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.

Universalism: God Bless the Whole World.

 No Exceptions.

Unitarian Universalism is a mouthful, and it’s common among us to skip over the Universalist part and just say we’re Unitarians. This Sunday we will celebrate John Murray, a Universalist preacher who came, kicking and screaming, from England in 1770 to spread the gospel of universal salvation in America. All John wanted to do was disappear into the wilds of the New World, but his ship ran aground off the New Jersey coast, and he met Thomas Potter, an illiterate farmer who had been waiting for years for Murray to come. The rest is history.

White Supremacy Teach-In

Our congregation will join with hundreds of other UU congregations in an exploration of white supremacy and how it affects our nation, the Unitarian Universalist Association, our congregation, and each one of us. Bring an open heart and a willingness to learn to this service.

A Time of Miracles



Rebirth in the natural world can nourish us in this season of Passover and Easter as the old stories about Moses and Jesus instruct us still.. Miracles were an intellectual problem for Thomas Jefferson, who rewrote the gospels to leave them out, but even the most rational and skeptical among us has been visited by more miracles than we can count. The gift of your life, for example.

The Great Turning:


Meeting change with an open heart. 

We are in the midst of profound changes and challenges—environmental and societal.  How do we respond? Do we retreat into fear and distrust and denial? Or can we find ways to move through and beyond our fears and respond with courage, creativity, and compassion?
