Speaker: Rev. T. J. FitzGerald

Remaking Perfection

 

On this most sacred day when we welcome new members and recall the ancient traditions of Yom Kippur, we consider what it takes to remake that which needs mending and when we can do that.

What We Keep

Promises we make to one another are at the heart of building a life of meaning. This Sunday we will look together and what making and keeping promises means to each one of us.

Workers of the World

 

Labor and the way we work stands at the center of so much of our productivity. How do we know if we are working as we should? And what does it cost us if we are not? We will look together at labor this Labor … read more.

When It Doesn’t Matter

The essence of transformation is present in worship. For Unitarian Universalists, our learning, our justice, and then how these come together when we come together, is at the heart of our faith.

When I’m Right

As a faith we try always to be on the right side of history and the right side of the day. A justice seeking people will do this. How does justice work combine with our learning to breed righteousness?

When I’m Wrong

Learning is essential to any life of faith. Sometimes we learn by simply adding new information. But other more painful ways of learning involve being wrong and learning what to do about it.

Pardon the Disruption

From time to time in the lives of so many, disruption changes our plans. This month we consider what disruption might mean to us in our daily lives and our lives of faith. Is it a blessing or a curse? And how do we know … read more.

Cup of Kindness

 

On this Stonewall Sunday we remember and celebrate the power of a generation that united under a banner of shared suffering to force a culture to change, to grow, and to love.

Awful Grace

Grace is something we ask for, something we say, something we offer. We look together about the cost and the value of grace in our own lives and the life of The Beloved Community.

Question Box 2020

It’s that time of year again. If you have any questions at all about church, life, faith, understanding, misunderstanding, or baseball (or any other topic), email your question to Rev. T. J. by June 3 and he will cover it in his sermon this day.

The Next Generation

The voyage we are all on together is remarkable. We will talk plainly this Sunday about what it takes to usher in a new age for our church and for our community on this Stewardship Sunday.

In the Silence

On this day of remembrance of the Holocaust, we consider how of history of silence in the face of great evil presents the constant work of our liberal faith to speak truth to power and never to forget.

A Church Universal

In a time when we realize how connected the world really is, we take a moment to reflect on the meanings of celebrations like Easter, Oestara, and the turning of the seasons.

Home on the Hill

Is a church a building? Is it where you are physically? We will talk a little about what makes a house a home and what makes a people a church this Sunday from our own homes.

 

The information to attend by Zoom is here. If you … read more.

Ode to Joy

 

Our congregation repeats often its mission, “boldly growing, compassion, justice, and joy.” On this Sunday we will look together at what joy can mean and what it needs to thrive. Come and look more deeply at the way this congregation acts in the world.

Let It Be So

 

 

New history comes with new action. Together we consider what stories we will tell the generations to come and how to write them together.

Let It Be Written

 

History, as we often hear, is written by the winners. We will deepen our remembrance and celebration of Black History Month by looking at the ways history is written and what impact that writing has on those who appear not to be the “winners.”

Running Ever Since

On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday, we will walk to the intersection of so many lives given in the name of freedom. The interconnection King prophesied came true tragically, but possibly for the betterment of all. How do we honor this today?
