved leaders, however, were more colorful, controversial, or loved than Moncure Daniel Conway, who served our church from 1856 to 1862. Come on April 30 to learn more about how this Radical Abolitionist and Antiracist Warrior changed our church in ways that still reverberate today. This is the first of a two-part sermon series. The second sermon is titled “Skin in the Game II: Peter Humphries Clark and First Church”, which will examine the complex relationship between Cincinnati, our church, and America’s first Black Socialist, Peter Clark, who was a member of our church from 1857 to 1887.

Reflections on White Supremacy
We will be joining many other Unitarian Universalist congregations (270 and growing). We will shift from regularly scheduled Sunday morning worship to participate in an examination of racism and white supremacy within our faith communities - including hiring practices, power brokers and cultural habits - for the ways racism, sexism and white supremacy live.

What Has Caregiving Taught Me?
Mother’s Day is not just for Mothers. Caregivers provide help and support to children, to adults in need, and, in fact, anyone who is having a really bad day. Through this caring, we can learn from those we care for – and find hidden truths about life, and about ourselves. Come hear what Jeff, Faith, and June have learned.
