Sunday, October 08, 2017
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Our Jewish Heritage Series 2: Weaving a Home for All. In this all-ages service, we will honor the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, a festival of the harvest, of abundance, and of hospitality. We will build our own sukkah, or booth, in our sanctuary and decorate it together. Service led by the Rev. Sarah C. Stewart and the Worship Arts Collaborative.
We are delighted to welcome Nat Needle, whose jazz piano interpretations are well known in the Worcester area. Nat will be providing the special music for the service to celebrate Sukkot.

"Prophet, Priest and King "
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Our Jewish Heritage Service Series 3: Prophet, Priest and King. The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart preaching. In ancient Israel, leadership was ordained by God and shared among the prophet, the priest and the king. All of these roles served the people in different ways. In our Unitarian Universalism, we believe that holiness lives in each person, and that there is a prophethood, a priesthood and a leadership of all believers.
The Festival Choir will perform congregational favorites: O Sing! Rejoice!, Last Words of David, and Al Shlosha D'varim.

"Betting the Farm"
Preaching: The Rev. Barbara Merritt, Minister Emerita
Our human existence invites us to take all kinds of risks; some foolish and thrilling, others demanding a lifetime of sacrifice and commitment. How do we decide where to invest our time, talent and energy? The sermon will ponder what makes a good bet, one worth “selling all you have”, and bravely walking into the unknown.  
The Festival Choir performs some of Barbara Merritt's favorite music:
Laudate Dominum, Peace Like a River, Many Gifts One Spirit, Prayer of Being, I Choose Love(in the Midst of Pain), Healing Light, Gloria in Excelsis, and Over the Rainbow -- a lot of music - Barbara calls it a "Music Sunday" to complement her sermon theme.

Sunday, October 29, 2017
"Scary Monsters "
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
We make our fears into monsters, and our monsters represent our fears. From the Victorian vampire to our current obsession with zombies, a culture's monsters tell us something about what our fears are and how we can confront them.
We welcome JazzTrane, Joy of Music's jazz ensemble. JazzTrane will play some monster music and everyone can make a monster mask during the service.
