The eve of a New Year presents opportunity, uncertainty and wishful thinking. In this time, our hopes for the year ahead are both distinctly achievable and infinitely elusive. Yet, how we manage to move through this tension, mindful that we might not have achieved all of our goals in the past year, is a bit messy. Gather on this final Sunday in 2018 as we explore the mystery of why we dare to hope when all signs tell us not to bother.

We are excited to welcome back to our pulpit Gregory C. Carrow-Boyd, a religious educator and seminarian who studies at Claremont School of Theology.

He enjoys original content from online streaming services and quality time with his loved ones and accomplices in justice. Greg also works as the Coordinator for More Than Sex-Ed, a Greater LA-based sexuality education collective that brings the UUA- and United Church of Christ comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, Our Whole Lives, to schools, home school groups and the greater community.
