The clock is ticking on the fate of the Earth as we know it, set in motion by our own doing. Geologists suggest naming this current era “The Anthropocene Period”, or The Age of Humankind. As stewards/partners of creation, how can we ‘save ourselves from our ourselves?’ The Rev. Ben Meyers will lead a service encompassing wit, wisdom, and our Unitarian Universalist principles to explore a path forward. All are worthy, all are welcome. Rev. Ben Meyers is a resident of Oakland, and serves as a Hospice Chaplain and Spiritual Care Provider for Bridge Home Hospice patients and their families in Alameda County. His ministry spans 28 years: half of that time as a parish minister and half as a social justice/community minister. He is the proud father of two sons and loves spending as much time as possible with his 2-year old grandson. His passion is working with faith-based communities throughout the country to accelerate the adoption of clean energy–especially solar–as a moral imperative.

Worship Leader: The  Rev. Benjamin Meyers

Worship Associate: Diana Mecum
