On September 20th PBS will air the new Ken Burns documentary film, Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War. The  film describes Unitarians Martha and Waitstill Sharp who left their two children and their position at the Wellesley Hills Unitarian Church to travel to Prague, Czechoslovakia to help administer an aid program in cooperation with the Unitarian Church of Prague to save Jews and other refugees from the invading Nazis.

Rev. Carmen Emerson will share her insights into their story.

Greater Nashville UU is working on a community screening of the film. Sign up for our weekly email for more information!

This service will also feature a special meditation and special music by the choir for our Water Communion. Please remember to bring water from your summer travels or a place special to you.
