Celebrating the sacred,
we gather in loving community
to nourish souls
and live justice into the world.




Sunday, September 2: Dangerous Words
Rev. Erika Hewitt, Midcoast UU Fellowship, Worship Leader
Amy Fiorilli, Worship Associate 

First Sunday Potluck Following Worship!  

Language matters. The wrong words can communicate something we’re unaware ofand can even do great harm. Come hear about seven of these “dangerous words”—and the alternative, life-giving language we might use to strengthen respect and trust across our relationships. 

Sunday, September 9: Water Communion Sunday
Amy Fiorilli, Worship Leader 

This ritual in the life of our church is more than just our mingling of waters; it is a time to recommit to each other and the vision of our church as it moves through another year of work in the world. On this day we reflect more deeply on our vision to “Celebrate the sacred, we join in loving community to nurture souls and live justice into the world.” As we face the challenges before us, together, let us remember the power of water…the life it offers and all it represents. 

Sunday, September 16: Democracy, Our Religious Principle
Rev. Charles Stephens, Worship Leader 

There is little question that ours is a time of political strife. We UUs affirm and promote the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large as one of our religious principles. Democracy depends on engagement; it is only a lofty goal if not translated into specific actions. We UUs do not all orient toward the same political persuasion. It would be dangerous for us if we did. However, being actively involved in our democratic process for Unitarian Universalists is a matter a religious commitment. How committed are we? 

Sunday, September 23: Lay-Led Service
Robin Lovrien, Worship Leader 

Silent Joys & Sorrows 

Sunday, September 30: Vision and Awakening
Amy Fiorilli, Worship Leader 

As Carl Jung has said, “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” At this time of the year when Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of Atonement, and the shift from summer to fall are upon us, let us explore more deeply the role of vision and awakening in our lives and communities.
