This Sunday’s Virtual Service – As Tranquil Streams that Meet and Merge

May 16 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister

The Unitarian Universalist Association celebrated its sixtieth anniversary this week. On May 12, 1961 the Unitarians and Universalists merged after a long, flirtatious courtship that some say lasted as long as 100 years. This service will explore what each of these traditions brings to Unitarian Universalism and how our tradition has evolved over time.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – “It’s May!”

May 2 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker speaking 

In the Earth-centered, Gaelic traditions Beltane, traditionally celebrated May 1st, marking the half-way point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. In other words, it’s the height of spring and halfway to summer. The greening of the Earth has begun in earnest, punctuated by colorful wildflowers, daffodils and tulips. This service will celebrate the life-force that connects us to all that is. It will also include some time for contemplating the place of work in our lives as we honor International Worker’s Day.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – “Bound by Covenant”

April 11 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Carol Strecker, Interim Minister

Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal faith, not a creedal faith. We don’t tell people what to believe. We invite people to enter into a process; creating covenants that state explicitly how we want to be together. Our Unitarian Universalist Principles are a covenant of how we want to be in the world. This morning we’ll begin to look at the importance of covenantal relationships within a community like this congregation.

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister

Sure, we’re welcoming. We’re friendly and curious but is that all that’s required of us to be a People of Welcome? Are there intentional ways we can widen our circle of welcome: as individuals, as a congregation, as Unitarian Universalists?

There are five seasons in New England: summer, fall, winter, spring and mud season. On the leading edge of spring, what might we learn from this liminal time that often feels like being “stuck” in the mud?

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Will the Real Witches Please Stand Up !

March 14th Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Linda Goodman

When we think of witches, we may imagine scary images of pointy-hatted hags on broomsticks or wart- faced women stirring vile cauldrons. But there is a tradition of wise women, herbalists, and healers who practiced the craft long before they became demonized and persecuted by the patriarchal powers. Let’s take a look at the nature-based spirituality of our crafty ancestors and ancestresses, as well as current UU members who favor the sixth source of our Living Tradition, the earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
