"Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Is your mission saving the free world, like it was for the agents of Mission: Impossible? Or is it accomplishing something in the new year, or living up to your ideals and goals? Understanding our mission in life helps us achieve it.
The magical strains of beautiful flute selections will be presented by Madeline Browning. (Will Sherwood, piano)

"Poor People's Campaign"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Toward the end of his life, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had begun to work on issues of poverty as well as race. He saw how racism and poverty interacted to harm Americans. Today, the Rev. William Barber II is leading a new Poor People's Campaign, because there is still work for us to do.
The Festival Choir celebrates MLK Sunday with a wide assortment of traditional spiritual favorites: "I'm Bound for the Promised Land," "Elijah Rock," "Joshua Fit de Battle of Jericho," and "Wade in the Water"
James Haupt and Will Sherwood will present 4-hand piano duet gospel favorites for the Prelude and Postlude.

Worship Leader: Mandy Beal
One of the hallmarks of Unitarian Universalism is social justice work. Yet at times, it can feel as though we are wasting our efforts by fighting a battle we can’t win. But we are not alone. Others have come before us and have passed down wisdom that can give us hope in our ongoing struggles to build a more just society.
The Festival Choir presents rousing anthems: "My Lord What a Mornin'," "Shine on Me," Franck's "Kyrie Eleison," and Dello Joio's "Prayer".

"Gathered Here in One Strong Body"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Like many white Americans, I grew up with racism in my family's heritage and in the world around me. Unitarian Universalism helped me understand racism and introduced me to a more multicultural world, and continues to seek ways to live into an anti-racist ideal. On this Annual Meeting Sunday, we remind ourselves of the promise and hope of our liberal faith.
We welcome the grand sounds of the WPI Big Band (Rich Falco, director) to join our Annual Meeting celebrations. Jazz Standards and Big Band repertoire will fill our space.
