Worship Service: "Only Hope Was Left Within" by Rev. Ian White Maher

Why do we do evil to one another? Are we not all one family? Some of the post-Modernists laugh glibly at the people seeking meaning and, particularly, progress in life. They accuse us of mistaking materialism for growth and for believing that humanity has become any more moral or ethical. But still, I believe.

Worship Service: "A People of Belonging" – a lay-led service from Soul Matters and Alice Ward, lay leader and Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Strong, Minister Emerita, Ashby First Parish UU

Alice Ward and Rev. Liz will facilitate a small group service from Soul Matters exploring the meaning of belonging.

Our monthly lay-led worship service comes from the Soul Matters Sharing Circle – a network of Unitarian Universalist congregations who follow the same monthly themes so we can more easily share small group material, as well as worship, sermon, music and children's religious education resources. We are a web of support and connection. Companions traveling a new journey together each month.
