UUSD to host online service April 17

The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware will hold an online and in-person service at 10 a.m., Sunday, April 17, with the topic “Welcoming the Mystic Within.” The Rev. Heather Rion Starr said, “On Easter Sunday, I have found, Unitarian Universalists, who all year long identify more as skeptics than as mystics, are a little more receptive to the idea of the mysterious, the ineffable. What is it about the ancient stories, or the nostalgia within our own hearts and life journeys, that opens us up to the unknowable at this sacred time and season?”

Reservations are required for in-person attendees; for details or to access the livestreamed service, go to
