Services for March, 2018
Monthly Theme: Balance
Living Things First
Rev. Sadie Lansdale
Worship Associate: Elizabeth Cameron
Handbells will perform
We are a tradition of reinterpretation and change. How might we read sacred texts, our own hymns, and indeed our own habits through a lens of respect and reverence for life? Please join guest minister Sadie Lansdale to explore this theme. Sadie is a lifelong UU and and 2017 graduate of Union Theological Seminary. She has served as chaplain intern with the Fire Department of New York City and on the psychiatric spiritual care team at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Her home congregation is River Road UU Congregation in Bethesda, Maryland (where Rev. Doug completed his internship). She is delighted to lead worship with us.
Finding a New Balance in a #MeToo World
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Christi Bayha
Social justice work is about toppling oppressive power imbalances and installing a more equitable environment where everyone is respected for who they are. When this actually happens, there is a time of uncertainty as the new balance point emerges. Perhaps our society is in such a place with paternalism, sexual harassment, and interpersonal relationships. Come join a moderated discussion with Rev. Doug McCusker and Marcia Grimsley as we journey these uncharted waters together.
Moncure Conway: Journey to Free Thought
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Taylor Johns
Adult Choir will perform
Moncure Conway was a 19th century Unitarian minister who grew up in Falmouth and lived a very interesting life. We will be honoring his birthday this year by retracing his spiritual journey that led him away from the pulpit to be a world-famous writer and an atheist at the dawn of the Humanist movement.
