Intergenerational Easter Service

Have you ever felt that you were losing something about yourself – or even that it was being taken away? Those moments are like deaths, and what follows can be like resurrection: something within us being born out of the ashes of what we used to know or what we used to be. In this intergenerational service, we hear the rest of the Easter story as Dan’s Unitarian mother told it to him, and Amy leads us all in using our minds and bodies to remember those transformative moments. We also celebrate several of our community’s newest children today in child dedications. Music: Elizabeth Russ, soprano

In The Dark

Did Jesus know, when he entered Jerusalem to cheers and choruses of “Hosanna!,” that this was a moment of triumph? Did he know it was the beginning of the end of his life? The most important moments often go unrecognized. Instead, we build a life in the dark, by feel, and need hindsight to discover what was most important. Dan tells the Palm Sunday story and Amy preaches. Music: Jessica Martin, guitar

Pluribus And Unum

With fewer people vaccinating their children and the incidence of once-rare diseases on the rise, our community is struggling to respect two ethical imperatives: the responsibilities that individuals have to the community, and those the community has to individuals. How should we weigh decisions that will curtail some people’s freedoms? Music: Kerensa Fu, flute
