All Human, All Equal

This Sunday’s sermon honors the day that the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is observed every year on the 10th of December. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document, and is the most translated document in the world today. As we endure these current times of tumult, and arguably the worst assault on human dignity in recent history, we will reaffirm our belief in and our commitment to the fact that we are “All Human, All Equal.”

“Love is not concerned with whom you pray,

“Or where you slept, the night you ran away from home.

“Love is concerned, that the beating of your heart, should kill no one.”

Alice Walker




This in-person service was held in the sanctuary at the JCSVV, located at 100 Meadowlark Drive, and featured live singing by our musician Susannah Martin.


Based on recommendations from our Covid Safety Response Team, the Board agreed to ease the requirement for wearing masks during our in-person services, beginning last month. This also applies to making announcements and expressing Joys and Concerns from our community microphone. You may read their complete report here, Thank you to everyone for being aware of the ongoing risks and for doing everything possible to protect yourself and others.


Previously-recorded services from September 2020 through April 2022, as well as more recent services from Fall 2022, continue to be available for viewing on our YouTube channel and may be easily accessed from the posting for that week’s service.
