The election results are in (maybe) and regardless of who will assume the Presidency on January 20, 2021, Unitarian Universalists are still called to honor our Principles and embody the sources of our living traditions. So what do we do now?  Rev. Fred L Hammond will explore this question.  

Rev. Fred L Hammond currently serves the Manatee UU Fellowship in Bradenton, FL as Developmental Minister.  CUUB fondly welcomes Rev. Hammond back for this Sunday service because among his many accomplishments, he served as Student Minister for CUUB in 2006/07 during his final year at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago.​
