The World’s Religions: Buddhism

November 15, 2020

by Reverend Anthony Makar

Grace Durfee, Worship Associate

David Blazer, Director of Music

Our year-long sermon series exploring some of the world's religions sources of our Unitarian Universalist spiritual way continues with Buddhism. Our study text is Huston Smith’s The World’s Religions: The 50th Anniversary Edition (available at your local bookstore, at Amazon, and other outlets). Reach out to Rev. Makar directly if you are unable to afford purchasing the book. As preparation for the sermon, please read the chapter on Buddhism (pp. 82-153) before the service.

Ellen Carvill-Ziemer is in the middle of giving an introduction about the history of Christmas celebrations for her homily "God In Between" when a rowdy bunch interrupt her to put on a play. Alex and Sarah Piotrowski, Bill Hudson, Hollie Brubaker, and John Youel perform. The play itself is adapted from one collected in Gander Kentucky in 1930 by Marie Cambell.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner by Queers and Allies

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner by Queers and Allies

June 27, 2010

In this service we will ask, “What is an Ally?” and “What moves that person to stand with another through hardship when being a bystander is an option?" We will explore the important role that straight allies play in how gay people are accepted and respected in our church and in our communities. Together, both gay and straight, using poetry and song and stories, we will share how being and having loving and supportive allies helps all of us to live our UU principles.
