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.

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.
