Gathered Near: Religion in the Round

Posted by on Feb 11, 2018 in Worship Services

We will welcome Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason to our pulpit on Sunday, February 11 at 10:00am. She writes of her sermon “Together we will consider what makes our Unitarian Universalist community a deeply religious one. Our liberal tradition calls on us to congregate, much as Unitarians have done for centuries now, and it calls us on to still greater love today. How we respond to those calls makes all the difference in the life of our faith.”

The Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason is Community Minister at the First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn, NY. She also teaches Denominational Studies at Union Theological Seminary, where she previously worked as Pastoral Counselor on staff. For the past several years, she has blogged at What Heals Us in Our Souls.

Laura Wagner with Stories of Hope

Posted by on Jan 28, 2018 in Worship Services

Join the congregation at First Parish of Sudbury this Sunday when we will welcome back Ms. Laura Wagner who will preach the sermon titled “Stories of Hope”. “Ms. Wagner LICSW, Executive Director of UU (Unitarian Universalist) Mass Action, will share her perspective regarding our role in justice movements today.

She writes, “At the center of any powerful movement you’ll find amazing individuals who are creating justice. What can we learn from each other and how will we create justice during these difficult times.”

Laura began her involvement with UU Mass Action as a volunteer working on the immigrant rights campaign.  Laura’s grandparents were survivors of the Armenian Genocide and this family history has been a motivating factor in her immigrant justice work.

Now, as Executive Director, she has been working to increase the number of those engaged in social justice work, deepen connections to each other as well as to our communities and interfaith partners and organize our shared work to help increase out impact.  Our vision for our shared work is to create a world where all people are honored and valued.

Matt Meyer to lead worship

Posted by on Jan 21, 2018 in Worship Services

“Love the  hell out of this world”  You won’t want to miss the return of Matt Meyer who will lead our worship service on Jan. 21. Matt’s worship services provide a dynamic and varied experience of rhythm’s enduring power to teach us about ourselves and each other. “When the congregation is wrapped up in the sounds of the drum, fully absorbed in the readings or moved to their feet by inspired group rhythm-making, there is a magic that happens… community is cultivated.”

At 11:30am Matt will offer a workshop “Mobilizing Congregations For Justice: A Training for Activists”:

Congregations can be a powerful force when mobilized for justice work. This training will teach, model, and practice 3 central tools for community organizing that can be used to build a more loving and powerful justice-centered community. Matt offers a compelling pathway toward broad ownership of the congregation’s justice work.

Join us, bring family and friends. Let yourself be changed by this experience.
