Sunday, May 15th: Rev. Dr. Rina Shere: “Living Our Dangerous Ideas”

Our Unitarian forefather Ralph Waldo Emerson provided an important legacy to us – the idea that the true work of our lives is the heart’s spiritual awakening.  Emerson has been called America’s first public intellectual, and he placed great emphasis on each individual’s capacity and obligation for decision-making and truth seeking.  Emerson also profoundly influenced the creation of a new path for Unitarianism in the 19th century.
Join us to discover how Emerson’s thinking continues to influence our collective faith and our individual  spirituality.

Sunday, April 10th Rev. Mary Grigolia: “Symbol of Hope, of Refuge”

Can a multi-faith religious tradition have a symbol? In the 1940s, as our forebears wrestled with this question, men and women in the UU Service Committee drew chalices on windows of safe houses, for those fleeing the Nazis. The chalice evolves its own history, its own rules. We each add to its meaning. What does the UU chalice mean for you? Join us as we say ‘Thank You,’ and ‘See you at General Assembly,’ to the chalice visiting us from the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Sunday, April 17th – Green Sanctuary: “Do We Really Need All This Stuff?”

Modern humans buy, use, and throw away so much STUFF. Our high levels of consumption contribute to pollution, habitat loss for wildlife, and climate change.  Why do we do this?

This intergenerational service will explore the ways in which we’re hard wired to acquire, and how we can find new ways to satisfy our natural tendencies without destroying the planet.

Sunday April 24, 2016 – The Art of Conscious Aging: Rev. Mary Grigolia

Come explore the challenge facing our youth-obsessed culture – to embrace the spiritual tasks of the second half of life: to make meaning from our life journeys, to accept our limitations and our unique gifts, and to create ways together to share those gifts in the on-going expression of creation and evolution.
