“We are on a journey toward redemption. We have lived a year filled with lamentation… with the strength of generations, the failures of the every day, and the deep down gritty messiness that is the promise of our salvation. There is inherent goodness that exist between and among us. I want to honor the weary, ragged miracle that is our living tradition.” ~Rev. Sofia Betancourt
Our Service Theme this year is inspired by the words of the Reverend Sofia Betancourt in her Address to the Faithful during the Service of the Living Tradition at 2018 GA. WSUU’s Praise Service Team will be exploring themes of Fortitude, Restoration, Accountability, Wholeness in Beloved Community, Redemption, and Grace. We seek to honor the authenticity, all the honest confusion, the anxiety, the reconciliation and the reward that comes when we engage in the justice work our faith calls us to do. Journey with us as we re-claim our joy, and some clear-eyed reflection, on the missing remnants of purpose that make our work of struggle, holy work.
