Worshiping Together Since 1830
(Religious Education, Nursery & Childcare )
Service 10:30 AM


March 1 - Deeply Religious:  Love is a Verb - Rev. Keith Kron - What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist (UU) in 2015. No matter how life-saving and worthwhile it is, it is not uncomplicated. We'll explore what it means to be a UU in today's time and why our faith matters. Worship Associate: Laurie Kelliher

Rev. Keith Kron is Director of the Transitions Office for the Unitarian Universalist Association, and lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

March 8 - Principles through Jazz - Music Sunday -- Rev. Cathy Rion Starr & Rebecca Pacuk
*Offering goes to Friends of Music*

March 15 - Holy Ground - Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner - Moses took off his shoes. Thousands have marched once again across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. A place is sacred when past, present, and future converge. As individuals and as a faith our being resides in what was – our tradition, what is –the collective, and what will be – the promise of our future.

Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner lives in New Haven with her husband, Anthony, baby daughter, Arden, and two cats. Megan has served as a pediatric chaplain in New York City, a liberal religious advocate in Washington, D.C., and a parish minister at The Universalist Church in West Hartford. She most recently served as consulting minister with Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Society in Madison, CT. Rev. Megan received her BA in Religious Studies from Wesleyan University and her MDiv from Union Theological Seminary in New York City.

March 22 - Celebrate the New Day - Celebration Sunday - Rev. Heather & Rev. Cathy Rion Starr - On this joyful day we will collectively recommit ourselves to being stewards of this congregation and stewards of the ministry and work that we do together -- to nourish our spirits, to care for one another and to be engaged with our larger world. With story, music, and vision, we move forward enthusiastically, celebrating fresh momentum as a congregation and all that we hope to do and make possible, together. Come and celebrate with us!

March 29 - What Should I Do? Who Should I LIsten To? When Is the Right Time? - Rev. Heather Rion Starr - Amid all the noise and input of contemporary life, it can be more challenging than ever to discern what is the right path for us. There is so much advice thrown about, but where is the wisdom? How do we know what to focus on? As we all emerge from a long and cold winter, let us together contemplate how we set our internal compasses as we move forward into new experiences and new seasons.

Let us know of any comments, errors and corrections - thanks (revised 3/11/15)
