May 5, 2019

Sermon delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on May 5, 2019. When we are called to be a people of curiosity, we don’t just share in each others' interests, we are called to be open to who we are and who we are becoming, in the fullest sense of the word. When we show curiosity about one another, we are often building and strengthening relationships. And when we seek out others’ ideas and feelings by our questions and listening, then curiosity is a form of love.

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."
