Services

Music Service

Music Coordinator Shaylor Lindsay, along with Music Producer Kurt Pfrommer and our choir members, bring a service of seasonal music and readings. Join Rev. Claire, DRE Beryl Aschenberg and our amazing musicians as we celebrate the warmth and light of music during Advent and Hanukkah.

Grace

Grace is a gift. We can’t earn it. We can’t control it. We don’t have to deserve it. Our worship theme of Grace begins with dis-grace. Mary, unwed and pregnant, makes a decision to refuse shame and embrace life. What can we learn from her and how can we find grace in our lives?

It is what it is… but does it have to be?

The punishing reality of life in a pandemic, in a contentious political and social landscape, forces us to make choices about when to just get through and when to hope, dream, work for something more. How might we shape what is real for ourselves and our neighbors with our choices and attention?

Giving Thanks

Rev. Feingold Thoryn and Beryl Aschenberg bring a family-friendly, multigenerational message of gratitude. Have a piece of paper and crayons or pencils nearby!

A visit from Rev. Mary Margaret Earl

We hear from guest preacher, Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, Executive Director and Senior Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry (UUUM) in Roxbury, MA.

Post-Election Reality

As we face our post-election reality, what is the way forward? Rev. Claire Feingold Thoryn continues the November theme of “Real.”

A message from the UUA President

In the days to come, America will see many changes. Our challenge as people of faith is to stay true to our values: to accept what is real, and work to change what we cannot accept. We welcome guest preacher Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick-Gray as she shares her “UU the Vote” homily.

Be the Change

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” goes the saying. In this liminal time of change, how can we and our communities be bold, be brave, and be the change? Rev. Claire will share a story of inspiration from one nonviolent activist whose actions changed the world.

Worship with Melanie DeMore

We welcome back vocal activist Melanie DeMore! Melanie will lead our worship and our music in her melodic, rhythmic, authentic style. Be ready to be wrapped in her beautiful melodies and join in the singing from home.

Delta

In this time of constant, shifting change, how do we take it one day at a time? Rev. Claire reflects on our worship theme of “Delta,” with inspirations including meditation, Alcoholics Anonymous, clinically depressed motivational speaker Glennon Doyle, and the recently departed Eddie Van Halen. Our music will complement the service.
