Sunday, May 30th Remembering Rev. Julie Taylor
It is Memorial Day weekend, a time set aside to remember. Historically, Memorial Day (originally Decoration Day) was created to honor and remember those who have died in service to our country. This morning we will remember sacrifices for our nation from a UU perspective. Joe Gillotti will lead our brief annual honoring of Memorial Day following the service.
Rev. Julie Taylor is a Unitarian Universalist community minister specializing in critical incident response, community crisis and spiritual care. Rev.

Agitating, preaching and working towards dismantling systems of white supremacy are key in Rev. Julie’s theology and work.
