Join us this morning as we consider how Dr. King’s example can inspire and guide us in shaping the future. How do we orient ourselves so that we can continue the work of justice, kindness, truth-seeking, and truth-telling? This morning’s music is offered by Kent, Rachel and Megan Gutzler and Dan Matz.
Some folks make New Year’s resolutions, like lose 5 pounds and read more non-fiction. Others think about living with intention, which tends to be more process-oriented, like pay attention and have worthy goals. It means moving out of autopilot and into a meaningful, well-balanced life based on your own conscious choices. And that’s swell, but what about when things are truly falling apart, like they seem to be now? How can we meet this messy life in a way that lets us be awake, wholehearted, and of service?
This morning we will be worshiping with the UU Church of Lehigh Valley via zoom. You may join the service with a computer, tablet, or mobile device.

As we move toward the winter holidays, we enter what has been, since most ancient times, the season of expectation and preparation. This morning we reflect on what it is we are waiting for. What are we preparing for? This Sunday is also the first Sunday of Advent, and we will honor Advent, UU style, by lighting the first of five candles, a purple one, for hope.
Join Rev Sage Olnick, UU Berk’s Affiliate Community Minister, to consider how telling the truth about the past can help us live into our future. When we look to the past with open minds and hearts in search of truth, we can find hope for the future.
