UUVerdugo Movie Night: Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 11/9"
Presented with the Canada Crescenta Democratic Club
“How much longer will we have a democracy (or if we even still do)? 'Fahrenheit 11/9' is ultimately Moore’s best film in years because its message is really simple and nonpartisan: get mad about something and do something about it.”

Sunday Service: My Prophet Proclaims My People, A Body.
Guest Speaker: Naia Al-Anbar

Activist Naia Al-Anbar, who helped get supplies and donations from this congregation to particularly vulnerable LGBT refugees at the boarder this past fall, will discuss the influence of Islam as a driving force to her organizing work, and how her particular upbringing as a Bedouin shaped that as well.

Sunday Service: Love Is Watching Someone Die
Minister: Rev. KC Slack

On this Easter Sunday, Rev. KC returns to their love of Mary, Mother of God, for what in a Christian church would likely be a Good Friday service. Join us as we wonder at what we might learn from the Easter story (even if we don't believe it) and consider the role of coping with death in the story and in our lives.

10:30 a.m.

Sunday Service: To Boldly Go
Guest Speaker: Amy Starbin

"Star Trek" has always been a thoughtful sci-fi franchise, from the original series' civil rights allegories to the New Agey musings of "The Next Generation" and beyond. Though Gene Roddenberry considered himself an atheist, the show's open-minded humanist worldview overlaps nicely with the seeking spirit of Unitarian Universalism. Join self-avowed Trekkie Amy Starbin on a brief exploration of how the Seven Principles "interface" with the ethics of Trek.  
10:30 a.m.
