“Up from the Abyss”
By Rev. Shari Woodbury
The pandemic years have brought an uptick of depression and desolation. How does one find their way up from an abyss of emotion, or out of a dark night of the soul? What blessings might lie on the other side? This service offers encouragement for those who need support to get through it. Pianist J. Gawf and cellist Greg Clinton from the Omaha Symphony offer special music.
Land Acknowledgment: We acknowledge and honor that where we meet for worship as the First Unitarian Church of Omaha is the land of the Omaha / Oto Nations. And that Indigenous people in the greater community have become marginalized and made invisible.
May we recognize their presence among us and work with them to resolve the issues of poverty, displaced children and Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, the MMIW.
