9:15 FORUM: RENEWAL OF THE ROCK ALTAR

This Sunday is our In-Gathering and will be led by April.  We invite you to come join our circle of friends as we celebrate the turn of the seasons, reconnect and share our journey stories. If you have a rock or similar object, symbolic of your travels, please bring it to add to the Rock Altar

10:30 SERVICE: LOVE KEEPS REACHING OUT

Rev. Phil Lund will return to the Blue Hills UU to give another service.  He notes that now more than ever, our country needs to know that the values of justice, equity, and compassion are alive and well in our UU congregations and fellowships. The best way to do this is by living out those values in ways that reach out in love to help those in our communities who are harmed by injustice and inequality. UU religious communities can do just that by finding the place where, as Fredrick Buechner says, our “deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
