On Sunday, November 15th, Rev. Emily Burr will present a sermon entitled, “Justice, Equity and Compassion.”
Few people would argue that more justice, equity and compassion would make the world a kinder gentler place to live. How can we incorporate these three qualities of human relations in our daily lives? Where do we see them in the larger world today? Is the universe bending toward justice?
Robin Charles will be the musican and Denise Steadman our Worship Associate.

This Sunday, October 18th, our minister, Rev. Emily Burr, will be presenting a sermon on Unitarian Univeralism’s 1st principle. Here’s a few words from Emily about this week’s sermon:
This week I get to be with you on Sunday morning again. The service is the first in a series about our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles. How can we affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person? Such a tall order! Yet there are small actions we can easily take in this direction. So much of life is about attitude. We can affirm the worth and dignity of some of the people in our everyday lives with a small change in how we think about them. I’d love to see you on Sunday and hear your thoughts about our first Principle during coffee hour.
