 Rebecca Cureau tells a dramatic story of her involvement in desegregating a passenger train, a story now published in Southern Witness by Gordon Gibson, a UU minister who frequently appeared in our pulpit when he was serving churches in MS. (Copies of Southern Witness are available at the book table.) This fine morning we recognize the children and parents of our Roots and Wings program.  Music for the Roots and Wings children and an offertory from the 1960's Civil Rights Era are featured.

With the 50th anniversary of the march on Selma approaching, Reverend Nathan Ryan will reflect on the progress we’ve made and how far we have yet to go. Are we done? Will we ever be done? Will all be well, and how do we know? The choir and a women's ensemble offer special music.   Please turn your clocks back an hour before retiring Saturday night March 7.

 Sabrina King and Alan Berteau join Steve Crump for the auctioned sermon on the memorable music and superstardom of The Carpenters.  Before CD and play-on-demand digitized music, The Carpenters sang on every radio station in America, with music and lyrics that still make us smile, cry, and move us to contemplate life’s meaning.

 Not frequently told in our church is the story of how, in our formative years, we lost our place of worship in downtown Baton Rouge because we were holding integrated meetings. This is the week during which we recognize a martyr, Viola Liuzzo, a Unitarian Universalist from Detroit, who was murdered in Alabama fifty years ago.  Our destiny calls this congregation forward, as the songwriter says, because “freedom is a constant struggle.” Church member harpist Ginna Paredes is featured musician.

 Palm Sunday in the western world features the doctrines and the rituals that accompany the seasons of Passover and Easter.  But what does the season have to do with Unitarian Universalists?  What are the hidden meanings and texts? The choir offers an anthem by John Rutter.
