Apr 28, 2019

This worship service from April 28, 2019 was created and presented by participants in our Coming of Age program. These ninth graders spent the year exploring their Unitarian Universalist identity, history, spirituality, their feelings and their beliefs. Their work culminates in this worship service where each delivers a personal credo statement that they have developed. Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage gives a brief introduction and shares her own reflections following the credos.

In this podcast, you will hear the credos of half the Coming of Age participants. In order, they are LiZhong DuBreuil, Josephine Welin, James McConnell, Sydney Libert, Marlena Entner, Vivien Wildfield, Mitch Brumirski, Milo Purrenhage, Nina Istas and Elliot Andries.

To hear the other 10 participants' credos, please visit http://unitytemple.libsyn.com/coming-of-age-pt-2

The theme for April is what it means to be a people of wholeness. To read about our theme-based ministry, please visit http://www.unitytemple.org/faith-development/soul-connections on our website.

Apr 21, 2019

This Easter sermon was delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on April 21, 2019. Rev. Gage shares, "We are exploring the theme of Wholeness this April at Unity Temple. As I consider the Easter story with this lens—the whole of the Easter story--not just the Sunday morning rising up part, but that which precedes it—it reminds me to honor and celebrate all of who we are. All of it. The challenges, the achievements, the mistakes, the forgiveness, the imperfections, and the joy and the love.We screw up all the time. But there is always another chance to change and grow and learn."

On this special Choir Sunday on April 14, 2019, the Unity Temple Choir under the direction of Marty Swisher, Unity Temple Music Director, performs John Kramer's "The Immigrant Experience," a choral cantata in seven movements. Scored for full chorus, soprano, baritone and tenor soloists and chamber ensemble, the work describes the journey and struggles of immigrants coming to America to realize the promise of freedom. The work features texts by our U.S. founding fathers establishing our country as a place of welcome for immigrants. The musical offering is preceded by a reading from We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria by Wendy Pearlman.

John Kramer serves as Music Director at the Winchester Unitarian Society in Winchester, Massachusetts. The performance includes guest vocalists tenor John Concepcion, baritone Keanon Kyles and soprano Rosalind Lee. They are accompanied by Peter Engel-Storms on piano, Jean Hatmaker on violoncello, Meg Lanfear on violin and Daniel Williams on clarinet.

Those wishing to follow along with the text of "The Immigrant Experience" while listening can find it at http://www.unitytemple.org/sites/default/files/The%20Immigrant%20Experience%20Text.pdf. Additionally, the composer's program notes can be found at http://www.unitytemple.org/sites/default/files/Program%20Notes%20by%20the%20Composer.pdf.

Apr 7, 2019

Sermon delivered by Senior Minister Rev. Alan Taylor on April 7,2019. How could a worship service in 1987 where the minister distributed condoms be nearly forgotten? Rev. Taylor shares reflections of Rev. Mark DeWolfe, the first openly gay minister in Canada, whose brilliant career was cut short by AIDS and the prophetic witness of his colleague Carl Titchener whose prophetic witness should be celebrated.
