Selma Sunday is March 8th!
March 7th is the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the brutal attack on civil rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. Two weeks later, thousands of people arrived from all over the country and marched from Selma to Montgomery; that August, Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, ending discrimination in access to voting. This coming week, thousands of people are expected in Alabama for the reenactment of that march.
Next Sunday morning, here at Arlington Street, we will be honoring Selma Sunday. Let's be together to celebrate this watershed moment in Civil Rights history and our long walk to freedom!

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.
Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.
During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.
Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
Join us for worship this Sunday! The Sermon by Rev. Kim K. Crawford Harvie is "The Power of Imagination."
All are welcome!

Welcome to Arlington Street Church, gathered in love and service for justice and peace. We're so glad you found us! Unitarian Universalists believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason are the final authorities in religion. Instead of subscribing to a single religious creed or doctrine, we keep an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places, and we honor a diversity of answers. Join us! All are welcome!
