Traffic tips for one service and two services.

We leave some previous sermon topics here, to give you an idea of the things we talk about. It is easier to show "eclectic" than to spell it. We have three sermon collections, in the navigation bar to your left.

YOUR name could be here if you give a sermon this summer.

Salvation
April 27, 2014 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00 am)

Our ministerial candidate withdrew, leaving us with a gap to fill. Mary Randall, worship associate, will share the sermon "Salvation", written by the Rev. Cyndi Simpson, M. Div, who is currently serving as Interim Minister at First Church in Barre - Universalist. The question posed regarding "salvation" is: "Is there anything in the concept of 'salvation' that is of worth for Unitarian Universalists?" Rev. Simpson first gave this sermon in 2009 at First Unitarian Society of Denver, Colorado, and gave it again at the Unitarian Church of Norfolk on October 9, 2011.
