February 5                   Entertaining Angels            Reverend Fayre Stephenson

The Bible (Hebrews 13:2) says “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”  At this service we’ll explore the fragile art of hospitality.

February 12   Unearthing an Unknown New England Genius: Mary Moody Emerson                                                            Reverend Nancy Haverington

Through direct correspondence with her nephew, student, and lifelong interlocutor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mary Moody Emerson became the inspirational source of Transcendentalism.  Although Ralph called her “the best writer in New England,” history raised his talent and buried hers.  Nancy Haverington will lead this service to raise up and celebrate the genius of Mary Moody Emerson.

February 19         Diverse in Belief: United by Love        Reverend Fayre Stephenson

Defining religious authority could be a difficult challenge for a community with diverse theologies.  On this Sunday we’ll consider the unique religious authority that unites and defines Unitarian Universalists.

February 26         First Principle, First Window          Ann Johnson

This service will explore our first principle and the story of the Good Samaritan as it relates to individuals with cognitive disabilities.
