“Stillness”

The Rev. Angela Herrera

In her poem "Today," Mary Oliver writes, “I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling / a terrific distance. Stillness. One of the doors / into the temple.” Today we’ll look through that “door,” in an introduction to this month’s theological theme.

“A Theology of Forgiveness”

The Rev. Bob LaVallee

Unitarian Universalism has many strengths: deep inclusiveness, an explicit call to work for

justice, and the encouragement of personal pursuit of meaning and purpose. However, our

faith does not have a well-articulated theology of forgiveness and redemption. How can we

do better, and develop resilience and connection within ourselves and our communities?

“The Promise and the Practice (BIPOC Voices)”

The Rev. Dr. Rebekah A. Savage

The Promise and the Practice is a celebration of our shared commitment to live into a new

chapter in the story of our faith. This worship centers the voices and stories of Black,

Indigenous, and other People of Color UUs, calling upon the lived experience of BIPOC

religious professionals as sacred text. It’s a turning moment; a choice to listen deeply to the

stories in our movement that have not been heard—or taken to heart—by all UUs.
