Rev. Jeannie Shero and David Barrett

In this service, we welcome our architect, David Barrett, who will join Rev. Shero in sharing explorations. Consider the ways in which beauty and the physical space we inhabit can open us to deeper experiences and transformation. As our building is being transformed, we, too, are changing. These are core to our congregational story: We learn.
We grow. We love. We change.
We inspire and are inspired. These aspects of who we are help us
to live into our mission and ful ll our vision. An amazing year is well begun, and will deliver us nally into a space transformed by our vision, commitment, and care.

Join us for our annual All Souls service, honoring all of our loved ones who have died. As we lift up the importance of their lives to our own lives, we will be telling a communal story of the impact of generations on those who come after them and of dear friends who blessed our lives. Remembering is a gift that can be hard to bear. Together, we will journey into memory and love, seeking inspiration and hope.

What each of us brings to this church is amazing. How we change one another’s lives for the better is profound. The impact of a beloved community over time is precious. In this service, the rst line of the hymn Where Do We Come From will serve as a focus for exploration. Re ecting on decades of experience and memories, Paul Belden and Rhoda Whitney will speak to the importance of this beloved community and its impact on their lives. We hope this service will inspire us all to reach out for new connections, to nurture existing connections, and to consider how we change one another’s lives for the better.

In a Month of Healing, how do we respond to those who call on us to serve ourselves and let others do the same. When we are wounded, why isn’t it better to build a wall? We will explore what it means to be willing to reach out beyond our selves and our comfort level and practice healing love, and be the balm in troubled times.

Join us for a service lifting up the struggle to end gun violence. The madness of one shooting after another is staggering and can seem insurmountable. It will come to an end only with the thoughtful and peaceful engagement of people of good will who are willing to work to make it so. Our congregation has been engaged in the fight for our lives for years, and we pause to rekindle the fire of commitment to wage peace in the nation.

Continuing our explorations as a Community of Covenant, we will look at what it means to be engaged in a living relationship that transcends mere transactions and what happens when relationships become stressed or even break down. What does this mean for our covenant? How do we rebuild and revisit our relationship at that moment? Part of the answer lies in understanding the nature of human relationships and the difference between transaction, contract, and covenant - and the importance of redemption, mercy, and forgiveness

This year, we will be following Theme Based Ministry themes from a Unitarian Universalist collaborative ministry, Soul Matters Sharing Circle. Over 190 congregations participate! The themes follow the pattern “A Community of ______.” Join us for the first in the series, A Community of Covenant. Our covenant is not a once for all time agreement. Rather, it is a process of committing to one another and to shared agreements thoughtfully and lovingly. Like the body, a covenant needs nurture, exercise, and regular checkups to remain healthy. Together, we are working out our covenant.

Life is full of twists and turns. We can expect many things to turn out as we desire, yet we must also know that some will not. Part of the role of this beloved community is to remind us again and again that our task is not to be perfect, not to know everything, not to predict perfectly, but to be humble and human together. Love is the spirit of this church. Love will guide us.
