‘Change and Resistance’

Olympic Unitarian Universalist Fellowship welcomes the Rev. Amanda Aikman as guest speaker at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 28. Aikman is a retired Unitarian Universalist minister and playwright who has won more than a dozen national sermon contests.

Her message, “Change and Resistance,” looks at the dance of change and resistance in our lives, from politics to arts to intimate relationships.

OUUF is a congregation embracing “justice, equity, and compassion in human relations” at 1033 N. Barr Road, between Sequim and Port Angeles. Coffee and fellowship follow the service.

Enrichment and play are provided children.
