Billie Holiday as Spiritual Guide
Rev. Don Rollins

In light of the growing prejudice being aimed at American's religous and racial minorities, Rev. Don has elected to reschedule his service on UU Humanism until next month. This week's service will be a celebration of the troubled life and musical legacy of Billie Holiday.
