  • November 28, 10 am:  Reaping the Fruits of Migrant Labor - Caroline Gander

    Migrant labor has played a critical role in the agricultural history of the U.S. This service explores the spiritual significance of the injustices that migrant workers face.

  • December 5, 10 am:  We Are Brave - Sharing Our Stories to Heal the World - jo mosher 

    In these stressful, uncertain times, the thing we need most is connection to individuals--to anchor us in the sea of just how large our world can feel. Stories can help change hearts and minds about justice and equity, and stories can encourage folx to be brave and embrace their diversities as strengths, rather than hindrances. Join jo mosher (they/them), as they share their own story of bravery, healing and joy. As a transmasculine Person of Color from the South, they have quite an epic story to share. They hope it will inspire you, open your hearts to even more allyship for the oppressed, and leave with you just a little bit of new bravery within yourself.

  • December 12, 10 am:  Do You See the Girl with the Telescope?: A Consideration of Ambiguity - Jon Rogers

    Using a sermon from UU minister Rev. John Gibbons of First Parish Bedford in MA, we consider how ambiguity can be considered a UU value.

  • December 19, 10 am:  Why We Should Celebrate - Rev. Severn Towl (read by Rachel Marsh-Sachs)

  • Friday, December 24, 6 pm:  Memories of Christmas Eve - Rev. Carl Shesler 

    We will have festive carols and music, and Rev. Shesler and members of the congregation will share memories of Christmas Eve.

  • December 26, 10 am:  A Celebration of Small Acts of Kindness - Caroline Gander
