UUSD to meet May 28

The Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware will hold an in-person and livestreamed service at 10 a.m., Sunday, May 28, with the topic War and Pieces. In honor of Memorial Day, UUSD lay leaders Rick Welk and Jean Charles will consider why there is a need for war memorials and how long they have been necessary. “We honor our soldiers and the sacrifice they make for their country. But we have been doing so for many years. Is our future filled with a continued need? Let us look deeper into the reasons for the losses and the countless lives that are affected by a history of human suffering. We strive to live in peace. May we find it together,” said Welk.
