The Seven Social Sins

Rev. Sangrey will reflect on sin in Unitarian Universalism and provide some context for Mahatma Gandhi’s Seven Social Sins: wealth without work; pleasure without conscience; knowledge without character; religion without sacrifice; politics without principle; and business without ethics. The Board of Worship has selected Gandhi’s sins as their 2017-2018 theme. Each BOW member will develop a service on one of the sins in turn throughout the year. Des Shaw offered Religion Without Sacrifice in October.

Enjoy Living Without “Shoulds”

We’re so used to basing our morality upon “shoulds” that we may think a world without “shoulds” would be immoral.  But, the reverse can be the case.  We can live freely and compassionately and furthermore without guilt and blame which creates most of our problems anyway.  I would also like to touch upon how so living can reduce political conflict.

On the Road from Greed to Giving

As we approach the abundance of the holidays, let’s pause to consider the disparity between the feasts on our own personal tables and the poverty and deprivation in our nation and the planet beyond.  How can we feast with a good heart when so many others are without food? How can we celebrate our own good fortunes when so many lack the basic necessities of life?

White Supremacy Teach-In

Last spring in response to events in the nation and at the UUA, our congregation joined with over 700 other UU congregations in a teach-in about white supremacy. This service will continue the conversation with special attention to the characteristics of white supremacy culture, those invisible ways of thinking and being that perpetuate racism. Please read the articles in the fall issue of the UU World magazine for a review of last spring’s teach-ins and updates on new developments.
