“Swords into Plowshares”

Join us as we rededicate ourselves to peace and offer dissembled guns to be transformed by local artist Billy Sherry into a chalice, a symbol developed during WWII by Unitarians to help Jews and others escape Nazi persecution. The UU chalice quickly became a symbol of service, faith, courage and of a willingness to sacrifice for justice. Sara Bloomfield, Director of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum as well as our state representative, Dylan Fernandes, Nantucket High School students and members of the Jewish & Muslim communities will join us for this celebration of peace, unity and the making of swords into ploughshares.

Rev. Linda Simmons

Music with Barbara Elder and the UU Meeting House Choir
