This Congregation, this community means so much. The reasons I keep coming to UU Marin: the fantastic people, the wonderful music, the strong social justice action, and the spiritual connection that makes this church my home. I am so fortunate to have many supportive friends here. Here, I can be me and people see me for who I am and value me, as we all try to value each other.
I love my UU congregation. The Nine o’clock Circle is always a joy. I learn more about the participants and hear about the life experiences that make them the people they are today! We create our own topics, rotate leaders and have periods of quiet to think about the questions raised. It’s very stimulating and makes me feel thankful that I belong to this community.
