Standing Up to Hatred: The Legacy of Martha and Waitstill Sharp

Services at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM. On September 20, PBS releases a new Ken Burns film, Defying the Nazis: the Sharps’ War.  It tells the stirring tale of the Rev. Waitstill and Martha Sharp, World War II Unitarians who left the comfort of Wellesley, MA to rescue Jews, dissidents and refugee children in Nazi-occupied Europe.  As we learn their story, we can ask ourselves, “What will we do to keep the Sharp’s legacy alive?”
