Worship Services Online via Zoom

Join us Sundays at 11 am on Zoom

 

We are a Unitarian Universalist community gathered to move our spirits and the world toward love. Worship services are the shared spiritual practice of our community.

 

As we care for our communities and neighbors during this time of COVID-19, our services will continue to happen online via Zoom, an easy-to-use video conferencing site. While we're staying away from one another in person, let's stay connected online. Join us for a time of prayer, music, singing, and a short sermon.

Winter 2020-2021 Schedule:

January 24, 2021: Imagine

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

Imagine what our church could be like if money were no object. Imagine a society that is radically more just, equitable, and compassionate. Let's dream big.

 

January 17, 2021: The Movement, Not (Just) the Man

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

Leaders are real and important. But leaders don't act alone. Sometimes the way our society tells the story of social change obscures the organizers behind the scenes, the many years of work, the power of coalition and the reality of community. Let's look at that this week.

January 10, 2021: On the Threshold

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

It is a time of endings and beginnings. In Christian tradition, this is the season the Wise Ones arrive to kneel before possibility. In our political realm, new leaders arive with many hopes and plans. Where are WE going? What star guides your way for 2021? What can we imagine for our future?

January 3, 2021: Out of the Box

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

Can we start our new year with creativity? Rev. Elizabeth will preach on six words submitted by congregants, inviting us to consider engaging our world with creativity and imagination. Suggest a word by emailing Rev. EB! She'll pick any that are the most common, supplemented by ones picked out of a hat.

December 27: Our Church and the Beginnings of American Unitarianism

George Wardle, Church Historian

The service will share stories about our heritage and our historic connection with the beginnings of Unitarianism.  What was the beloved Rev. Thomas Gray preaching here in Jamaica Plain that led to this church and many Boston churches to be identified as Unitarian? How is it that so many neighboring churches split over this controversy while our church did not?  How has this heritage affected our identity over the years?  

December 20: When Jesus Was Born

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

The tradition of Christmas/Nativity pageants meets 2020. In this virtual pageant, our church families tell the story of Jesus' birth once again.

December 13: Waiting for the World to Turn

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

Advent is a time of waiting. In Christian tradition, it is a time of preparing for God. How might we wait faithfully for a world of love and justice?

 

December 6: Time for the Dark

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

We enter the darkest weeks of the year. What if we approached them as a gift? What rest, safety, or coziness can we find in the gentle darkness?
