“RUAUU?” with Rev. Danielle DiBona. Were you a Unitarian Universalist long before you found Unitarian Universalism? What makes a UU? Let’s talk about it.

Children's Programming: The story of Passover.
“Dayenu” with Rev. Erika Hewitt Why is this Sunday morning different from all other mornings? It’s a multigenerational Passover seder: the ritual telling of the Jewish people’s most important story. Passover marks the escape and freedom of the enslaved Israelites from Egypt,reminding us that today there are still injustices and oppression in the world that require our attention -- and our action.
Children's Programming: Today's service is a Multigenerational Seder Service, followed by “Mystery Friends Reveal” potluck lunch. There is no special children's programming.
“The Myth of Self-Made Salvation” with Rev. Erika Hewitt. What does “salvation” mean to Unitarian Universal- ists — especially on Easter? Rev. Erika will explore the near-religious sentiment of self-reliance underlying the “American Dream,” and lift up our UU theology for its counter-message that together is the only way we survive this world. This service will include a reverse offering: at least 12 members will receive cash, and be invited to use that money to spread love and com- passion in our community — or in the wider world.
Children's Programming: Children’s Easter worship and jellybean communion (and an Easter Egg hunt).
Unitarian Universalism’s seventh principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part” makes this a day to celebrate religiously. Come celebrate with us!
This is our Share the Plate Sunday. This month's recipient is FARMS.
Children's Programming: Pledge to the Earth.
“Sailing on Dry Land” with Rev. Andrea Greenwood. Sometimes we are swept up or carried aloft in our lives right here on earth. How does that happen? Mystical powers inherent in the universe, or kismet bringing people together? I am reflecting on college mentors, chance meetings, and wild places. Andrea Greenwood is a Unitarian Universalist minis- ter who has been serving, in one capacity of another, at the First Parish of Watertown (MA) for 25 years. She and her husband, Mark Harris, have three almost- adult sons and have also co-written a book, An Intro- duction to the Unitarian and Universalist Traditions. Although she grew up in Massachusetts, Andrea’s family hails from Belfast and Rockland, and she con- tinues to spend summers in Owls Head.
