The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: "Mistakes Were Made: A Post-Valentine's Day Spectacular"

Celebrate the Verdugo HUUT's first anniversary with this delightful evening of music, comedy, and surprises featuring performers from around L.A. and the world. This month's theme tackles unrealistic expectations, unexpected consequences, unverifiable results, and hastily re-wrapped Christmas chocolate. Not only that, but guests can indulge in L.A.'s best urn-dispensed coffee as well as participate in our famous intermission contest for a fabulous prize.

$10/Show begins at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: When's Black Future Month Anyway?: Black Liberation & Unitarian Universalism

Rev. KC Slack

Borrowing a title reference from N.K. Jemson's "How Long 'Til Black Future Month?", the second service in our spring series on Unitarian Universalist history and theology will discuss the stories of Black Unitarian Universalists and consider movements towards racial justice and liberation in our collective history.

10:30 a.m.

Sunday Service: Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Words, Deeds

Unitarian Universalism's Seven Principles espouse a belief and a will toward recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every person. But our membership, while well-meaning, is not diverse. Today we read short works by black authors--activists, essayists, entertainers, philosophers--and speak their words. We can't solve our diversity gap this way, but we acknowledge we have one.

10:30 a.m.
