    "Jiminy Cricket - Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide" - Rev. Lee Marie Sanchez

    10:30 amOnline via Zoom (link shared via email)

    Our 5th Principle states, "We covenant to affirm and promote the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large."  Some may wonder why UU's have enshrined the value of Democracy as an important religious value. When seen in the context of all our beloved seven principles it will be clear why this is so.

    Everyone is welcome!

    BIO - Rev. Lee Marie Sanchez was born and raised in Long Beach, attending schools there all the way through college, at California State College at Long Beach. She learned about Unitarian Universalism at age 15 from a counselor at the Long Beach YMCA. Shortly after, she joined the UU Church of the Larger Fellowship and has been a Member ever since. It is hard for her to believe it has now been 57 years!  She moved to Washington State where she was the Director of Religious Education for a UU church with over 100 children. She also was a Hospital and Hospice Chaplain there for 2 large medical centers. Returning to California more than 15 years ago, to care for her mother, she finished seminary at our UU theological school, Meadville/Lombard in Chicago, in their Modified Residency Program. She has served 3 of our congregations here in Southern California, now as Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Laguna Beach.

    Rev. Lee Marie has preached in over 50 UU congregations and is excited to speak her first time for the Monte Vista Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
