We came to CUUB for varied reasons – Love, Support, Community, Action, to name a few.  These are reasons why we came to and what we take from CUUB.  Now that we are here, what are our responsibilities to this, our Beloved Community?  One of our founders, Liz Firek is looking at Beloved Community - what it is, how it happens, how we can help it thrive - this Sunday.
