During most of the year, our Sunday morning worship service schedule includes a 10 a.m. service for families (children and adults) and a 10:30 a.m. service for adults (while children attend religious education classes). The service and the religious education classes both end at 11:30 a.m. and are followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.

Services not following that schedule are indicated.

January 5                   “Whole, Holy, and Hole-y”

It’s a new year, with the promise of a fresh start, a chance to make resolutions and fix what’s amiss with ourselves. But aren’t we always in process, always hurting, always healing, always messy, always whole in our brokenness? This morning we will embrace the things that make us unique as the beautiful gifts they are.

January 12                 “Not to Save Our Souls But to Grow Our Souls”

In our work- and wealth-obsessed culture, we may confuse our self worth with our net worth. But the landscape of employment has changed drastically in our times, and we are reckoning with the impact of our economy on our selves, our communities, and our world. Our service this morning will reflect on the meaning of work with integrity given this difficult context.

January 19                 “Being a Decent Human Being in a Time of Climate Crisis”

Given the magnitude of what we face in these times and the times to come, how do we moderate our personal and collective expectations with integrity and strive for new ways of being and new forms of moral assessment and moral imagination as Unitarian Universalists? This sermon is the second in a series that began with a prior sermon, “The Times They Are A-Changin'”.

Guest Speaker Rev. Dr. Michelle Walsh, LICSW is a Unitarian Universalist community minister and shares a private justice consulting and spiritual coaching practice with her husband, Rev. Dr. Clyde Grubbs known as Tuckerman Creative Ministries for Justice & Healing.  She also has worked as a scholar activist for many years in urban contexts, teaches as a Lecturer at Boston University, and is the author of Violent Trauma, Culture and Power: An Interdisciplinary Exploration in Lived Religion as well as chapters in other volumes.

January 26                          TBA

Rev. Jolie will lead worship today, touching on our monthly worship theme of integrity. The specific topic is TBA. Stay tuned! Come to church, it will be great! 🙂
