Sunday Services

Sunday, October 6 – “Our Living Tradition,” written by the Rev. Julie Stoneberg, Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough.

Our Living Tradition is “a tradition handed down through generations, a tradition which embraces an ongoing process of ever-evolving beliefs and practices…a process by which we accumulate, use, sort through, replace, discard and keep. This is an important and distinguishing feature of this faith; our tradition, Unitarian Universalism, evolves and changes, being modified and changed with each new generation. And yet, there is a thread, multiple threads really, that we follow…roots that we can trace back in time.”

Sunday, October 13 – “What Does It Mean to Be a People of Belonging?”

We will consider the Soul Matters theme for October of “Belonging,” with a message by the Rev. Victoria Stafford, entitled, “Safe and Profoundly Unsound.”   Here are some of her words:   As UUs, “We are believers in the responsibility of everyone, of all of us, each of us, no matter how frightened we are in these frightening times, to be something other than afraid.”

Sunday, October 20  – Rev. George Bennett, “Who is my neighbor?”

It’s a question that was asked of Jesus, which prompted him to tell perhaps his most famous parable — the story of the Good Samaritan.

This may be the most important question for our nation’s future.

The answer to this question refutes and undermines the fear and hate that animates so much of our current political life.

Share the Plate Sunday:  Donations to the plate this Sunday, not otherwise designated as pledges, will go to Habitat for Humanity.  The Habitat for Humanity “Building on Faith” build is usually scheduled for November.  This is an annual collaboration among churches to raise funds and build a Habitat during a one-week blitz-build.  

Sunday, October 27 –  Rev. Anna Hall -“Sustaining Ourselves in the Fight for Justice”

Anna Hall will speak about the need for self-care practices as we work to change our world. She will share practices from many traditions that can help ground us and inspire us  when we are called to be peacemakers or changemakers to build a better future.
