September Ministry Theme:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person

Words to Live By: We, the congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

 

September 7 – 10 a.m. followed by the 4th Annual “Pies for Peace”
Gather the Waters: We Begin Again in Love
Worship Leaders: Reverend Carolyn Patierno, Reverend Caitlin O’Brien, and Ministerial Intern Rebecca Bryan.
American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by Elizabeth Bull.

Our annual Water Communion is led in the spirit of re-creation and recommitment. Ritual is a container for joy and a salve for brokenness. Bring water to add to the common bowl—water from your home or travels.

This year’s Pies for Peace beneficiary is “Seeds of Peace.” http://www.seedsofpeace.org/mission#sthash.LfLWLQAg.dpuf  For more information see the newsletter page 7.

Dedicated Offering – Religious Education Scholarships

Again this year there will be a $100 registration fee for each child enrolled in our religious education program with a $200 cap per family. No one will be turned away, of course. We extend an invitation to the congregation to support this ministry through the “Religious Education Scholarship Fund.” Envelopes will be in the September 7 & 14 orders of service for those who are willing and able to make a contribution. If you would like to donate by check, please put “RE Scholarship Fund” in the memo line.

September 14 – One service at 10:00 a.m.   First Day of Religious Education Classes
“The Spiritual Muscle of Inherent Worth and Dignity”

Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno
Our first principle is a spiritual practice and like most spiritual practices, it is easier said than done. Honoring the inherent worth and dignity of all through it all. How?

After the service:  Congregational Dialogue will take place in Unity Hall. Congregants are invited to ask questions, offer comments, and listen to issues surrounding the sale of 60 Huntington Street.

11 a.m. Religious Education Kick-off Breakfast and Parent Orientation

September 21 – One service at 10 a.m.
“Baking Bread”
Worship Leader: Barb May • Guest preacher: Len Salter
By honoring the worth and dignity of my wife’s family, we were able to turn their forbiddance into acceptance. By showing them on their terms that our love is valid and true, they graced us with their blessing and welcomed us into the fold.

Special Congregational Meeting following the service. See page 4 of newsletter for Call to Meeting.

September 28 – 9:30 & 11:15 a.m.
“Let the Wrong Ones In”
Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno
Preacher: Rebecca Bryan

Who among us hasn’t felt like the ‘wrong one” at some time? “Did I miss the instructional book?” We wonder. Rebecca will share her story of how she learned that what she thought was so wrong was actually the opening to all that is right.
