Toward the Beloved Community of Unitarian Universalism

Sunday Worship is at 10:30am, In-Person & Online.

Rev. KJohn Lewisevin Mann, Worship Leader; Laurie Warren, Worship Associate

Late civil rights activist John Lewis called us to: “Not get lost in a sea of despair and to never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.” How can our new UUA Article II values of Justice, Equity, Transformation, Pluralism, Interdependence, Generosity with Love at the center guide us to widen the circle for LGBTQ, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and other faith refugees with nowhere else left to turn? What does collective liberation mean for us as Unitarian Universalists?

REV KEV (he/him/siyá) was ordained by the First Unitarian Church of Oakland on October 1st, 2023, on the first day of both Filipino American and LGBTQ History Months. He serves as a Chaplain at Sequoia Hospice, as Faculty Advisor at Starr King School for the Ministry, and as Consultant for Partnership with UU Church of the Philippines. Rev Kev founded DRUUMM Bay Area (Diverse Revolutionary UU Multicultural Ministries), whose vision is to cultivate rotating quarterly retreats for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Unitarian Universalists.
