Living Peace: A Quaker Commitment 

Peace is a value that permeates all Quaker teachings. Friends (Quakers) are challenged to be peace educators, to live the value of peace every day at work and at home. In order to reach these goals — and make “peace” more than an expedient slogan — Quakers must continually reinterpret and reevaluate themselves in a changing world. Charley Basham will talk about the Quaker Peace Testimony, an expression of that nonviolent faith and a tradition which goes back over 400 years. Speaker, Charley Basham. Lay Leader, Barbara Braley. Accompanist, Marsha Sousa.

  • The Elementary Class will be learning about First Aid with Marilyn and Michael.
  • The middle school class does not meet this week, please join your parents for the service.

Encounters With the Sacred: Our Stories and our Faith 

Religion tends to put so much energy into making meaning of life. Perhaps we can gain more from making meaning FROM life. Peter continues an exploration of how personal experience is such a vital part of Unitarian Universalism. Speaker, Peter Pierson. Accompanist, Susan Johnson.

Beyond the Veil: A Day of Remembrance 

During the Celtic festival of Samhain, when it was believed that the veil separating this world from the next was at its thinnest, people provided hospitality for dead ancestors. Even if you are not a pagan (or a pagan at heart), it is a good time to acknowledge loved ones who are no longer with us and keep them close through memory. Come slip behind the veil for just for a moment to light a candle in memory of someone who gave joy or meaning to your life. If you would like, bring a photograph or memento to place on the memory altar. You may share a brief detail that brings them back for you or light your candle in silence. Lay Leaders,  Penni Haskins and Shaun Lott. Accompanist, Laurel Holmes.

Unitarianism Begins I: Michael Servetus 

In honor of the 456th anniversary of Michael Servetus’ martyrdom, we’re reposting this sermon which the late Rev. Frank Schulman deliverd at UUFF on Sept. 7, 2003:
