Sermon: "The Thief and the Moon"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah Stewart
Special musical guest: Becky Bronstein, cello
The spiritual teachings of Buddhism and Jesus are full of mysterious wisdom. They teach that we find what is most valuable when we lose what we thought mattered most. Sometimes, to experience the presence of the holy, we must be emptied of false values, even those that have been important to us.

Sermon: "Breaking, Broken, Healing, Whole"
Preaching: The Rev. Erika Hewitt, guest minister
What does Unitarian Universalism have to say about brokenness (messiness, pain, oppression) and how to find wholeness (peace, health, reconciliation)? If you poke around in enough religious traditions, you’ll be surprised by what you find… and you’ll discover new reasons to be proud, comforted, and enlivened by our UU theology. The Festival Choir will sing music in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Erika serves as the half-time minister of the Midcoast UU Fellowship (in Damariscotta, Maine) and as the part-time Curator of the UUA’s Worship Web.

Annual Meeting Sunday
Sermon: "Begin As You Mean to Continue"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
The Festival Choir will sing.
Will Sherwood, Director of Music
This piece of new year's advice will guide us as we begin a new church year and prepare for our Annual Meeting following the service.
Our Unitarian and Universalist traditions invite us into shared ministry as a whole church, serving the world.
