Love Flows from our hearts to yours…and back again
Speaker: Rev. Ann Keeler Evans
Music: Guest Musicians from UUCSV
We join together with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Susquehanna Valley (UUCSV) for this worship service on “love flows from the rivers to the ocean and from our hearts to yours” and back again.
Following superstorm Sandy, UUCSV and UCSI have been working together to heal some of the brokenness for the survivors of the storm. El Centro del Inmigrante has been active in recovery efforts, identifying some 150 immigrants needing assistance and providing substantial support to those who have very few resources and places to turn.
Along with El Centro del Inmigrante and UUCSV, we will hold a Sandy May Faire for those who have been active in the recovery efforts on Staten Island. Join us for this worship celebration where we celebrate our partnerships and how love flows.

The Unitarian Church of Staten Island is excited to announce the addition of monthly Soulful Sundown gatherings to our offerings.
Soulful Sundowns are not church services per se.
They are forums for participating with a group of incredibly passionate, socially conscious and engaged young adults on Staten Island who invite you to explore and experience relevant issues within the social justice-oriented framework of liberal Unitarian Universalist principles.
This unique and creative event catering to young adults will begin on September 23rd, 2012, and is scheduled to take place one Sunday per month at 5:00 p.m. in the Church Sanctuary.
A diverse range of topics will be presented and experienced from an artistic perspective, with a voice and aesthetic that resonates with younger generations. Topics will include such subjects as permaculture, mental health, transgender equality, feminism, race, food politics, education, classism and immigration.
Guest Artists and Participatory Events
In addition, we are thrilled to feature guest artists from our UU community as well; everyone from visual artists, performance artists, bands, poets, photographers, dancers, filmmakers and dj's. There will be participatory art installations and projects to encourage a sense of immediacy and community, as well as musicians interspersed with the dynamic speakers and panels we host.
This fellowship does not involve sitting reverently and listening to a sermon but participating if one should so choose; roaming, clustering, dancing and interacting. Refreshments will be served.
We look forward to galvanizing the many great young thinkers and activists in Staten Island in this forum and in doing so, inspiring loving, conscious action in the wider Staten Island community.
Here is the creative team of young people at the UCSI who are organizing the monthly Soulful Sundown gatherings.
