Jan. 29, 2017 Hear Our Voice: Echoes from the Women’s March
Women’s rights are human rights, how could we not all know this? Join us as we reflect a week after the Women’s march in Washington D.C. and across the nation. Come hear what our modern-day prophets are calling us to do.
Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader Betty Ann Trought, Worship Associate
February 5, 2017 I Am.
What happens when we strip away our name, our titles, and our identities? What happens when we simply say, I am? Imagine a world if we allowed others to do the same.
Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader Bob Clay, Worship Associate
February 12, 2017 Through Love’s Eyes: You Are.
Join us as we gather to explore how we might let our special people know just what it is about them that is so endearing that we can’t help but love them. This service is for all ages.
Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader Katherine Hillier, Worship Associate
February 19, 2017 We Are.
Just who do we think we are? Human beings are social creatures; we naturally form “tribes” of like people. This Sunday we’ll explore how our awareness of ourselves in community might invite us to practice greater inclusivity.
Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader Nancy Chaddock, Worship Associate
February 26, 2017 Love Saves Stories
Speaker: Rev. Paul Sawyer, Minister, First Universalist Society of Hartland, Vermont
The Rev. Paul Sawyer will share stories from the Old Universalists to the present day, reflecting on the saving power of love—many different kinds of love, and many different ideas of what it might mean to be “saved”—in an effort to bring some concrete examples to some ideas we often talk about in the abstract, and to invite you to reflect on the “Love Saves” stories of your own life.
