He wants to continue his Ministry and serve in North America, which will require some further training. Help us ensure that his Ministry continues to grow and thrive! Continue reading

Normativity: A New LGBTQ+ Musical

Normativity, by UU young adult Jaime Jarrett, is a new musical about LGBTQ+ representation and the gay community premiering at NYMF this summer. Normativity confronts the lack of positive LGBTQ+ representation and the negative impact that has on LGBTQ+ youth who have grown up seeing gay characters continually killed on television, in movies, and on stage. Our goal is to highlight this issue, also known as “Burying Your Gays,” while serving as the representation the LGBTQ+ community so lacks. Continue reading

West Shore Cleveland Needs a New Sign

West Shore Unitarian Universalist church sits on a busy street in Rocky River. Our main “draw” is from people who drive by the church and are curious about it. Our current sign is parallel to the street, which means, no one can read it! It’s deteriorating, difficult to read and has to be changed by hand. The church needs a new sign that is perpendicular to the road with messages that reflect the vitality of the people inside and the importance of our faith to the wider world. Continue reading
