Speaker: Rev. Ben Meyers

Earth Day

What is the relationship between Earth Day and God / The Divine? We honor and celebrate our seventh principle — the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. UUSM’s children are featured, and guests Clovice Lewis and Carol Cole-Lewis offer special music.

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.

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?

A Generous Love

Love and acts of generosity can change a person’s life for the better — for both the receiver and the giver. Join this all-ages worship when we explore love, celebrate generous natures, and offer a special congregational dedication for one of our newly born.

Transformation and Impermanence

Change can be hard – especially, it seems, the most meaningful changes. Letting go – letting go of one way of being to embrace another way or just plain letting someone or something leave your life – can be an act of faith. Jessica York, Director of Congregational Life at your Unitarian Universalist Association, reflects on how our faith has affected her ability to accept the inevitability of change.
