Packing a Spiritual Backpack for Hard Times

Packing a Spiritual Backpack for Hard Times

Join guest speaker Rev. Jo Murphy.
Throughout the years many articles have discussed what to put in your emergency bag. As climate change ramps up, I have seen more articles about preparing a bag for the end of the world. As UU’s, what do we put in our spiritual backpack for hard times? What tools does our faith provide us with to couple with our emergency knives and fire starters? Today we will explore what we already have and what we should gather for our spiritual emergency bag. 

The Good Place

The Good Place

Why does it matter that First Parish in Sudbury exists? Why is it important that Unitarian Universalism has a voice in the world? What does this “Good Place” mean in individual lives? (and, oh, by the way…it’s the beginning of our Stewardship Drive).

The Daily Round

The Daily Round

Does the phrase “spiritual practice” mean anything to you? Why or why not? Is there something you do every day that connects you with something more than life as usual?  What might that be? Why might it be keenly helpful?  Or maybe not?  Let’s explore. 

Understanding the Baha’i Religion

Understanding the Baha’i Religion

Join us for Understanding the Baha’i Religion. According to Baha’i teachings, religion is revealed in an orderly and progressive way by a single God through manifestations of God. Baha’i is a newer world religion started in Iran in the 19th century. As of 2020, there were about 8 million Baha’i’s in the world. Such an interesting tradition with clear similarities to Unitarian Universalism, and some important differences too. Why did UUism form? And, why any religion?

Got Privilege?

Got Privilege?

Is the work of dismantling white privilege as the dominant narrative, something that every UU might consider as integral to our faith tradition?
