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!

The House of Belonging

Unitarian Universalism is a house of belonging for those who find shelter and inspiration in congregational life. This sermon will explore what makes this faith unique and how we can open the doors wider to people seeking a liberal and life-affirming message. Reverend Amy Moses-Lagos attended Starr King School for the Ministry and lived in San Francisco for many years before moving to Seattle, WA in 2014. She currently serves as the quarter-time minister at Free Church Unitarian in Blaine, WA, and also works as a stay-at-home parent to her six-year-old autistic son. 

Forgiveness: The Final Form of Love

Jewish theologian Martin Buber teaches that human beings are “promise-making, promise-keeping, promise-breaking, promise-renewing” creatures. It is forgiveness that lies in the space between promise breaking and renewing. The process of forgiveness requires us to face the worst and the best of our humanness. Christian theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, originator of the Serenity Prayer, hallows forgiveness as the “final form of love.” It is an essential component of creating Beloved Community. What do we do when those we trust most break their promises and seek forgiveness?
