“Radical Hospitality Revisited” – 10:00am
In 2008, Rev. David Pyle and I preached a sermon together on Radical Hospitality, which has become a catch phrase as well as a spiritual practice we strive for as Unitarian Universalists. As the need for true inclusiveness becomes more urgent and as cities and schools become sanctuaries, how do we, as a religious community, move beyond hospitality toward greater inclusion and a deeper sense of belonging? Rev. Eileen Wiviott speaking.
“Courage!” – 10:00am
In this time when our nation seems going backwards and the forces of reaction growing ever stronger, courage is definitely needed. But where can we get courage, when things seem pretty hopeless? This sermon will draw upon some of the great discussions of courage in the traditions of the world, Plato, Aristotle, the Bhagavad Gita, the way of Bushido, and Thich Nhat Hanh for the insights they can give us for the courage needed for these days. Rev. Dr. Jerome Stone speaking.
“Not the End of the Story” – 10:00am
A favorite story and some parting thoughts. A worship service for all ages. Rev. Connie Grant speaking. The service will also include recognition of religious education teachers and graduates as well as gratitude to Rev. Connie for nine years with our congregation.
“A Love Supreme” and the theology of John Coltrane – 9:15 and 11:00am
John Coltrane’s masterpiece is a fixture in the jazz canon, but also a tale of transcendence. Through the lens of “A Love Supreme” and its creation, there are lessons of healing and meaning relevant for today. Rev. Bret Lortie speaking.
