Worship Service: The 8th Principle, Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees. Unitarian Universalist has 7 beloved principles that guide our ethical and spiritual commitments. The 7 principles, however, have not adequately dismantled racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions. This morning in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, we’ll explore a proposed 8th principle and consider how it would help us build a diverse and multicultural Beloved Community.

Worship Service: The Paradox of Self-Interest, Jane Palmer. 2020 will not be an easy year. We need to maintain our sanity, our courage, and our compassion, and we need to do so in a manner consistent with our moral principles. With integrity, in other words. Paradoxically, our strength lies in that most-maligned of all interests, self-interest. We are at our most powerful when we find our own stories in those of others and realize we have a stake in the game.

Worship Service: As we find ourselves amidst the Winter holiday season, we are reminded of the radically transient nature of our existence by the coming to an end of the year and the decade. As we also start to look forward, this morning’s service will explore how a skillful relationship to impermanence can allow us to not only avoid the suffering caused by unreasonable expectations but also to appreciate the miraculous nature of the present moment, something which the world’s many wisdom traditions point towards at this time of year.

This Sunday: Worship Service:
Hush, Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees.
It is increasingly difficult to find silence in our world, to discover places where we can be in solitude away from the noisiness, busyness, and distractions of life. This morning we’ll explore the need and longing our spirits have for moments of hushing. The service will include recognition of Transgender Day of Remembrance. And we’ll take our once-a-month special collection, this month to benefit Safe Berks, formerly Berks Women in Crisis
