Love is Like a Box of Chocolates 

Lay Leader: Jana Peirce  Accompanist: Laurel Holmes

A heart shaped box of chocolates brings thoughts of romance and candlelight and, well…er, Hallmark and Whitman’s Candies.  Valentine’s Day has become commercialized—or maybe it started out that way—but our lives are nonetheless filled with the genuine article: love in all its complexity and variation. We will spend some time today exploring the many shapes love assumes in our lives – love of parents and children, pets or cheese, and yes, even the romantic variety that gets so much air play.  We’ve asked an assortment of people to give us their thoughts on love — in word, verse and song — each in 1-3 minute bite-sized morsels. And when they are through everyone will get a piece of chocolate as part of the chocolate communion that concludes our service. As Lucy says in Peanuts, “All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!”

Love in Many Faces 

Lay Leader: Barbara Clark  Worship Leader Rev. Sarah Schurr

Many gay and lesbian couples are now celebrating the freedom to marry, after years of not possessing that right.   This break-through comes in part due to the UUA’s Standing on the Side of Love campaign.  This service will explore the many faces of love and family.

Martin the Visitor 

Lay Leader: Nicole Stewart Worship Leader Rev. Sarah Schur

It seems that Martin Luther King Jr. briefly attended a UU Church but found that it was not a good place from which to launch his work on justice. Our heart is in the right place. What has kept us from being that beacon of justice we could  be?
