"With U" - What Does That Mean?
Likely, it means just what you think it means. But here are a few thoughts, just in case...
It's hard to feel connected these days. It's easy to feel disconnected for any number of good reasons. And yet...
... beneath it all, we are deeply connected. Now, and always. This is our message, a message for our time. That we come from that depth. That we strive to live from that kind of deep unity and deep equality. That we are stronger together. Put simply, and powerfully: we are with you.
We hope you will wear these shirts when you want to say to someone "I'm with you." Like helping someone through a tough time. Or standing up for someone.
And... we hope you will wear these shirts when you yourself need a reminder of those who are with you. UUSGS embodies a durable ministry of transformative love through the ages. We can all likely use a reminder these days that others are out there. Others who will care for us. Others who will pray for us and show up for us. Others who are with us.

"We see you. We love you. We're with you."
