Sunday Service, February 21: “Sequoyah and The Talking Leaves: When Language Makes its Way to Paper.”

On this day in 1828, the first issue of The Cherokee Phoenix was printed in Georgia, using both English and the Cherokee printed language that had been developed 7 years earlier by Sequoyah, a Cherokee Silversmith.  Join Diane Wright this morning as we consider what happens when a spoken language becomes a written language.  Our language shapes the way we experience the world.  What would UUism be without the written word?  Come join us as we explore the power of the pen, and what this history means for our inner lives and our communities.  Service Leader:  Orlita Kissane.  Monthly potluck today after service.  Please join us!
