Prismatic Chaos Arrow 200August 16: The Great Transition Part Two 
Rev. Marsh Agobert (he/him), Worship Leader
We, at BFUU, have an open conversation regarding the current “great revealing.”* There are areas of interest for most everyone. How the two most recent entries (the surge in Black Lives Matter and the viral pandemic) will come to impact our movement forward in time has yet to be determined. Yet we have been graced with a momentary pause to consider such questions. Where do we want to come out on the other side of this moment, and how can we make the most of it? What role can our small community play in this event? Part two: Given we don’t need to know how to do something before setting out to create or do it, what can we do to get where we want to be?
*Apocalypse:  Greek apokálypsis revelation, equivalent to apokalýp(tein) to uncover, reveal.
