Sunday, December 17 10am, join the congregation of First Parish of Sudbury Unitarian Universalist for their Sunday worship service on the month’s theme of Hope.

Mr. David Andrews, long-time UU and trustee, will offer a sermon “Are Hope and Fear sleeping together? Andrews will explore whether there is a relationship between Hope and Fear, and if so, what the nature of that relationship is. He will explore some traditional philosophical views on this, and some modern psychological ones, as well.

Dave is a father, and a career engineer turned physics teacher, who discovered First Parish and Unitarian Universalism on Christmas day, some 15 years ago.  Dave enjoys singing sea shanties and barbershop harmony,  and listening to many kinds of music.  He is still exploring the spiritual dimensions, possibilities, and  practicalities of the statement: “we hold many (differing) beliefs, but gather as one.”

A Bigger Kind of Joy…

Posted by on Dec 10, 2017 in General News, Worship Services

As we enter into December, we face into the darker and shorter days of the year, we look for ways to find the light in the midst of the longest night.  This is the time when if we cultivate our faith and seed hope we may be able to carry on in the bleak midwinter. Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty as she faces into the darkness and uncovers a bigger kind of joy fueled by hope. She shares that, ” Hope can be a dangerous emotion because it pulls our attention away from the present moment. Hope can blind us from the truth of a situation, however, hope is also an emotion that gives us the energy to live despite challenges, to love despite uncertainty, and to embrace both who we are in the moment and what we may become, with faith instead of fear as our guide.” Let us find hope and a bigger kind of joy together during this holiday season.
