Sunday, February 1 "An Irresistible Sense of Mission"
Some of the most powerful movements for social justice have been inspired and sustained by religious faith and practice. Many of us yearn to bring our justice commitments into deeper conversation with our spiritual lives, to find that same inspiration and sustenance. How might we learn do this, individually and together -- and what difference can it make? Please join us in welcoming Special Guest the Rev. Kathleen McTigue, the Director of the UU College of Social Justice. Prior to accepting this position in 2012, she served as a parish minister for 25 years, first in North Carolina and then New Haven, CT. She currently resides in Boston, MA.
Sunday, February 8 "Nothing Left to Say"
When things seem wrong, the urge to “do something” is immensely powerful. Feeling helpless can lead us to urgently try strategies that can’t work, or simply to turn away. Rev. David Morris asks: When it seems there’s nothing left to do or say, what possibilities are still there for us?
A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection – where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
