Speaker: Rev. Ben Meyers

Considering the Divine

Completing our consideration of The Divine / God, our congregational theme for the month of April, Rev. Ben offers a UU perspective that “belief in God and belief in no-God abide together: each valued, each respected, each necessary.” This service features special music by Karyn and Shaun Collins, and Paul Zawilski.

Earth Day / Worth Day — Multigenerational Service

What is the relationship between Earth Day and The Divine / God, this month’s congregational theme? RE Director Tanya Webster and Rev. Ben are joined by our UUSM children and Chris LaPaglia to honor and celebrate our seventh principle — the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Something about Jesus

We continue considering God / The Divine, our April congregational theme, this time through the lens of Easter. Rev. Ben explores the centrality of “loving our neighbors as ourselves” in our UU heritage and values. Guest musicians Clovice Lewis and Carol Cole-Lewis offer special music.

Passover in Retrospect and Now

As we continue to live through the pandemic, we consider God / The Divine — April’s theme — in relation to three major religious holidays this month. With Passover starting Wednesday, Betsy Taub shares reflections on past Passovers and their present-day applicability. Rev. Ben helps us consider the monthly theme’s relevance and meaning in our own lives, and in our community.

Annual Philippines Partner Church Sunday: The Goal of World Community

Unitarian Universalism’s sixth principle “affirms and promotes the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.” Our congregation is a denominational leader for embodying a deep and abiding relationship with our partner church in the Philippine village of Ulay. We are changing lives and improving conditions through spiritual, educational, and economic programs that model an ongoing, mutually-transformative, international partnership. Come learn, celebrate, and support this vital work!

Cultivating Generosity

Generosity is a spiritual practice. It helps to transform an ordinary community into one that is beloved. How can we learn to be more generous in substance and spirit?
