Preaching to the Choir

Sunday, 03.3.2019
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
Sometimes people wonder why Unitarian Universalists so frequently address issues that so many of us are already fired up about. Some even wonder if our eagerness to address social and political issues is simply a cover for spiritual vacuousness. Can Unitarian Universalism’s work for justice feed the hunger of 21st century seekers? Rev. Lisa Schwartz draws on ancient wisdom to reflect on these issues.

From Sick and Tired to Good and Mad

Women’s anger didn’t start with the Women’s March and the #metoo movement. But in recent years more women have been fed up with a system that makes them into a marginalized majority. Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz explores the catalytic potential of women’s rage, and the possibilities to be found in solidarity.

Love and Liberation

Mariela Pérez-Simons
What is love? How does the universal love of our Universalist ancestors translate to our lives today? What does it mean to live a life guided by love? And how can love become a force for liberation? Our Ministerial Intern Mariela Pérez-Simons explores various dimensions of love and will invite us to write love letters to life (or other living things.)

In Matters of the Spirit There Is No Color

Sunday, 01.20.2019
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
Racism is often presented as a social justice issue, and the Fellowship usually puts anti-racist work at the heart of our social justice work. But at our heart we are a congregation, not a social justice non-profit, and at our center are matters of the spirit. Rev. Lisa Schwartz explores how our mission of “fostering spiritual growth” affects and upholds our justice work.

Make the Fellowship Great Again

Sunday, 01.6.2019
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
What makes a place great in the first place, let alone calls it to return to greatness? Is there a way to honor the lessons of the past while we trust the dawning future? Rev. Lisa sees the new year stretching out like an invitingly blank page, and she talks about how we might imagine together a great future for our beloved community.

Let It Shine!

Sunday, 12.2.2018
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
Unitarian Universalists honor many religious traditions, especially holidays and Holy Days. And sometimes we need a way to celebrate what makes our faith unique. Chalica is completely made up, and it’s totally authentic. It begins on the first Sunday of December and lasts for seven days, celebrating a UU principle each day. What a fun way to explore our deepest values and consider the timeless truths of our own tradition!
