Speaker: The Rev. Rachael Hayes

Conscience and Democracy

The fifth principle of Unitarian Universalism is “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” What does that actually look like, where can we find these values enacted in our congregation and in larger Unitarian Universalism, and how are we called to live this principle?

After the service, there will be an opportunity to sign the Membership Book for those who wish to join our UU Society today.

The Free and Responsible Search

The fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism is “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” What does that actually look like, where can we find these values enacted in our congregation, and how are we called to live this principle?

Silly Octopus

What can an unexpected encounter with an octopus teach us about living wholeheartedly? And what might Ralph Waldo Emerson and poetic theater have to do with it? Please join us for a service that is silly, soulful, and meets you where you are.

Acceptance and Encouragement

The third principle of Unitarian Universalism is “acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.” What does that actually look like, where can we find these values enacted in our congregation, and how are we called to live this principle?

Hope and Positivity: World AIDS Day

Human Immunodeficiency Virus treatment and prevention continue to advance, but unequal access to advancements make HIV a justice issue as well as a medical issue. The dedicated offering for World AIDS Day will benefit A Positive Place, which provides HIV care and prevention services in Hampshire County.
