Nov 18, David Billings, “Deep Denial: The Persistence of White Supremacy in U.S. History and Life.”

Special music for this service performed by Karen Somerville and/or Sombarkin.

Nov 25 Rev. Sue Browning, “The Joy of Breaking Bread as Community.”

The sacred is present in nature. The sacred is present in community. The sacred is present in the sharing of food. Many traditions, including Unitarian Universalism, have rituals for the sharing of food, as a community, at harvest time. Please join Rev. Sue Browning for our annual Intergenerational Bread Communion service. There will be a role for all as we set the table together, and share memories and stories related to food. We welcome all to this special service!

Dec 2, Rev. Sue Browning, “What If Life Is Not a Problem to Be Solved?”

What might happen when you approach the day-to-day with a sense of unfolding what is to be? What might it open if less energy was spent determining the cause and effect of each unknown? At this service Rev. Sue Browning will explore lessons we may learn from the trusting nature of the mystics amongst us.

Dec 9, Rev. Greg Chute, “Walking with God.”

Many believe in the appeal of having a god as a life companion; how that seems to offer comfort, direction, security to those who choose to believe. How do we non-theists fill those gaps, if at all. Who or what do we walk with?

Dec. 16, Rev. Sue Browning, “When Hard Lines Fade.”

Of late the term “stay in your lane” is heard often. It translates roughly to “You do your job, I’ll do mine.” At this service with Rev. Sue Browning we’ll consider when this may be helpful guidance, when it’s not, and the spiritual practices that may help us decide how far to extend our reach.

Dec. 23, Rev. Sue Browning, “Eve of the Eve: A Service of Unity.”

Join the Unitarian Universalists of the Chester River for a December 23, Christmas Eve (of Eve) service, complete with music, story and the tradition of closing with “Silent Night.” This year with Rev. Sue Browning we’ll reflect on the ways winter holidays offer a sense of oneness with all humanity.
