“Grief Dares Us To Love Once More”

During the last three years, we have all experienced collective losses and grief and many of us have experienced personal losses. It can be tempting to shut down when we feel such pain, but grief is the other side of love. It is the risk we take when we love and if we let it, grief can help us love even greater. Join us for a service focused on how to let grief help us grow and love more boldly.

Heather Vickery (she/her) is an aspirant to UU Ministry and a certificate student at the Starr King School for the Ministry while working full time for our Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. She serves as the Coordinator for Congregational Activism and in that role works with congregations and state action networks that want to do their justice work more faithfully and effectively. 

Outside of her paid work, Heather is the co-coordinator for the Beyond Bond & Legal Defense Fund and a core team member of the wider Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network. She enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with her 2-year-old rescue pup Nova.
