Celebrating the sacred,

MARCH WORSHIP SERVICES, 10:30 a.m.
 
Sunday, March 3: The Journey of Awakening            
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Karen Volckhausen, Worship Associate       
UU Minister Debra Haffner writes, “we are on a journey…a journey to our better selves,
a journey to a better world, a journey to a more promised land.” Our third and fourth UU Principles call us to the practices of “acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations,” and engagement in “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”  How do we call and encourage each other to this transformative growth and self-understanding? Come and be welcome.

Sunday, March 10: The Journey: Lengthening, Not Leaving
Amy Fiorilli, Worship Leader
Lori Johnson, Worship Associate

The season of Lent is upon us. What does this mean for a UU? The Rev. Pamela M. Bartz remarks: do you know what the word “Lent” means? It isn’t about lending something. It comes from an Old English word meaning “to lengthen.” In our part of the world, Lent comes at the time when the days are lengthening. The light is growing. And the word Lent reminds us that this season is about helping light to grow in and through us…” In this service we will explore the aspects of journeying that require us to “lengthen” in place instead of leave for another.

Sunday, March 17: Journey into Living & Dying
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Eileen Brennan, WorshipAssociate

Beloved poet Mary Oliver writes, “When it’s over…I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” Do you feel you are living your life to the fullest? Is being aware of your mortality something that sharpens your resolve to live well, with a greater sense of meaning and purpose? What wisdom and insights about being alive shape the decisions and priorities you hold? This service will invite you to reflect on these questions.

Sunday, March 24: Justice on Earth: The Time is NOW!
Robin Lovrien, Gary Shellehamer, Worship Leaders

” …Racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources… [We must] recognize that our faith calls us to long-haul work for justice for our human kin, for the Earth and for all life.” On this Sunday, we join with our sister churches in Castine and Belfast to acknowledge this call, with the same hymns and readings, and separate sermons about Justice on Earth. In preparation for this service, you are invited to read Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class and Environment, a collection of readings that will move us to action.

Bible Class at 12 p.m.
New to UU Class at 12:30 p.m.

Sunday, March 31: Journey Into Generosity
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader

What helps us grow into being more generous people? What holds us back? How does our UU faith call us to be generous in the world?
