Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum will be preaching.
Mystery and wonder are inherent in the Christmas season, but sometimes as we grow up we lose the sense of the magical possibility of the holidays. We’ll reclaim a little bit of that awe on this Sunday.

Our Unitarian-Universalist religious heritage compels us to address the important, widespread, and complex social issue of domestic violence. This special service, created and led by FPC's Domestic Violence Awareness Group, will focus on what is now a problem of epidemic proportions in our country and in our communities. Ben Atherton-Zeman, a nationally recognized public speaker who has given presentations and performances dealing with gender-based violence in 46 states and 12 countries, will be our guest speaker.
A member of FPC, Ben is now studying at the Boston University School of Theology.

At our intergenerational Thanksgiving service we will break bread together and celebrate the season of harvest. We will also distribute UUSC Guest at Your Table boxes and talk about what it means to be a “welcome table.” The bread we share is baked by FPC youth, who will also participate in the service. At the end of each service we will invite people to gather outside to place our transgender pride flags on our lawn in recognition of the upcoming Transgender Day of Remembrance.

We call ours a “democratic faith.” Why is democracy a religious value? Where is the line between religion and politics? How do we live our faith and keep separation between church and state? In the tradition of the “election sermon,” our minister will share her thoughts. The Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will be preaching.

The Rev. Tom Rosiello and The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum
All Souls Day is a day we remember all of those who have gone before us, and especially those we love whom we’ve lost in the last year. For this service you are invited to bring a photo or a memento to place on our altar of remembrance. This year we will also have small stones we invite you to place on the altar, onto which you can write the name of a loved one, or feel free to paint or otherwise decorate a stone to bring and place. After the service, the stones may be taken home or placed in a designated location in our garden.
We’re delighted to welcome back our minister emeritus, The Rev. Tom Rosiello for this service, who will co-officiate the service with our minister, The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum.

At this time of year, it’s easy for many of us to find spirituality in nature with the leaves turning golden and red. This service will explore transcendentalism, spirituality, and the season upon us. The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum will be preaching.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, LBGT History Month (and includes Coming Out Day), and Bullying Prevention Month. It’s a month in which we might be more aware that we need places of sanctuary in our life. Using the metaphor of the umbrella (hint: bring your umbrella to worship), we’ll explore how we are a living sanctuary for ourselves and each other.

John Murray preached his first sermon in the U.S. on September 30,1770. What about the Universalist message still resonates today? What do we struggle with? What does Universalism look like for our future? Cynthia Landrum will lead the service.
