Rev Jonalu Johnstone presents this service.  This Easter morning, we retell some of the stories of and about Jesus, casting him not as savior, but as liberator.  Jesus endorsed new family structures, praised outcasts and foreigners, and invited little children to come to him. Killed because he challenged structures of power, his life and work refused to die.  If you have favorite stories or quotations of Jesus, please share them now with Jonalu, at revjonalu@uufm.net, or share during the virtual service.  Rob Morrison, at william.robert.morrison@gmail.com, convenes.

Rev Jonalu Johnstone reflects, “UU’s chafe at the idea of surrender.  We’re such activists and can-do folks.  Which is good.  Except when it isn’t.  There are times when we are freed by letting go and giving into the circumstances in which we find ourselves.  ‘Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,’ wrote Kris Kristofferson.  How might the idea of surrender help us find freedom?”  Our convener is Chris Bailey at meadbailey@gmail.com.
