February Services / Past Sermons


About Salvation
led by Kevin Carson

Who is saved and who is not saved has been debated for centuries. What might "Salvation" mean to Unitarian Universalists?


For the Love of Animals: A Morning with E.B. White

led by Rev. Dr. Nancy Jay Crumbine

From his immortal essays in The New Yorker, to his beloved Charlotte’s Web, E.B. White remains one of the greatest defenders of the equality of all species. His broad articulate empathy has not only saved the lives of count-less spiders across the globe but continues to inspire all of us with an irresistible invitation to return to the lake. Drawing from his stories, essays, poems, and letters, we will celebrate White’s versatile legacy.


The Dignity of an Awakened Mind
led by Roger Guest

When we are ruled by confusion, our actions and behaviors often cause unnecessary suffering and disharmony. If the clouds of bewilderment disperse, a tendency toward natural kindness tends to emerge. It is interesting to explore the allegiance between genuine human dignity and skillful action in ourselves and others.


Our Journeys
led by Rev. Nick Boke

If life’s a journey, it’s probably a good idea to pause from time to time to reflect on the kind of questions every traveler periodically asks of his or her travels, to name a few: When did I head down this particular pathway, and why? Where have I come to, and how did I get here? Where do I think I’m going, and how will I know when I’ve arrived? How am I doing, and how can I know?
