February 2017 Services
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.
