Love is the spirit of this church
and service is its law.
This is our great covenant:
to dwell together in peace,
to seek the truth in love,
and to help one another.

 

– James Vila Blake (1842–1925),
American Unitarian minister

 

JANUARY WORSHIP SERVICES:                        

January’s monthly worship theme is Prophecy.

Sunday, January 8: Prophetic Witness

Worship Leader: Rev. Sara Hayman

Rebecca Parker, UU theologian and minister writes, “Prophetic witness. . .is the ability to name those places where we resist knowing what needs to be known.” Reflecting on this month’s worship theme of PROPHECY, this service will explore the idea of resistance. What are its theological roots in our liberal religious tradition?
