Sunday Services at 10:30 A.M.

4/2/23 Rev. Barbara Threet, Singing the Living Tradition
Every Sunday we pass out copies of our hymnal. Today we’ll explore some of its hidden and not-so-hidden treasures, twists and turns: in the words of one of the songs in our hymnal, “Now let us sing!” We’ll also learn a bit about the role of music in worship for our Unitarian and Universalist forebears.

Please bring a contribution for Food First Sunday. Canned goods with pull tabs are easiest for people who don't have kitchen access, but any non-perishable food is most welcome.

4/16/23 Meg Baker, On Mending
We live surrounded by textiles, and we live surrounded by wear and tear. Things come apart, from seams to hearts to communities. Bringing together threads of history, community, practicality and spirituality, we weave an interdependent web to help mend ourselves and our world.

4/23/23 Rebecca Mattis, Eternal Life
This is a combination Easter/Earth Day sermon that Rebecca wrote for a congregation in Austin, TX. Rebecca wrestles with the spiritual wound that is climate change, considering themes of death and rebirth, despair and hope, freezing and fecundity, brevity and eternity. Human behavior causes environmental destruction, yet humans are part of and subject to nature. Is it too audacious to speak of redemption?

4/30/23 Turning Point Center of Rutland
This is about a non-profit recovery center that provides a safe, friendly, fun, and substance free environment. All people in recovery, and their family and friends, can meet here for recovery support, meetings, social activities, recovery coaching, education, and advocacy. The Turning Point Center respects all paths to recovery.

5/7/23 Rev Barbara Threet, The Other Descendants
American UUs and English Unitarians trace their ancestry back to the Reformation: we’re close cousins. Another branch of our family, our somewhat less-well-known and slightly-different cousins eventually landed in Transylvania, in what is now Romania. We’ll explore how they got there, who they are today, and what some of the similarities and differences are between western UUs and Eastern European Unitarians. The topic for this sermon was purchased by Herb Ogden at our 2022 Auction.
