A People of Integrity and Love

 
Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader

Join us as we explore those quality of integrity and love that allow us to become the people we want to be. How might we together, especially in unsettling times, make the world a place of greater justice, peace, and love?

Each of Us Has a Name

Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader

Sarah Dan Jones, Music Director 

We are all part of a longer human story. This story from our birth, imposes expectations and identities that we may or may not have chosen. In this service we'll explore Poet Zelda's poem, Each of Us Has a Name, to help us to understand ourselves as wonderfully integrated and whole.

A Journey of Curiosity and Awe (or how to Mix Science and Religion)

Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes and Rev. Emily Burr, Worship Leaders

Sarah Dan Jones, Music Director, and Choir

Join us for a service that explores the connection between religion and science in a conversation between two women who are both scientists and ministers. Before becoming a minister, Emily was a physicist and studied astronomy. At one time, Linda was a molecular biologist. What happened and why?!

And Then There Was Light

Rev. Bruce Taylor, Guest Worship Leader

William Gunn, Guest Musician

Born in Paris and blinded at the age of seven, Jacques Lusseyran never lost his sense of vision. Guided by the vivid experience of an inner light, he drew upon prodigious gifts of empathy and emotional intelligence to make his way in a war-torn wold. Today's sermon traces the path and significance of an exemplary life.

Rev. Bruce Taylor was ordained to ministry in 2009. He has served several congregations in Massachusetts. In his free time, Bruce likes to play the flute, do creative photography, and take long walks in the woods and mountains of New Hampshire.

About our Services

Starr King Unitarian Universalist Sunday Services follow a traditional Unitarian Universalist structure. All services begin at 9:30 a.m. and last about an hour. 

Elements of a typical morning worship service usually include:

  • Words of welcome

  • Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith

  • A multigenerational segment, such as a “The Story”

  • Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles

  • A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation

  • meditation or prayer

  • Readings—ancient or contemporary

  • A sermon given by a professional minister, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation

  • An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation or for justice work in the community.
