WES is a humanistic congregation that affirms the worth of every person. Our Sunday Platform Service is the heart of our community life. This is where we gather to reflect, to share companionship, and to refresh and renew our commitment to creating a more ethical world. We warmly welcome visitors to join us, participate in our activities, and get to know our community. Here's what to expect on Sunday mornings...
WES members will participate with Unitarian Universalists on a Day of Action this Thursday. Participants may choose to engage in civil disobedience at the White House. If you would like more information or wish to participate, contact Amanda Poppei.
WES Members in the News
Three active WES members have been in the news this week, for their extraordinary contributions to the community. Loretta Neumann was instrumental in organizing the events commemorating the Civil War battle at Fort Stevens, which received great press coverage, including the cover story of the Washington Post Weekend section. Loretta was a featured guest on the Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU. Loretta Neumann, photo by Barry Galef
Patti Absher and Judith Johnson are co-chairing a committee that is organizing an Immigration Film Fest on Oct. 24-26. Along with WES, the festival committee ismade up of members of several local Unitarian churches. The festival got a great plug in the July 20 Washington Post. "What they lacked in film-industry savvy, they more than made up for in passion and commitment," the article notes.
