The First Unitarian Singers will present “The Immigrant Experience.” Composer John Kramer was inspired to write this work from the words of George Washington in his Letter to an Association of Irish American Immigrants in 1783. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Freedom from oppression, freedom from want, freedom of religion. Welcome to this land of freedom and promise for all.”

Rev. Connie Simon
Cincinnati Festival of Faiths offers Sacred Connections, an opportunity to learn about each other and enjoy fellowship in unique sacred places. It is First Church’s turn on Sunday, May 12 at 10 a.m. We will welcome about 50 guests who want to learn more about Unitarian Universalists. Worship will begin at 10:15 a.m., giving the first 15 minutes to a Q&A between Rev. Connie and our guests. In 1961, Unitarianism and Universalism merged to form Unitarian Universalism, a non-credal faith that draws from many religions and human experience to promote a love-and-justice-based movement that honors the worth and dignity of all. Following worship, we will join together for lunch and dialogue. (All of our guests are invited, and as many First Churchers as will fit in the Ellen Hall Room.)
