Who Do I Think I Am?

In the past sixty years, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland has had seasons with professional ministers and seasons of lay leadership. Last year the congregation was lay led. This year you have a new minister. So what difference does it make? What is a minister anyway? What do  ministers do? Rev. Dawn will share how she became a professional minister, and what ministry means to her. Together lay people and ministers create the life of the congregation. What’s your vision of our life together?

Trash Talking: Spirit in Practice

What does spiritual practice look like among Unitarian Universalists? The Board of Worship has chosen “Spirit in Practice” as their organizing theme for 2016-2017.  Each BOW member will offer a service during the coming year on a variation of the theme: mind practices, body practices, soul practices, life practices, justice practices.  Today we will take a walk down Haines Road with Rev. Dawn and consider the spiritual practice of picking up the trash.

How to Survive the Next 36 Days

Our Presidential election is more than a month away, and it feels as if it’s been going on forever. Let’s pause as the campaigns move into their final weeks to reflect on the role of the religious community in political discourse and on our heart’s experience of this year’s campaign. The Rev. Karen Brammer asks, “What in the world does ‘love thy neighbor’ mean in the midst of deep polarization in our communities?” How does our UU faith inform our political decisions and behavior?

What Are We Doing Here?

This congregation is more than a social club where like-minded people come together to drink coffee and talk about their ideas.  It is more than a collection of boards and committees who organize our institutional life.  It is more than the physical buildings and grounds and the tireless workers who tend them.  It is even more than a worshipping community where we gather on Sunday morning to share what we believe to be spiritually worthwhile.  This congregation has a role to play in moving the arc of the universe toward justice.

Do Unitarian Universalists Go To Heaven? 

What happens if there really is a Heaven and, as according to the theory of Universal Salvation, we all go there? By what guidelines might we expect to be admitted or by which might we be denied admission? What would be expected of us there? What would be the potential for asking those we had harmed for forgiveness?  How would we respond if someone came to us and asked us to forgive them? How would you spend eternity?
