Rev. Steve Wilson: Honoring All Your Teachers- In the context of a late night infomercial,
we skip past the latest ab-crunching machine to focus on the importance of witnessing oneself. We ask how do our own nearest habits instruct us about who we are , and what we love.

June 19th is the final chance to see our collaborative Art Show of 29 artists "Visions of Peace".
The show closes the 19th with a slide lecture by collage "fleurage" artist Harry White from Glastonbury, CT. harrywhitecollage.com

Sunday, July 17th 11:30am ~ coffee at 11am ~ Unitarian Universalism- Our Oddly Modern Spiritual Journey: “It has been said that “Unitarian-Universalist’s don’t stand for anything, we move.” In this hour we will look comprehensively at the journey our American church tradition has made, and examine the polarities and dynamics that make us who we are.
July 31st 11:30 am ~ coffee at 11am ~Tea with the Transcendentalists: This service is an imaginary effort to connect us to what it might be like to be in Emerson’s living room with the likes of Margaret Fuller, Henry Hedge, and Thoreau. Unitarian Universalism is a non-creedal tradition, but not one without an important history those among us should know. Sharpen up your number 2 pencils.
August 7th 11:30 am ~ coffee at 11am : Unitarian Grace: One can be said to have grace, or be graceful, to be prayerful before a meal is to say grace. This spiritual attribute and word that came to connote fluid elegant action is the same word we use to talk about the idea of God swooping down to protect and save us. Today we have a meditation and examination on this both beautiful and enigmatic word.
Aug 21st 11:30 am ~ coffee at 11am ~ Virtue- Life’s Essential Skills: Honest, disciplined, humble, and patient are all the things we want our neighbors to be. This simple sermon falls somewhere between a rap on the knuckles lecture about being good, and a self–esteem group hug to do your best and don’t fret.
Sunday, Sept 18th 11:30 am ~ coffee at 11am ~ Discerning What to Worry about (A Water In-Gathering Service): Water is the source of life.. It is the largest percentage of earth surface. Water is the bulk of your body’s weight. Wow. In this water in gathering service we speak personally about our unique gifts, and get into the issue of what one should really worry about. Grab the water you saved this summer, take a few mental notes about your summer and join us for the first official service of the church year.
