As we begin our month exploring the theme of ‘Becoming’, we celebrate a Unitarian Universalist interpretation of the Easter story. Jesus taught us to become who we are born to be, by fearlessly living his values and his message of love. How can we become all we are born to be? Today’s service will be broadcast from our Sanctuary.
Today’s service is inspired by the writing on the walls of our sanctuary. It’s been a whole year since we’ve seen those words in person, but the words are still there, holding our space.

Although the term ‘Beloved Community’ was originally coined by philosopher/theologian Josiah Royce, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King used it to paint a picture of the world he dreamed of…. a society based on justice, equal opportunity and love. Today we explore how we might become Beloved Community, both as a congregation and world. What will it take for us to live into this dream?
Too much of our thinking is limited by past and present experience. What if instead we envisioned the beautiful world our hearts know is possible, and work towards that future vision? Join us this Sunday as we use the power of imagination to envision a future that is sustainable, equitable and caring for all
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Congressman John Lewis were staunch advocates of a non-violent revolution. Today, on this Sunday celebrating Martin Luther King Day, we explore what non-violent action means, and the many ways we might engage it to make our world more racially equitable and just.
